Unsecured Cargo Accidents

Maryland Trucking Accident Lawyers

A trucking accident can often be caused by a tractor trailer not having its cargo secured or by being overloaded. The driver could lose control of the truck if its cargo load is not balanced correctly as the load may shift during transport. Debris could fall onto the roadway to cause an accident of many different levels. Improper loading of a truck or trailer could also lead to serious trucking accidents. Falling objects from a truck such as wood, trash, rocks or any other cargo is typically the result of poor loading procedures. Loading cargo improperly can cause risks on the roads and freeways if debris is falling off into other traffic lanes. Inadequate use of tie-downs is a common cause of unsecured cargo accidents. Leaving unsecured objects, cargo or equipment in the bed of a truck can also cause an accident as it can fall out onto the road. Suitable load weight and balance distribution of freight are crucial for a truck driver to safely haul its cargo in order to prevent an accident or accidents.
