We Hold Trucking Companies Liable For Injuries


Although commercial trucks are built to haul large or heavy loads, any failure in the cargo securement process can cause deadly accidents. Tractor-trailers are prone to tipping over if a load shifts during transport. Improperly loaded trucks are more difficult to control, especially when traveling at high speeds.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations include truck weight limits and proper means of securing cargo. We will investigate to determine who is liable for the problem that caused your accident. For example, the cargo shipper is responsible for securing the load, while the driver is responsible for inspecting it.

Improperly secured cargo can cause numerous problems. The weight must be correctly distributed, or the truck risks tipping over. Unsecured cargo can cause tractor-trailers to tip over. It can also fall off of flatbed trucks, striking other vehicles or creating road hazards.

Like all trucking accidents, these types of accidents typically cause catastrophic or fatal injuries such as burns, fractures, amputations, brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries. We seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. You may also receive compensation for funeral expenses and the personal loss of a loved one in wrongful death cases.
