With more than 18 million residents and growing, Florida is one of the largest states in the country. This large population naturally has a huge demand for products carried by commercial trucks. Tractor trailers, big rigs, and tankers clog Florida highways, transporting goods alongside passenger cars.

Commercial truck accident cases are complicated, especially for the victims involved in the accident. Some truck accident causes are:
- Aggressive, fatigued truckers working long shifts under deadline pressure
- Poor inspections of commercial trucks
- Limited visibility, breaking, turning, and acceleration of commercial trucks
- The 80,000-pound weight of a commercial truck versus a passenger car weighing under 3,000 pounds
