In Miami, accidents involving trucks can occur on city or suburban streets every time a truck has to turn or make a sudden stop. Trucks are big, hard to handle vehicles that most city streets are not designed for; especially when trucks may need to make it through a tight squeeze or when a right or left hand turn is involved. Moving vehicles are not alone when it comes to damages from a truck in motion, as sometimes, parked cars can be on the receiving end of damages from an incident involving a truck trying to turn on a narrow city street corner. Truck accidents involving pedestrians, motor cycle or bike riders are also quite common. Sadly, the results of a truck accident that involves a pedestrian or bike rider can result in serious, if not fatal injuries.

Many times, the truck drivers rely on GPS or mobile services to help guide them through city and suburban streets. When this happens, there could be distraction while behind the wheel. Distracted drivers can cause accidents which can lead to personal injury to innocent third parties.

Most trucking companies, especially if the trucking company has a fleet of vehicles, will carry BI or Comprehensive insurance that is stacked (SEE Stacked Insurance Coverage). This means that they will cover medical expenses and losses stemming for the truck accident.

The number of possible truck accident scenarios are endless, as human error and motor vehicles move about side-by-side throughout Miami avenues, streets and Suburban roads.
