Large commercial trucks often need to swing in the opposite direction when making wide turns. On some Miami city streets, which tend to be narrow, this can be an especial concern. A larger tractor trailer truck may turn wide to the left in order to make a right turn. Any smaller vehicle trapped between the curb on the left may be sideswiped or crushed. In many cases, the truck driver may not see anyone to the left or right - due to a truck's many blind spots - and may not be able to react in time to avert an accident. If you have been injured in a truck accident in Miami or anywhere in South Florida, it is important to keep in mind that you have rights. Even though you may be frightened, upset, and seriously hurt after your accident, there are laws in Florida designed to protect you. It is also important to keep in mind that you do not have to be alone.

Truck accidents in Miami are often devastating. Since these accidents often involve a much smaller passenger vehicle as well as a commercial truck, the victims in the smaller vehicle often face life-threatening or potentially fatal injuries. These can become wrongful death cases in Miami or very significant personal injury cases involving potentially large compensation packages. In a collision with a truck, a passenger vehicle and its occupants have little chance. The smaller vehicle may be crushed or seriously damaged, causing devastating injuries to the people inside. The more serious the injury, the more important it is to consult with a personal injury attorney in Miami to safeguard your rights. The total cost of a serious injury or a loss in the family can total millions of dollars, and insurance companies will usually aggressively fight to settle a claim as quickly and inexpensively as possible. Truck companies are protected by powerful insurance companies, so it becomes important for the injured party to secure an attorney to look out for their own interests.What to do After a Truck Accident
