The Miami Truck Accident Personal Injury Lawyers at The Perazzo Law Firm, with offices in Miami and North Miami Beach, provide dedicated and professional legal representation to clients who have suffered personal injury, damage, loss, or wrongful death due to accidents involving various types of trucks and tractor-trailers in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Our Miami Personal Injury lawyers assist accident victims in understanding the legal and financial implications that follow a trucking accident in Miami. These accidents, even at low speeds, can result in severe personal injuries such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, bone fractures, or other injuries requiring ongoing medical treatment. Given that big-rigs, tractor-trailers, and semi-trucks can weigh up to thirty times more than an average car, their operation demands extra care and diligence. While excessive driving speeds are a common cause of most truck accidents, various factors can contribute to these incidents.


  • Drowsy Drivers
  • Inexperienced Operators
  • Intoxication
  • Poor Vehicle Condition
  • Excessive Cargo
  • Road-Rage
  • Poor Road conditions
  • Bad Weather
  • Third Party Negligence
  • Cell Phone Use while driving

Recent reports show that of the approximately 500,000 reported crashes involving large trucks in the US, some 4,000 were fatal, with close to 105,000 resulting in personal injury. It is worth noting that fatal accidents that involve trucks most often take-place in rural areas and on interstate highways. This being said, the Miami-based Perazzo Law Firm suggests extra precaution when operating a motor vehicle on highways or rural areas. Pedestrians and bicycle riders should also be extra careful when they detect the presence or approaching of a large truck or vehicle. Semis, Big Rigs, 18 wheeler trucks, and tractor-trailers comprise 13% of the 15.5 million truck operating on U.S. roads, with at least one fatality per semi accident.


  • Averitt
  • Con-way
  • DHL
  • FedEx
  • J.B. Hunt
  • Werner
  • Swift
  • UPS
  • U.S. Express

The trucking companies listed above operate extensive fleets and are legally obligated to submit safety records to the Federal Motor Carrier Administration (FMCSA), a division of the Department of Transportation. These reports must include detailed breakdowns of accidents, injuries, fatalities, as well as the company's essential information and the cargo they transport. Annually, this data is made public by the FMCSA as a mandatory disclosure.

It's worth noting that the average cost of a commercial trucking accident is estimated to be around $60,000, and a staggering 90% of these accidents are attributed to human error, whether it be on the part of the truck driver, other motorists, cyclists, or pedestrians. Regrettably, a significant 30% of all commercial truck accidents are caused by fatigued drivers. Below, you'll find a comprehensive list of major carriers along with information pertaining to accidents, injuries, and fatalities on U.S. roadways since 2016.

The combined total of accidents, injuries, and fatalities resulting from trucking accidents involving major carriers on American highways and interstates amounted to 100,368 accidents, 3,476 injuries, and 298 fatalities.

While these statistics represent the largest commercial trucking operators in the USA, it's essential to acknowledge that there are numerous small and privately-owned commercial trucking companies operating on U.S. roads.
