How to avoid catastrophic truck accidents on your commute

During rush hour there, may be hundreds of cars around you, all desperate to get home after a long work day. You have enough to worry about with them, but perhaps even more important than other cars are the large trucks that share the road with you.

How the government shutdown can reduce community safety

The partial government shutdown has been going on for nearly a month--the longest shutdown in U.S. history. More than 800,000 federal employees have been furloughed or are being forced to work without pay. But this crisis also has a ripple effect, which impacts not just these workers--but society as a whole.

Why might I want to mediate if I get hurt in a truck accident?

After a serious truck accident, a West Palm Beach, Florida, victim may find that he or she is simply not getting anywhere with the insurance company of the truck driver or trucking firm, even if it is pretty clear that the truck driver is responsible for the accident.

Truck jackknifes should be preventable

As is the case with other parts of the country, West Palm Beach has lots of large trucks coming and going on its highways and other roads. While these vehicles and their drivers are doing the important work of hauling the products and other goods that the local economy needs to keep churning, large trucks also present risks to the other vehicles with which they share the road.

What are the hours of service rules for truckers?

In Florida, large trucks are commonplace on the roadways. Motorists are used to sharing the roads with these massive vehicle used to transport goods to destinations near and far. This does not mean there are no risks and dangers associated with traveling near tractor-trailer trucks and semi-trucks. An overworked or fatigued truck driver is extremely dangerous and could be the cause of a serious truck crash.

When driving a truck, small mistakes can have major consequences

Every driver has made a mistake behind the wheel, whether it is accidently running through a stop sign or driving too fast on the interstate. Oftentimes, these mistakes result in little more than a scare or moment of panic. However, there are times when even a small mistake has catastrophic consequences.

Truck accident kills 2, injures 1

Victims of truck accidents and their families are protected by the legal system. Two Florida residents were recently killed in semi-truck crash in another state. The fatal truck accident resulted in the deaths of two Florida residents and injured four others. The accident occurred when a semi-truck and a passenger vehicle were slowing in a construction zone. Another semi-truck behind the passenger vehicle failed to slow or come to a stop and crashed into the passenger vehicle from behind it. When the semi-truck struck the passenger vehicle from behind, it also caused it to strike the other semi-truck in front of it.
