Large semi-trucks are a regular sight in the Tampa area, whether you drive on I-75, I-275, or I-4. These trucks often exit the highways to make deliveries and keep shelves stocked at Publix, Walmart, and other popular stores.
We also see more and more delivery trucks driving through residential neighborhoods, such as the Channel District, New Tampa, South Tampa, and other areas. These trucks deliver the ever-increasing number of post-pandemic online orders.
While these large trucks provide important services to both homes and businesses throughout Tampa, they also present the risk of serious crashes and injuries. When a truck hits your car, the results can be devastating, and the injuries you suffer can change your life.

Eighteen-wheelers are common inhabitants of various Florida roads, and truck drivers
must comply with strict federal trucking regulations to keep others safe. For example, a truck driver may only drive for a specified number of hours at a time before they must take time off to sleep and rejuvenate.
A fully-loaded semi-truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and stretch over 75 feet in length, so any smaller vehicle in a collision with these vehicles can suffer severe damage. When an accident occurs with these large vehicles, the injuries can be catastrophic and even deadly.

There are many different kinds of accident; here are three more common kinds of truck accidents:
On the back of every trailer there is a guard bar to keep smaller vehicles from traveling beneath the trailer. An underride accident occurs when this bar fails. The results of this can be very serious as the car will generally travel beneath the trailer and the bottom will scrape the hood all the way back past the driver’s seat. A rollover accident can occur when a driver puts on his brakes and the trailer begins to slide around the side of the cab. If the wheels catch it will trip the trailer and result in a rollover accident. A jackknife accident begins in a very similar way. The diver puts on their brakes and the cab stops while the trailer does not. It will slide around the side of the cab until it is facing the opposite direction, pinning the cab in an unmovable position.

Many factors might contribute to truck crashes, but most accidents happen due to driver error.
This might include:
Driver negligence is not the only possible cause, as some crashes happen due to improper cargo loading, inadequate maintenance or inspections, and the negligent hiring of unqualified drivers, among other reasons. Our team can investigate and gather evidence to determine what caused your truck crash.
A negligent driver is usually the liable party in an accident claim. However, in truck accident cases, the trucking company regularly shares liability. This means we might file insurance claims against the driver, the trucking company, and any other negligent party.
We need to review your specific circumstances before we can say what your claim is worth.
However, compensation in many truck accident cases covers:
We will always fight for the maximum compensation you deserve for all your losses.
