Trucks are a reality of life in the United States. They deliver supplies locally, regionally and nationally, stopping in Pompano Beach or traveling through the community. They haul everything from food products to household furniture to heavy machinery, and are a constant on America's roadways.

Lawyers familiar with truck accidents know that any number of issues can contribute to crashes.
Truck drivers are professional drivers, but driver error is responsible for a large number of traffic accidents involving trucks. Like other drivers, truck drivers can suffer from fatigue or engage in distracting behavior like texting, reading or talking on the phone, which can divert their attention. Rules against excessive driving hours have increased safety, but with most truck drivers working over 60 hours a week, physical and mental fatigue is a serious problem.
Truck drivers and trucking companies rely on their vehicles for their livelihood. However, deadlines can mean negligence in terms of maintenance or repair as a company hurries to get that vehicle back on the road. Likewise, trailers that are unbalanced or improperly loaded are difficult to drive and can cause an accident.
Poorly maintained roads can also contribute to truck accidents.Damages from Truck Accidents
