If you stopped at this website because you were injured or your loved one was killed in a trucking accident, you’re not alone. Commercial semi-trucks weigh up to 30 times more than personal passenger vehicles, meaning an accident between a passenger car and a semi-truck has more potential for injury or fatality than an accident between two passenger vehicles.
In the United States, it’s estimated that at least one person is either injured or killed in an accident with a semi-truck more often than every 20 minutes! The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has concluded that in 2017, Florida saw nearly 32,000 accidents involving a semi-truck which included 27 fatalities, 57 people who were rendered incapacitated, and 1,053 people who suffered other types of injuries. This means that at least 3 people are injured or killed each day in an incident involving a semi-truck in the State of Florida.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration cites Florida as being in the top ten states with the highest average number of fatal semi-truck accidents. Florida, in addition to the other top nine states on that list, represents 51% of all deadly semi-truck-related crashes in the country!
