Did An Overloaded Truck Crash Into You? We Can Help.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations include truck weight limits and correct methods of securing the cargo. Each type of truck and cargo has specific securement requirements. Logs on a flatbed truck have different requirements than boxed items in a tractor-trailer, for example. It is critical that shippers, trucking companies and drivers understand and follow FMCSA regulations.

If negligence or an error by one of these parties caused a truck accident, you can take action and recover compensation for your losses. Fighting trucking companies and other corporations requires the help of an experienced lawyer, however. Jerry D. Andrews is a board-certified personal injury attorney who has been practicing for more than 20 years. You and your family can trust his knowledge and experience with your semi truck accident claim.

Overweight And Improperly Loaded Trucks Cause Serious Accidents

Failures in cargo securement can cause numerous problems. Trucking accidents may be the result of issues such as:

  • Incorrectly distributed cargo causing the truck to tip over
  • Unsecured cargo causing tractor-trailers to tip over if the load shifts
  • Improperly secured cargo falling off of flatbeds
  • The difficulty of stopping or steering overloaded/overweight trucks

We will investigate the accident to determine who is responsible for your losses. The cargo shipper may have failed to properly secure the load or the driver may have failed to inspect it. In some cases, there may be multiple liable parties.

Because truck accidents often result in catastrophic or fatal injuries, you will likely need considerable compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We will aggressively seek compensation from all liable parties.
