Trucks Have Limited Capabilities
While semi-trucks are built to carry massive loads, they do have limitations. Too much weight can impact the vehicles ability to stop and to take turns properly. Immediate investigation is critical in these cases because we need to be able to assess whether a truck has been overloaded before the evidence is removed. If we determine that a truck was overloaded, either intentionally or because of the truck company’s or truck driver’s negligence, that will be strong evidence that we will use to further your claim.
Accidents Caused By Unsecured Loads
An overloaded truck is dangerous for many reasons. If that load is also not properly secured, it can be even more dangerous. Our lawyers are able to handle cases involving loads that have fallen off or out of trucks. If your case involves being hit by a load falling off or out of a truck, or if it involves an accident caused by having to swerve to avoid a falling load, we can take your case and help you get compensation.
