Large commercial trucks are a regular sight on highways in Florida. Unfortunately, Florida also has one of the highest incidence rates of commercial truck accidents1 in the United States. When an 80,000-pound truck crashes into a small passenger vehicle, the results can be catastrophic for motorists. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), about 111,000 people were injured in accidents that involved a large commercial vehicle in a single year in the U.S and an additional 3,903 did not survive.
