Were You Injured in a Truck Accident Due to Unsecure Cargo?

Truck accidents are extremely common across the nation, and for many reasons. In addition to the sheer size and weight of semi-trucks, any type of collision involving an 18-wheeler commercial vehicle with a small car or compact truck could prove to be fatal.

In order to cut down on truck-related accidents, however, the federal government has partnered with state and local law makers to create strict regulations that govern the trucking industry. Commercial drivers as well as the trucking companies that employ them are all held to high safety standards to ensure the security of public roads and highways.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case. If your truck accident has been caused by a truck driver's failure to properly secure cargo, cargo overload, or any other form of negligence, you must contact Abrahams Law today. I, Attorney Jon Abraham, know how to help you pursue your full damages.

Causes of Unsecure Cargo Truck Accidents

Many truck accidents are caused by cargo that has been insecurely loaded or overloaded to the truck. Truck drivers are required to check cargo before taking to the road and are held to strict federal regulations regarding the stacking, loading, or balancing of freight within the truck load.

Common causes of incorrectly secured accidents include:

  • Cargo overloading leading to tipping or rolling
  • Cargo falling off the truck and onto the roads
  • Jackknifing due to inhibited truck braking or turning
  • Hazardous material or toxic exposure

Commercial semi-trucks are already large in size and the overall weight of the commercial truck can greatly increase when cargo has been added. Heavy loads, along with wide turning radiuses and slow braking systems all combine to create major truck and car accidents.
