Failing to load a truck properly can lead to the shift of materials inside the truck or on the road. When cargo spills or shifts happen, the end result is often a serious truck accident.
Truck drivers and hauling companies have a responsibility to ensure that a truck is properly loaded and cargo secured in order to prevent accidents from happening.
If a truck driver or hauling company fails to monitor the loading process it can lead to overloading which is illegal and also unsafe. An overloaded truck can tip over or put severe strain on the truck making it difficult to steer and stop.
If you or someone you know was injured in an overloaded truck accident, the experienced attorneys at Stephens, Anderson & Cummings can help you obtain the compensation you need for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Big rig, or semi-trailer, accidents can happen for a number of reasons including speeding, cargo load shift, fatigued driving and more.
Struggling with the consequences of truck accidents can be overwhelming, victims may suffer severe injuries while trying to pay for medical expenses or lose income while they are unable to work.
