Was The Truck Overloaded Or Was The Load Not Secured?
Unsafe truck cargo and unsecured loads are responsible for many serious accidents. If you have been injured or if your loved one was killed in a truck accident in Connecticut, our lawyers can initiate an investigation to determine the true cause of the crash.
Overweight trucks and poorly secured cargo may indicate negligence on the part of one or more of the following:
- Loading dock personnel
- Inspectors at weighing stations
- Truck drivers who fail to weigh loaded trucks or falsify numbers
- Truck drivers who fail to properly secure loads or confirm integrity of straps or other methods of securing cargo completed by other people
Poor distribution of the weight of cargo can cause instability of trucks traveling at high speeds. On open flat-bed trailers of trucks on highways, unsecured cargo can fly off and strike automobiles. The consequences can be catastrophic. A detailed investigation can uncover this factor after a truck accident.
