Florida truck drivers have the most deadly job in the state, according to the Blog SDN website. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 2,234 transportation-related deaths occurred in the U.S. in 2007, but the actual number of fatalities in the transportation industry is likely even higher considering how many of the injured in truck accidents later die from crash-related injuries. Even when U.S. and Florida truck accident injuries do not lead to fatality, victims of truck accidents in Broward County and surrounding areas of the state often suffer debilitating injuries that affect their daily lives forever. Not only do many Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach, and Miami truck accident victims suffer life-altering injuries, but they often face financial challenges due to the high cost of medical bills and lost income from required time away from work.
If you have been injured in a Dade, Palm Beach, or Broward County truck accident, you may be wondering how you will pay for your medical bills, prescriptions, and other expenses related to your injury or accident. As long as the Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, or Palm Beach truck accident was the fault of another party and directly resulted in your injuries, you may be able to file a Florida truck accident claim for financial compensation.
