Misloaded Trucks Can Cause Serious Accidents. Take A Stand. Contact Us
The contents of a large truck (tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, etc.) need to be loaded exactly right. If not, the contents can shift during transport. When a large truck attempts to make a turn or stop quickly, such misloaded items can throw the truck's balance off. As a result, trucks can easily rollover or not have enough time to safely stop, causing an extremely serious truck accident.
Misloaded trucks are among the most common reasons for how truck accidents happen. Victims of misloaded trucks might think they don't need a lawyer to resolve their case. The accident seems straightforward. But the guilty driver and/or trucking company made a mistake and now they must deal with the consequences.
If only truck accidents were so simple. The reality is most truck companies and the corporations that loaded the truck often deny any wrongdoing. They might even try to point the finger at you, claiming you did something to cause the accident. And then there are the insurance companies. Even if the truck company admits wrongdoing, many insurance companies are focused on one thing: paying truck accident victims as little as possible.
