Accidents Caused By Improperly Loaded Trucks
Loading procedure is a critical aspect of trucking safety. This process requires training, competence and a full understanding of the mechanics of a truck. If someone is not properly trained and does not load cargo in the right way, the loads can rapidly shift or fall. When the truck is moving at high speeds, this can cause jackknifing, rollovers and other catastrophic accidents. Needless to say, these issues can be extremely injurious and fatal to all drivers on the road.
At Johnstone & Gabhart, LLP, our attorneys handle a range of trucking accident claims. We are prepared to work on cases involving falling loads, improper or infrequent load checking, large and unsecured equipment, including construction vehicles and log skidders or improper or defective tie-downs.
We will bring our expertise to investigate accident scenes, review police reports, consult with loading experts, and look into the trucking company and driver’s history to build the strongest possible case.
