Ruskin Trucking Accident Attorney

Each year there are approximately 450,000 accidents that occur between tractor-trailers and other vehicles, with 90% of these accidents resulting in at least one fatality.  Florida ranked as one of the top three states in the United States for the greatest number of truck accidents over a four-year period. But what makes a tractor-trailer so dangerous?  Here a just a couple of reasons:

  • Tractor-trailers are longer and heavier, making them much more difficult to maneuver and handle;
  • Tractor-trailers have much larger blind spots;
  • It takes much longer for a tractor-trailer to stop and/or slow down;
  • Poor Maintenance – tractor-trailers are subject to heavy usage;
  • Tractor-trailer drivers are more likely to suffer driver fatigue; and
  • Accidents involving tractor-trailers are much more serious, and often catastrophic
