Overloaded Trucks, Unsecured Loads And Injuries They Cause
While it might not immediately spring to mind as a significant cause of accidents, improper truck loading is incredibly dangerous. The reason is simple — if heavy cargo shifts at a high speed, it can send a truck careening out of control. As such, proper loading requires training and a comprehensive understanding of how trucks run.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of what you believe may be an improperly loaded truck, it is important that you understand your rights and to what you may be compensated for healing and recovery.
