Common Florida Truck Accident Causes
Negligence of trucking companies and drivers
An 18-wheeler barreling down a Florida highway is a common sight. As a vital element of commerce, commercial trucks carry loads of products cross-country on strict deadlines imposed by suppliers, vendors and consumers. A late delivery costs money and reduces the profits of large corporations. The pressure to deliver a load on time puts other drivers at grave risk of injury — a fact that the individuals who stand to benefit from the commercial transactions tend to ignore.
Viles & Beckman, LLC was established in Fort Myers in 1995 to advocate for automobile drivers who have been injured on Florida’s roadways and to help families whose loved ones have died in these tragic accidents. We hold the negligent parties responsible for your injuries or the loss of your loved one and we pursue the maximum possible damages.
