The cause of many truck accidents can be traced to a load that was too heavy, not properly secured or unbalanced. Unfortunately, trucking companies are often quick to clean up the accident scene after a crash that causes a serious injury. As a result, evidence that you need to prove negligence on the part of the trucking company can go missing.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a truck accident, you can turn to the lawyers at The Law Firm of Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee & Deitzler, PLLC, in Charleston to protect your interests. We are here to hold trucking companies and drivers accountable when their negligence injures or kills innocent people. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Examples Of Improper Loading
Overweight trucks are harder to maneuver and more difficult to stop than trucks that do not exceed the legal weight limit. Unsecured loads can shift or come loose in transit, striking other vehicles or resulting in devastating rollovers.
The soon you contact our attorneys after an accident, the sooner we can to go work collecting and preserving evidence of liability. Was the truck overweight? Did the driver or trucking company have past weight violations? Were straps and tie-downs properly secured? Was the load properly balanced? The answers to these questions can help determine whether the trucking company or driver was negligent.
Our goal is to hold trucking companies and their insurance companies financially responsible to damages caused by unsecured loads and overweight loads.
