The operation of freight trucks in the State of Florida requires that the driver have a commercial driver's license and otherwise go through training to operate the type and size of the vehicle. It is important for these commercial truck drivers to operate the vehicles in a safe and reasonable manner. As part of the operation of these vehicles, it is vital that the drivers are well rested and free from alcohol and drugs. Furthermore, it is important for these drivers to limit distractions in the form of mobile phone or tablet use, reading, and any other actions that may take away from the primary task / responsibility at hand - namely the safe operation of the commercial truck.

In the State of Florida, there are No-Fault laws in place that apply to truck accidents and car accidents; however, the term "No-Fault" is quite misleading and often misunderstood by injury victims and their families. Let's be clear on this topic. If a truck driver is negligence, causes a crash, and you suffer personal injuries, you can and should pursue a case or claim for your personal injuries which can include damages for medical bills (past and future), pain, suffering, mental anguish, and the loss of enjoyment of life. The term "No-Fault" merely applies to how the medical bills are covered for treatment and the requirements of a permanent injury to quality for certain types of damages in the State of Florida.
