Items that are improperly secured on a flatbed trailer can become dangerous projectiles, striking other vehicles and causing catastrophic injury or death. Truck drivers are responsible for ensuring that all items are properly secured at the start of the day and at stops before they go back on the road.
An unbalanced load on a trailer can make the truck harder to maneuver, resulting in dangerous jackknife and rollover accidents.Overloaded Trucks
A truck that is hauling more than the legal weight takes longer to stop and is more difficult to control than a truck that does not exceed weight limits. In the aftermath of a truck accident, it is important to determine:
- Whether the truck was overweight
- Whether the trucking company has past overweight violations
Our firm will work to bring the strongest case of negligence against the trucking company and/or driver. Our firm works with accident reconstruction specialists and other safety experts to ensure that your case has the best possible chance of getting fair compensation for you. Your case will get the time and attention it deserves with our experienced personal injury law firm.Serving Victims of Overweight Trucks in Syracuse and Upstate New York
