How Flatbed Truck Accidents Happen

An investigation might show that the flatbed truck accident that hurt you was caused by:

  • Improper loading: One of the most common causes of flatbed truck accidents is improper loading. If the cargo on the flatbed is not properly secured, tied down, or distributed, it can shift during transit and cause the truck to become unbalanced or overturn. Improper loading can also cause debris to fly off the truck, which can lead to collisions or other accidents.
  • Driver error: Flatbed truck accidents can also be caused by driver error, such as reckless driving, speeding, distracted driving, and driver fatigue. In some cases, someone with no truck driving experience is allowed to rent a flatbed truck for the day, and they don’t know how to handle it safely.
  • Equipment failure: Flatbed truck accidents can also be caused by equipment failures, such as brake failure or tire blowouts. If the flatbed truck has not been properly maintained or inspected, it can lead to equipment failure while on the road.

In a flatbed truck accident, severe injuries can occur, such as:

  • Whiplash and neck injuries

Florida Flatbed Truck Accident FAQ

  • What is the statute of limitations on a flatbed truck accident claim in Florida?
    Florida has a four-year statute of limitations on most flatbed truck accident claims. If you want to demand compensation from the liable driver, then you must file your claim before four years pass, starting on the date of the accident. An expired statute of limitations will most likely stop any claims you try to file after, so don’t risk it. Act now.
  • What damages can I pursue in a flatbed truck accident claim in Florida?
    The average flatbed truck accident claimant can seek both economic and non-economic damages from the defendant. Economic damage relates to lost wages, medical bills, and other tangible financial losses. Non-economic damage relates to pain, suffering, lost enjoyment of life, and other emotional and mental harm.
  • Does cargo need to be secured on a flatbed truck?
    Any cargo loaded onto the back of a flatbed truck should be secured appropriately, whether it is tethered, tied, bolted, or locked into place by other means. Flatbed truck drivers, whether they are using the truck for personal or professional reasons, are prohibited by Florida law and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FCMSA) from operating the flatbed in a way that would cause the cargo to come loose and fall into the road during transit.
