Straddling Interstate 75, Pasco County sees its fair share of truck traffic coming and going at all hours of the day and night.

When they do occur, however, truck accidents have the potential to cause serious or deadly harm to the occupants of the passenger vehicles involved in the crash. There are many reasons why truck accidents occur, but by far most often they are caused by truck driver error or negligence on the part of the trucking company. When such truck accidents do occur, Dade City & Zephyrhills truck accident attorneys are here to help accident victims recover compensation for their injuries, even in the face of stiff resistance from the trucking industry and their insurance companies.

Common Causes and Types of Truck Accidents in Florida
Truckers are placed under high pressure to deliver their cargo according to a demanding schedule. This pressure may lead truckers to risk safety in order to reach their destination on time. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Fatigued driving
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Driving under the influence of stimulants
- Distracted driving
Other leading factors of truck accidents may be attributed to negligence on the part of the trucking company in failing to inspect and maintain a safe fleet of trucks. These causes include:
- Brake failures
- Tire blowouts
- Non-functioning signal lights
- Overloaded trailers
- Unbalanced loads
Truck accident cases frequently involve serious personal injury or wrongful death. Damages in these types of cases are generally significantly greater than in a typical car accident. Trucking company insurance carriers fight hard to avoid accepting responsibility and making the necessary payouts. At the Mander Law Group, we know what it takes to successfully pursue a trucking accident case. We understand the importance of conducting a thorough investigation of the accident as well as a thorough review of truck driver logs and trucking company records to determine whether truck and driver were in compliance with federal safety standards at the time of the crash.
