Fort Lauderdale Semi Accident Attorney

Truck Accidents & Injuries in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Fleets of semi-trucks run up and down the through the Fort Lauderdale area day and night, carrying thousands of tons of freight and cargo to all corners of our state. The drivers of these trucks are commonly subject to strict deadlines and heavy pressure from their employers to make deliveries on schedule. This leads to tragedy and catastrophic injury in many cases for innocent drivers and their passengers. Semi-trucks weigh upwards of 20 times more than the average passenger vehicle and in a collision the semi-truck usually causes extensive damage. Due to this enormous weight, semi-trucks traveling at highway speeds take much longer to come to a full stop.

Many deadly accidents are caused by worn brakes or other equipment improperly maintained that drastically reduce the ability of the driver to respond to an emergency. Often the reflexes of the driver are either dulled by driving longer than the legal limits in federal regulations, or they are unsafe behind the wheel due to the use of strong drugs or alcohol. Accidents frequently result in paralysis, spinal cord injuries, brain damage and death, in addition to causing emotional suffering of the victims and their families. If the driver of the semi was at fault for your injury, you can get the help of a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney in seeking damages that will make it possible to pay your medical bills and compensate for lost wages.
