Improperly Loaded Trucks Can Tip And Cause Injuries

When truckers are not careful while loading their semitrailers, heavy loads can tip and throw the balance of their massive trucks off. This can make it difficult to steer and can even tip the entire truck on its side, leading to devastating accidents.

If you have been involved in a semitruck accident, The Townsley Law Firm will conduct a thorough investigation to uncover all of the causes of your accident, including whether or not the truck was properly loaded. Initial consultations are free of charge.

Investigating Your Truck Accident To Uncover Improper Loading Issues

Improper loading of trucks can entail many negligent acts, including:

  • Failing to strap down large logs which roll onto the highway
  • Overloading the bed, leading to spills and overturned trucks
  • Improperly secured cargo that shifts, leading to a jackknife
  • Overloading that blows out tires and causes uncontrollable trucks

Even small items that fall off of a truck can cause serious injury. If you have encountered an improperly loaded truck in the Lake Charles area that led to an accident, allow our injury team to help.
