Large commercial vehicles may be required to carry heavy and sometimes hazardous loads. The way these loads are balanced and secured may have a serious impact on how well the truck driver can operate the vehicle. An unbalanced load may cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle. An improperly secured load may actually become detached from the vehicle while in transit, colliding with other vehicles and causing catastrophic accidents and injuries.
Were you injured in a truck accident that involved an unsecured load? An aggressive attorney at our law office can talk to you about your options in holding the truck driver or trucking company accountable for their negligence. In handling personal injury and wrongful death claims related to commercial trucking accidents, our team is committed to putting our clients' needs first while aggressively pursuing the full financial compensation to which they may be entitled. We can handle cases that involve:
- Rocks or debris flying from an overloaded truck or improperly secured load
- Unsecured loads on flatbed trucks
- Trailer doors becoming unhitched during transit
- Part or all of a tractor-trailer's cargo falling from the vehicle while on the roadway
The cargo being transported by a commercial truck may include heavy objects such as lumber, piping, gravel or even heavy machinery or cars. Any debris or cargo, large or small, may cause serious damage to another vehicle or may cause a serious collision.
