Truck Accident Lawyer
An overloaded truck can increase braking distance considerably, making a truck driver unable to stop in time to avoid an accident. An unsecured load can leave hazardous obstacles on the roadway, or cause the truck to corner unsafely, creating a roadway hazard.
Because of the dangers of overloaded trucks and unsecured loads, truck drivers and trucking companies are required by law to ensure their loads are under prescribed limits, and that their loads are safely balanced. In some cases, truck drivers must take alternate routes if their trucks are too heavy to pass over a bridge or too high to pass under one. Wide loads must be visibly marked.
Our lawyers have extensive experience handling truck accident cases, and a proven record of success obtaining results for injury victims and those who have lost loved ones in fatal truck accidents. If you or someone close to you was injured due to an overloaded truck or unsecured load, we are here to protect your rights.
