Florida truck accident had disastrous results

While every Florida driver must obey all traffic laws and safety regulations, unexpected circumstances may place a motorist in a position where he or she is unable to avoid a collision. A truck accident took place on a recent Wednesday that transformed what one man said was an otherwise uneventful trip into a disaster. He later said he had gripped the steering wheel as tightly as he could and braced himself because he thought a tractor-trailer was going to hit him.

The crash also involved several other vehicles. The man said he saw the truck coming at him from behind at full speed, then start to skid and spin. The man's vehicle was struck in what wound up being a chain reaction collision. The truck flew off the road and ended up on top of another vehicle.

Both vehicles were engulfed in flames and both drivers died. Others suffered injuries in the crash and were transported to area hospitals for treatment. Investigators believe a causal factor in the crash was the truck driver's failure to slow down when traffic patterns changed.

When a Florida truck accident results in injury, recovering victims often file personal injury claims in civil court. In cases where the party deemed responsible has died, a claim may still be filed against his or her estate. Accident-related injuries often spark financial problems when victims are unprepared to meet expenses associated with their injuries. Court-awarded compensation can be used to help pay medicals, replace lost wages and more.
