Unsecured Cargo on Commercial Trucks Can Cause Serious Accidents

Unsecured Cargo Can Do Serious Damage

If cargo is not properly loaded on a commercial truck it can become loose, falling off a truck and causing an accident. Such accidents can result in considerable medical expenses and life-changing circumstances which can include temporary or permanent disabilities, making it difficult to earn a living. If you or a loved one was harmed in such an accident, reach out to our truck accident lawyer who can determine if you are eligible for financial compensation in an injury suit.

Common items or materials which can come loose while on the highway include:

  • Metal coils
  • Concrete pipes and cylinders
  • Large boulders
  • Lumber and logs carried by semi-trucks or tractors
  • Intermodal containers

Products and debris that flies off a truck hit strike other vehicles directly or cause a traffic obstacle that other drivers have to swerve to avoid hitting. Either scenario can cause serious injuries to other motorists.

Cargo may become unsecured for any number of reasons. A bungee cord, fastener, anchor, tied down strap, or other device can fail or become defective for some reason. Our truck accident attorney can investigate whether these mechanisms were defective by employing experts to testify as to their integrity.
