Dangers of Unsecured Cargo and Truck Accidents in Dallas

Unsecured cargo on commercial trucks is a serious hazard and is the cause of many serious injury accidents in the Dallas area, and throughout the country. An accident can be caused by a loose fastening or unsecured cargo from falling onto the road, creating an extreme hazard. An uneven, unsecured load can cause a truck to jackknife rollover or sway into lanes, impossible for even an experienced truck driver to control.

Commercial trucks must be loaded evenly with all cargo secured to be stable while in motion. It is the responsibility of the trucking firm, and possibly the firm that loaded the truck, to ensure that the load is evenly distributed, with cargo fully secured. When a commercial truck is involved in an accident, both state and federal agencies are involved in the investigation to determine the cause.

Federal Regulations for Commercial Trucks

Trucking firms are governed by strict federal trucking regulations, and truck accident investigators will arrive at the scene, collecting data to make a determination as to the cause of the accident. If an unsecured load is determined to have led to serious injuries or death, compensation for damages should be sought by the victim or the family.

The size and weight of a commercial truck that has lost a load, overturned, jackknifed or rolled over can lead to severe injuries, such as:

  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries

Wrongful death can even result as an unfortunate consequence of a truck accident.

Contact us to discuss your case and how we can help you get the financial compensation you deserve. We have an experienced and knowledgeable team that is prepared to review your situation, determine the value of your case, and to pursue compensation from all liable parties.
