Birmingham Overloaded Trucks Lawyer

Commercial Trucking Litigation-Overweight Trucks


When a truck driver causes an accident by operating a truck that

is overloaded or has an unsecured load, it is usually someone else

who ends up paying the price. In most cases, the truck driver will

walk away from the accident, while the people in the other vehicle

may suffer life-changing injuries or death.

At Riley & Jackson, P.C., we handle truck accident cases involving

issues such as overloaded trucks and driver fatigue. We offer a

free initial consultation to discuss your case.

 

 

Holding Truck Drivers and Trucking Companies Accountable

State and federal regulations govern both weight limits and proper loading of trailers. When truck drivers or trucking companies don't follow these rules, the driving public is put at risk:

  • Overloaded trucks are harder to stop. This can result in rear-end collisions, especially when trucks follow other vehicles too closely or speed up to prepare for long inclines.
  • Unbalanced loads can shift in transit, causing truck drivers to lose control or even tip over at high speeds.
  • When loads are not properly secured, items falling off the truck bed can cause serious injury and death to other drivers.

Overloading or improperly loading a truck can make the difference between avoiding an accident and causing one.

If you or a loved one is injured in an accident involving a truck, prompt investigation is required to determine if overweight, unbalanced or unsecured cargo was a factor in causing the accident. If the truck driver or trucking company was at fault, you are entitled to full compensation for all of the damages you suffered in the accident.
