Hollywood Truck Accident Lawyers

Dedicated Personal Injury Lawyers Committed to Getting Just Compensation for Broward County Truck Accident Victims

While technology is evolving and improving every day, in many ways large commercial trucks have remained relatively unchanged over the years. The fact is, transporting large amounts of cargo from one place to another is expensive and time-consuming, and trucking companies have a strong motivation to cut corners wherever possible in order to maximize profits. Because of this, many semis, tractor-trailers and other commercial transport trucks continue to pose a significant danger to other drivers on the roadways when they are involved in an accident. When the truck driver’s negligence or trucking companies thoughtless actions caused the accident, you need skilled Hollywood truck accident lawyers to help you recover fair compensation for the damage that those actions produced.

To say that trucks are big is an incredible understatement—commercial trucks dwarf traditional cars, SUVs and other motor vehicles that everyday Hollywood residents drive on the Florida roads, and most of us have experienced situations where these large trucks speed by on the I-95 with what looks like little regard for the safety of others. In reality, truck drivers are required to undergo extensive training in order to obtain the license necessary to operate such a large vehicle. Despite this, truck accidents happen frequently in Hollywood and throughout South Florida, causing potentially devastating injuries and even fatalities.

Frequently Asked Questions About Truck Accidents in Hollywood, Florida

I’ve read that truck driver fatigue is a leading cause of truck accidents. Don’t federal and state regulations prohibit truck drivers from working too much and causing truck accidents?

Yes. Regulations provide that truck drivers must be given a specific amount of time off between shifts—10 hours off for every 11 hours that the truck driver drives, and that the truck driver must take a 30-minute break after every eight hours of driving. These rules do not seem to have substantially alleviated the pressures faced by truck drivers. In fact, we have seen that many truck drivers disobey the rules and take much shorter breaks in an effort to meet unreasonable deadlines and get their cargo to its destination in a shorter period of time. This results in truck drivers who are exhausted behind the wheel, and other truck drivers who use drugs to stay awake. Lack of proper breaks can also result in driver distraction, which is also a leading cause of truck accidents in Florida.

How long do I have to decide whether to file a claim for compensation?

Technically, you have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit in Florida unless the truck accident involved a fatality, in which case you have two years. Despite this, if you were injured in a Hollywood truck accident, contact us as soon as possible so that we can make sure we have access to the strongest possible evidence to support your claim—remembering that evidence tends to disappear over time and that the trucking companies are only legally required to maintain certain pieces of evidence for a relatively short period of time.
