Tampa Truck Accident Attorneys
Driver negligence is the most common cause of truck accidents in the United States. In fact, a new report issued by the Federal Motor Carrier’s Safety Administration (FMCSA), found that driver error is ten times more likely to cause a serious truck accident than any other factor including weather, road conditions and vehicle performance.
Factors such as the use of over-the-counter and prescription drugs, speeding, inattention, distractions, work environment and road unfamiliarity can all contribute to driver error. However, sleep deprivation and driver fatigue are by far the most common causes of truck accidents.

Florida Truck Accident Laws
Federal law governs interstate commerce between Florida and other states. Found at Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, these laws impose specific operational requirements for trucking companies, drivers and owners. Additional regulation of the commercial trucking industry is also enforced by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
At the Fernandez Firm, our experienced lawyers know that responsibility for serious Florida truck accidents often comes down to whether or not the commercial trucking company complied with all state and federal laws designed to protect the public.
