The Miami Truck Accident Personal Injury Lawyers at The Perazzo Law Firm's Miami and North Miami Beach offices provide fully-dedicated and professional legal representation to trucking accident related clients that have suffered personal injury, damage, loss, or wrongful death from accidents that involve any type of truck or tractor-trailers in Miami-Dade or Broward Counties. Our Miami Personal Injury lawyers serve trucking accident claims for compensation while helping accident victims to  understand the legal and financial implications following the devastation of a trucking accident. Even at slow speeds, the impact from a large motor-vehicle can cause serious personal injuries such as: Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, bone fractures or other injuries that may require permanent medical treatment. The operation of these vehicles requires greater care and diligence since big-rigs, tractor-trailers, and semi-trucks can weigh up to thirty times more than an average car. Though most truck accidents are often the result of excessive driving speeds, there are a number of reasons for Trucking Accidents. 

MAIN CAUSES FOR TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

  • Drowsy Drivers
  • Inexperienced operators
  • Intoxication 
  • Poor vehicle condition
  • Excessive cargo
  • Road-rage
  • Poor Road conditions 
  • Bad weather
  • Third Party Negligence
  • Cell Phone use

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 wheelers, and tractor-trailers comprise 13% of the 15.5 million truck operating on U.S. roads, with at least one fatality per semi accident.  

THE MAIN COMMERCIAL TRUCKING COMPANIES OPERATING ON U.S. ROADS

  • Averitt
  • Con-way
  • DHL
  • FedEx
  • J.B. Hunt
  • Werner
  • Swift
  • UPS
  • U.S. Express
The trucking companies listed above possess large fleets and all carriers are bound by law to provide safety records to the Federal Motor Carrier Administration, which operates under the Department of Transportation. The report must include a periodic breakdown of accidents, injuries, fatalities, as well as the company's basic information and cargo being hauled. This information is annually made public by the FMCSA and mandatory. The average cost of a commercial trucking accident is estimated at $60,000 with 90% of accidents due to human error, either by the truck driver, other motorists, cyclists or pedestrians. Sadly, 30% of all commercial truck accidents are the result of fatigued drivers. Below is a list of the main carriers and information regarding accidents, injuries, and fatalities on U.S. roadways since 2016.

Carrier #Accidents #Injured  #Fatalities
Averitt     425          150       49
