Truck Accidents

St. Petersburg Trucking and Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Thousands of serious accidents are caused by trucks in Florida each year, including Pinellas County. Because of the size of semis and tractor trailers, crashes involving these vehicles have the potential to cause catastrophic injury and even death.

The St. Petersburg truck accident attorneys at Whittel & Melton know that many trucking accidents could have been prevented, if only the vehicles involved were properly maintained or truck drivers abided by laws that cap the number of hours on the road each week , which limits fatigue and distraction.
