According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, roughly 80,000 truck accidents involving injuries occur every year. One common contributing factor in truck accidents is the improper loading of cargo. Because of the massive amount of weight that trucks haul, it is extremely important for the cargo to be loaded and secured in a way that creates a stable, balanced shipment. When a truck becomes unbalanced or loses cargo, serious accidents are likely to happen.
If you have been injured because of an improperly loaded truck, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Even if you exercise extraordinary caution, falling cargo can be impossible to avoid. Fortunately, we can help. To speak with an experienced truck accident attorney, contact the Kenosha improper loading attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.
Some of the problems that truck loaders are responsible for avoiding include poor weight distribution, the use of faulty or broken cargo straps, and overloading. When these issues are not properly addressed, catastrophic accidents are likely to happen. Some of the possible consequences include:
Safely loading cargo can mark the difference between an incident-free trip and a massive accident and the victims who suffer due to these failures should not have to bear the resulting costs.
