Commercial vehicle accidents: Collison with semi ends in tragedy

Motor vehicle accidents occur in Florida on a daily basis and some involve large tractor-trailers. In the moments traveling near a tractor-trailer, it is often easy to understand how much commercial vehicle accidents can impact a smaller vehicle.

Truck accidents and their consequences

Because of the devastating injuries that a truck accident could cause, the payouts for such accidents are often extremely high for victims.

Within hours, representatives from the truck company are often on the scene.

How Marion County Attorneys Help You in Truck Accident Trials

Accidents involving large trucks are usually catastrophic primarily because of the size of the vehicles and their load. Truck accidents are addressed in depth by the US Federal Law as well as Interstate Laws. Operators of such trucks or dumpster trailers transporting hazardous material, and vehicles carrying at least 15 passengers must possess a commercial driving license. In Florida, the drivers have to undergo rigorous training and evaluation before being granted the permit. Despite these measures, commercial vehicle accidents continue to ruin the lives of many innocent residents of Marion County due to the transporters' recklessness.

Regulations aim to keep truckers from driving while fatigued

Fatigued truck drivers in Ocala will often go to many lengths to keep driving. After all, the more hours they are on the road, the more money they will make. However, a large, fully-loaded truck can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, meaning a crash involving a semi-truck can cause significant damage, and could seriously injure or kill other drivers or passengers. For this reason, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has regulations regarding how long a trucker can be on the road before being required to take a rest break.
