Cement trucks are essential for construction and road work projects, but there’s a lot of pressure on these vehicles. Drivers of cement trucks usually have to get to their destinations quickly, because there are crews waiting for them. Cement is also very heavy, with fully loaded trucks weighing in at 33 tons, on average. That’s a lot of potential force if these vehicles are in a collision.

Many drivers use light trucks to transport larger purchases or just to enjoy more room. Light trucks are currently popular in Hollywood and southern Florida as well as other parts of the country. Many drivers like being higher off the ground in these larger vehicles and feel safer with the added space and protection this type of truck offers. While these vehicles can be quite safe for drivers, however, they do pose a larger risk in some instances.


Light trucks, such as pickup trucks, can be heavily loaded down with cargo. When cargo is not properly secured, it can fly out the back of a truck, causing obstructions on the roads and secondary accidents. In addition, light trucks can be overburdened with heavy cargo, which can affect the performance of tires or can cause a driver to lose control, leading to accidents.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
