Going The Extra Miles

Melbourne Truck Accident Attorneys | Semi Truck Accident Lawyer Brad Sinclair Serving all of Brevard County, Florida including Melbourne, Palm Bay, Rockledge, Cocoa, Cape Canaveral and Titusville.

Accidents involving tractor trailers often result in more serious injuries than an accident involving two cars. Truck accidents are extrememely costly to both trucking companies and their insurance companies and they will both work hard to secure information in their favor at the scene of an accident.

Understanding the mechanics of a trucking accident and hiring the right “expert witnesses” can make or break your case. You need an experienced semi truck accident lawyer familiar with the unique nature of truck accidents to represent you and defend your rights.

Trucking companies use GPS technology to closely track the location and speed of their trucks. This information is extremely important and Sinclair Law Offices understands this, working swiftly to obtain, interpret and use this data when defending your rights after a trucking accident.

Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. Of these, approximately 5,000 result in fatalities. Most of the deaths and injuries involve the passengers of vehicles while the drivers of the tractor-trailers usually escape truck-vehicle collisions with little or no personal injury. Due to the large size of trucks, when a semi truck operator fails to consider proper safety precautions, an accident can greatly endanger the lives of people in smaller vehicles.

Easily Preventable Causes of Truck Accidents:
  • Overloaded Trucks or Trailers
  • Unlicensed Driver
  • Speeding
  • Disobeying Safety Procedure
  • Motor Vehicle Inspection Failure
  • Repair & Maintenance Failure
  • Failure to Yield The Right of Way
  • DUI / DWI
  • Driver Fatique
  • Truck Rollover
  • Backing Up/Moving In Reverse
  • Vehicle Collisions
  • Mechanical or Brake Failure
  • Tire Failure
  • Transporting Equipment with Trailers
  • Loads That Shift Weight

Any of these situations unnecessarily endanger the lives of everyone eles sharing the road with these large trucks. All of these circumstances are easily preventable with the proper precautions and regulations that are already in place
