Fort Myers Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys
Trucking accidents can be devastating to other drivers who are involved in the crash. Tractor trailers, commercial trucks, and other large trucks are larger and heavier than most other vehicles on the road. As a result, a collision between a large truck and a smaller vehicle often causes greater injuries and damages to the occupants of the automobile. Unfortunately, such collisions are not uncommon.
In 2010, in the state of Florida alone, 3,329 accidents involved heavy trucks and another 2,964 accidents involved tractor-trailers, according to data from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. With 140 of those accidents proving fatal and 3,354 of them being injury accidents, it is evident that truck accidents change lives and often leave victims with significant losses, including severe injuries, permanent disabilities, and even deaths of loved ones. Add an impaired driver behind the wheel of a large truck or commercial vehicle and your Fort Myers drunk driving accident attorney knows that the consequences can be deadly for all parties involved. All too often, we see the aftermath of such accidents, and the devastation that such accidents can cause.
