South Miami Stopping Distance

Have you seen car commercials showing passenger cars that are able to stop in the nick of time to avoid a collision? These ads emphasize how efficient the brakes on passenger cars may be, but when you share the road with big rigs, 18-wheelers and other large commercial trucks you will need to keep in mind that these large trucks have much larger stopping distances. They cannot stop on a dime and this means that in some cases when drivers or other parties are negligent this difference in braking ability can lead to serious traffic crashes in South Miami and other communities.

If you have been in a motor vehicle accident and your injuries were caused by the negligence of the trucking company or driver, you may have a legal claim.

Trucking Accidents in South Miami and Florida Lead to Devastating Injuries

One reason why you will want to get legal advice after any stopping distance collision is because these collisions can cause devastating and expensive injuries. Due to the size of trucks, a stopping distance collison can result in:

  • Fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Burns
  • Whiplash

These injuries are not only painful – and, in some cases, permanent – but they can affect every area of a person’s life. Someone who has suffered a brain injury or severe spinal cord trauma, for example, may not be able to care for their families or return to their job. They may need around-the-clock care as well as expensive treatments. Even with an injury such as a broken bone, where recovery is possible, the medical costs and time away from work can be difficult and expensive,

Since serious injuries can affect finances as well as other areas of life, it is important for trucking collision survivors to seek compensation for their injuries. If you have been injured, you may want to seek legal advice from a qualified personal injury lawyer, even if you have car insurance. An attorney can help you see how much compensation you may qualify for – and the best strategies for seeking that compensation.
