After any truck accident, it is important to investigate all of the potential causes of that crash. One factor to consider is whether the crash was caused by overloading the truck or failing to properly secure or balance the load. Overloading or improperly loading a truck can cause that vehicle to jackknife, roll over or drop debris on the roadway, potentially resulting in serious injuries to other drivers, passengers and pedestrians on the road.

Experienced Truck Accident Attorneys Protecting Your Best Interests
Our firm uses our skills and resources to investigate the accident scene quickly and thoroughly. We will look to see if the semi-truck that hit you was overloaded and in violation of federal or state regulations.
Improper or excessive loading may have led to brake failure, tire blowouts, steering problems or other loss of control of the truck. The failure to secure, inspect or test a trailer that later breaks away or drops debris on the road may result in a devastating accident for the driver of a car or motorcycle.
Truck overloading is often done as the result of a trucking company's emphasis on profits over safety, or as the result of pure carelessness. In either case, our firm will hold the driver and/or company accountable for their negligence and recover the compensation you need.
