An unsecured load in a commercial or big-rig truck can be a deadly hazard.
Driving on the freeways in Southern California is sometimes challenging enough with big trucks, motor vehicles and motorcycles all over the road. But, when you have to dodge debris coming from a truck carrying too much of a load that is not secure, it can be extremely dangerous, not to mention pretty scary. Imagine the significant damage to your car or crash through your windshield, seriously injuring you and your passengers.
Preventing the contents of a trailer from falling out is sometimes not enough to stop an accident from happening. As the truck travels down the freeway, the load inside shifts - oftentimes causing the truck to tip over and land on the car next to it.
The driver of the car and the passengers face serious injury and even death. It could easily be you and your family dealing with that hazard.
If you or a family member have been seriously injured in a truck accident caused by an unsecured load, do not hesitate to contact the personal injury law offices of Peach & Weathers. We hold truck drivers and trucking companies accountable for their negligence in loading the trailer or flatbed of a commercial truck. Trucking companies must exercise the highest standards of safety, particularly when a load contains hazardous material.
