Florida truch Accidents
Although semi-trucks account for only 2 percent of all the vehicles on the road, they are the cause of 8 percent of all road accidents. This demonstrates that semi-trucks and tractor-trailers can cause accidents with devastating consequences for those involved. It is the size mismatch of these vehicles – a fully loaded truck can weigh over 80,000 pounds, a behemoth when compared to an average car that weighs 3,000 pounds – that causes the accidents to occur. Aronfeld Trial Lawyers handles a diverse range of catastrophic injures and wrongful death claims that result from trucking accidents involving 18-wheelers and collisions with other commercial vehicles. Our firm has the ability and experience to launch comprehensive traffic accident investigations by utilizing a team that includes private detectives, former police and highway patrol officers, accident reconstruction experts, and biomechanical engineers. Our team of professionals can quickly amass the facts, evidence and proof needed to establish liability, and maximize the recovery for our clients.

Our Miami car accident law firm recommends that everybody, whether driving or riding as a passenger, always wear a seatbelt, regardless of the length of the drive. It can be a critical mistake to think there is no need to wear a seatbelt, even just for driving around the corner. Studies have proved that a person has a 400% greater chance of surviving an accident if properly seatbelted. Florida Statute S316.614 details the rules regarding the use of safety belts. Florida law requires that anyone driving a car, pickup truck, truck, or van on a Florida road must wear a seatbelt. This law applies to front-seat passengers as well. Failure to wear a seatbelt is considered a non-moving violation and is punishable by a $30.00 fine plus $6.00 in court costs. If the driver is under 18 years of age, each passenger must wear a seatbelt whenever the car, truck, pickup truck, or van is moving. Children under age three must be restrained by a federally-approved child car seat. Children ages four to five must be secured by either a car seat or a safety belt. It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure that the child is buckled properly. Failure to buckle a child will cost the driver a minimum of $60.00 plus $10.00 in court costs.
