Miami Truck Accident Attorney

Truck drivers provide a valuable service, delivering the items we both want and need to our homes, as well as to local stores, restaurants, and businesses. Unfortunately, the increase in the variety of goods delivered from elsewhere has resulted in an increase in the number of semi-trucks and tractor-trailers on the road of Miami, putting both drivers and their passengers at a greater risk for truck accidents and injuries.

LMK Legal understands the devastating effects these types of injuries can have, preventing you or a loved one from working or even enjoying activities you previously engaged in with family and friends, while leaving you or a loved one with heavy medical debts. When these types of accidents do occur, LMK Legal is here to assist you in getting the compensation you deserve.

With increasing numbers of trucks on America’s roads, highways, and interstates, truck accidents and crashes have become unfortunately common. According to the latest statistics from Ryder, a leader in the commercial trucking industry, more than half a million large truck and commercial vehicle accidents occur in the United States each year, resulting in injuries and extensive damages to truck drivers themselves, as well as other drivers on the road. While some accidents can be attributed to poor weather or road conditions, the majority are due to dangerous driving behaviors and other situations that could have easily been prevented.

Common types of truck accidents include the following:

  • Accidents caused by negligence in truck maintenance, such as improperly inflated tires, worn brake systems, and shoddy repairs
  • Cargo-related accidents due to improper loading, excessive weight, and cargo shifting
  • Driver performance-related accidents, resulting from improperly trained drivers who are unaware of proper braking techniques and those who forget to check blind spots
  • Drowsy driving accidents, resulting from drivers trying to meet quotas who drive while fatigued or fall asleep behind the wheel
  • Reckless driving accidents, caused by drivers who fail to obey the rules of the road and engage in speeding, distracted driving, and other dangerous behaviors
  • Impaired driving accidents, caused by drivers who use drugs or alcohol behind the wheel

Due to the size and bulk and most commercial trucks, when these types of accidents do occur they often result in severe, potentially disabling, and often life threatening injuries to other motorists and their passengers.
