What You Should Know About FL Truck Accidents - Spivey LawWhen more deliveries are made and more large trucks are on our roadways, accidents happen more frequently. These accidents may occur because of:

Driver Negligence: A common cause of truck accidents is driver negligence. Drivers may work long hours, may fail to account for blind spots when turning or changing lanes, speed, and/or be driving under the influence.

Trucking Company Negligence: Trucking companies are responsible for driver employment. Drivers must be certified and fully qualified before driving on our nation’s roads. Trucking companies are also responsible for vehicle maintenance to ensure their fleets are safe for the roads. Trucking company employees load trucks. If the cargo is improperly loaded, load shifting can cause an accident.
