Overloaded Trucks & Unsecured Loads
One of the most common causes of semitrailer accidents is trucks that have overloaded or unsecured loads. Federal regulations strictly limit the amount of weight a truck can carry and the way in which that weight is distributed. When trucking companies fail to follow these guidelines, innocent lives are put at risk.

Truck Accident Attorneys
In the pursuit of profit, trucking companies will sometimes try to overload their trucks with as much cargo as possible. Negligent trucking company practices such as this are dangerous and can result in serious personal injury accidents.
An overloaded truck:
- Makes it difficult for drivers to brake in time to avoid collisions
- Can cause the truck to roll over or jackknife
- Causes undue wear and tear on the mechanics of the truck, often making it unsafe for the road
- Can result in items spilling out of the truck, causing highway hazards
If you have been injured in a truck accident caused by an unbalanced or unsecured load, it is important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer standing up for your rights. Our attorneys know how to investigate truck accidents to determine who is at fault and how negligence contributed to the accident. We are prepared to help you obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other losses.
