Top 5 Causes of Florida Trucking Accidents

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, trucking accidents have increased by 20 percent in the past 20 years. The fact is, while trucking is a multi-billing dollar industry, it also causes severe safety and health risks, as well as injuries and death to a large number of people throughout the U.S. When involved in a crash, trucks usually cause much more harm and damage than a traditional automobile accident. This is due to trucks being 20 times the weight and size of the majority of other vehicles on the road.

The Importance of Pictures after a Trucking Accident

It is an unfortunate, yet completely inevitable fact - accidents happen every day. Even if you are the most cautious driver on the road, always aware of how fast you are going, and following road safety rules, you may find yourself involved in a crash due to another person's carelessness.

A collision may be even worse and more severe if it involves a commercial truck. Due to the size, velocity, and weight of commercial trucks, an accident with a big rig can be terrifying. While contacting an Orlando truck accident attorney after the accident is important, you also need to take pictures of the scene. The fact is, truck accidents are overwhelming and traumatizing, therefore, remembering the details is often challenging.
