Truck accidents in Hollywood and across South Florida are a key concern for truck drivers who work long hours to get cargo to businesses and customers. Truck drivers have a high risk of on-the-job injuries and of traffic accidents because they spend so much time on the road. Even though they have more training than passenger car drivers, inclement weather, grueling schedules, human error, and the mistakes of other drivers put them at risk of injuries.
Truckers have made big changes over the years to reduce the risk of truck accidents. They have advocated for better and safer working conditions and changes to the industry to make the job safer. They have also fought back against lax training requirements.
