The trucking industry is an important asset to the Florida state and national economy. We need large trucks to haul goods across state lines and keep commerce flowing. Unfortunately, semis, tractor-trailers, eighteen-wheelers, and other large trucks do pose a danger to other drivers on Florida roadways. When these vehicles are operated or maintained negligently, they can cause serious harm to other Florida drivers. Between the massive size of the trucks and the possibility that their hauls (whether manufacturing equipment, building materials, or dangerous chemicals) will fly free in a collision and create additional hazards, accidents involving large trucks are typically much more dangerous and much more likely to be fatal than accidents involving passenger cars. A seasoned and effective Southern Florida truck accident attorney can help you and your family recover after a large truck crash.
The dedicated and compassionate truck accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A., have helped secure significant recovery for victims of negligent truck drivers or trucking companies. If you and your family need assistance recovering after a Florida trucking accident, our personal injury legal team is here to help.
