According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, there is a higher volume of large trucks on the nation’s highways now than ever before. With an increased volume of traffic, there are more large truck accidents, killing thousands of victims and injuring tens of thousands every year. In 2024, the FMCSA reports that 4,025 fatal crashes involving large trucks occurred, resulting in the deaths of 4,679 people. Another 92,000 trucks were involved in injury crashes, resulting in injuries to 124,000 people. In Florida, 262 people were killed in truck accidents in 2024 alone.

  2. Automobile speeding: Cars driving above the speed limit, contributing to the crash.

  3. Distracted driving: Activities such as texting, eating, or using a GPS while driving.

  4. Improper securement of truck loads: Failing to properly secure cargo, leading to load shifts and accidents.

  5. Drugs and alcohol: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

  6. Failure to obey traffic control signals: Ignoring stop signs, red lights, and other traffic signals.

  7. Poorly maintained equipment: Not performing regular maintenance on the truck, resulting in mechanical failures.

  8. Defective truck parts: Using faulty or worn-out parts, leading to accidents.

Florida Negligence in
TRUCK Accident Cases

Negligence refers to the failure to exercise reasonable care, which results in harm to another person. In the context of truck accidents, negligence means that a truck driver or trucking company did not act with the level of caution that a reasonable person would have under similar circumstances.

To prevail in a Florida truck crash negligence claim, plaintiffs must prove the following elements:

  1. Duty of Care: The defendant (truck driver or trucking company) owed the victim a duty of care to exercise reasonable care and caution.

  2. Breach of Duty: The defendant violated the duty of care.

  3. Causation: The breach of the duty of care caused the accident and the plaintiff’s injuries.

  4. Damages: The plaintiff suffered injurious and financial harm as a result.

The semi-truck accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Carolina Nunez, P.A. may analyze your losses and provide you with an estimated range of values within which any settlement offer should fall. This can help you to evaluate any offers that are extended to you so that you can make a better-informed decision. While your Florida accident attorney may work hard to help you to secure a fair settlement, it is sometimes difficult to reach an agreement through negotiations. If that happens, the personal injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Carolina Nunez, P.A. may litigate aggressively on your behalf against the negligent driver up to and through a jury trial. If you prevail at a trial, the jury will determine the amount of damages to award in each category of your economic and noneconomic losses.
