Was the Truck's Load Too Big or Improperly Loaded?
When 80,000 pounds of cargo is traveling at highway speeds, it is essential that weight restrictions are followed and the cargo is properly loaded, distributed and secured within the trailer of a tractor-trailer big rig.
Arizona Overloaded Truck Accident Attorneys
An accident that involves an overloaded truck and a car or SUV almost always causes serious injuries or wrongful death. If the cargo is overweight or improperly loaded, that can increase the danger to everyone involved in the accident.
Was it an overloaded truck? Was the load properly secured?
Our personal injury attorneys and accident experts review all aspects of a truck accident. Because catastrophic injuries are usually involved in an accident with a semi-truck, it is important to understand how the accident happened and who or what might have contributed to the accident. We also investigate the medical conditions of those injured so that our lawyers will know how much compensation is appropriate. After determining the extent of the injuries and the causes of the accident, our law firm will then develop an effective, persuasive case to present to an insurance company, and when necessary, to a jury.
An overloaded truck is a safety hazard on the highway.
Weigh stations along the highway emphasize the importance regulators place on truck weight. In spite of this, overweight cargo can still be a problem. Other problems occur because of how a truck is loaded. An out-of-balance load can cause a truck to tip over when it makes a turn or stops suddenly. Unrealistic truck schedules can contribute to the problem by not allowing enough time to check and re-check the cargo of an 18-wheeler.
We look at all the details and prepare the case for trial.
