18 Wheeler Accidents in Fort Lauderdale

Have you been injured in an 18 wheeler accident?

Accidents with 18 wheelers can be catastrophic disasters. The truck drivers who pilot these enormous cargo vehicles, also known as semi-trucks or tractor trailers, in the Ft. Lauderdale area are usually under pressure to make long-haul deliveries on time. They often take actions meant to save time and money for themselves as well as the trucking company. Unfortunately, these measures often end up costing innocent people a great deal of pain and suffering, sometimes even their lives. The loads in 18 wheeler trailers are sometimes improperly packed, making the entire truck unstable.

These large trucks with multiple trailers make the truck and trailer more prone to rollover. Careless or unscrupulous truckers or companies will often neglect or skip routine maintenance and fail to replace brakes or other equipment, making it only a matter of time before something will break or malfunction, sometimes at highway speed. Finally, the drivers of these trucks could violate federal regulations and drive beyond the allowable daily limits. A common practice to fight off fatigue is the use of stimulants. If you or a loved one has been injured in an 18 wheeler accident, it may be that the driver of the truck was negligent and a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you pursue damages.
