Dangerous and Deadly Unsecured Load Accidents
Traveling down a highway with other drivers is sometimes challenging enough. You should not have to dodge rocks and other debris coming from a truck carrying too much of a load that is not secure. Sometimes that "falling debris" takes the form of larger items that can do significant damage to your car or crash through your windshield, seriously injuring you and others.
Preventing the contents of a trailer from falling out is many times not enough to stop accidents from happening. As the truck travels, the load shifts. If the center of gravity is off by even a small amount, that truck could tip over and land on the car next to them. That driver and those passengers face serious injury and death. It could easily be you and your family dealing with that hazard.
Holding the Negligent Party Responsible for Unsecured Loads That Cause Accidents
At Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., we hold truck drivers and trucking companies accountable for their negligence in loading the trailer or flatbed of a commercial truck. They must exercise the highest standards of safety, particularly when a load contains hazardous or volatile material.
A lawyer without trucking accident litigation experience will often times overlook the company that actually loaded and secured the freight or cargo. That potential party provides additional monetary sources for your economic recovery as well as additional venue choices.
