Assisting Trucking Accident Victims Since 1980
Due to their large size and weight, trucks can wreak havoc on our roads when involved in a collision. In fact, truck accidents are the largest cause of fatalities and serious injuries of all types of accidents that you may be involved in. Truck accidents have increased significantly in recent years, injuring thousands of people every year. Smaller cars simply don't stand a chance when they collide with semi-trucks.

We may be able to obtain the compensation you need to recover from such a traumatic experience. You don't have to face this alone.
Who can be held responsible for a truck accident?
Although truck drivers undergo training, many of them engage in distracting behaviors behind the wheel or fail to take the necessary rest stops as required by law. This blatant negligence results in fatigued driving and can cause truckers to cross into other lanes while driving. The results can be tragic, such as catastrophic injuries and even fatalities.
There are numerous ways that a truck driver or a trucking company can be found negligent in the event of an accident:
- Driver faked their hour log, leading to driver exhaustion
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Carrying improperly loaded or unsafe cargo
- Distracted driving
- Installing or failing to replace defective parts
When you work with the Melbourne team at Henderson & Futchko, P.A. you can be sure that our attorneys will aggressively investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident and hold all liable parties accountable. This can range from the driver of the truck to the company that employed the driver to the manufacturer or trucking parts.
