Unsecured Cargo Accidents

Austin Truck Accident Lawyer

Sharing the roadways with semi-trucks can be very dangerous, especially when you are driving in close proximity to an eighteen-wheeler on the freeway. If you were injured in a truck accident because of an unsecured load, you are urged to contact an Austin personal injury attorney from The Daspit Law Firm.

Being involved in a truck accident is more complicated than a standard car accident. You will have to deal with your own insurance company, the trucking company, and their large insurance carrier. You can look to our unique credentials and experience to affirm why we are the firm to trust with your unsecured cargo case.

Improperly Loaded Trucks

While there are different causes of truck accidents, improperly loaded trucks are by far some of the most dangerous. When a fully loaded semi-truck can reach as much as 80,000 pounds, the implications of an unsecured load can be disastrous.

When cargo dislodges and falls on the road and into the path of vehicles, it becomes a serious hazard for drivers. A 2004 study by AAA, entitled "The Safety Impact of Vehicle-Related Road Debris" found that vehicle-related road debris was estimated to cause over 25,000 crashes annually, claiming 81 to 90 lives.

One of the most common problems associated with an overloaded truck is overturning, and this often occurs when a truck is making a turn. As the load shifts, the weight of the truck is imbalanced and the truck overturns.

If a smaller passenger-sized car is next to or near the truck, it can be crushed by the weight of the load. Or, falling objects such as logs, cars, pipes, or even hazardous materials can be sent rolling or shooting across a highway, and thereby cause serious, if not life-threatening injuries to other drivers and passengers.
