Several people in Florida with truck accident injuries

If a Florida driver loses control of steering or becomes distracted and drifts out of a travel lane, disaster can strike quickly. If there are other vehicles or pedestrians nearby, the risk of an accident increases. A 62-year-old tow truck driver recently struck a parked construction vehicle. Truck accident injuries are often severe, and those involved in collisions often face financial distress because of medical bills or lost pay from time off work during recovery.

The crash occurred at approximately 3:30 a.m. on a recent Tuesday. The construction vehicle was parked on the side of the road, just beyond a sign marking off the construction site. Although no details were provided as to the exact reasons for what happened next, the tow truck driver lost control of his vehicle, which then struck the back end of the other vehicle.

There were two occupants in the construction vehicle, the 49-year-old driver and a 25-year-old passenger. Both of them were injured. The tow truck driver also suffered minor injuries.

If a Florida motorist is involved in a collision, it is always best to seek immediate medical attention, even if the person in question believes his or her truck accident injuries are minor. Not all injuries are immediately apparent. Also, obtaining medical attention creates written documentation of a collision, which can come in handy down the line if a recovering victim seeks financial recovery for losses in civil court. This type of litigation is based upon evidence of negligence that is alleged to have been a causal factor in a particular incident.
