Belleville Improper Truck Loading Accident Lawyers

The safe operation of a semi tractor-trailer is dependent on a large number of factors being successfully accounted for. Some of the factors that must be attended to include:

  • Attentive and safe vehicle operation
  • Adequate vehicle maintenance
  • Attention to road conditions
  • Taking required rest breaks

Failure of any one of these factors can have disastrous consequences for other motorists that are sharing the highway with a semi that presents this type of risk.

Was Your Truck Accident Caused by Improperly Loaded Cargo?

One factor that can be crucial, and may be overlooked, is the importance of properly loading cargo. When cargo is not loaded properly, it can cause the trailer to behave erratically and cause the driver to lose control. Even cargo that may have been properly loaded can pose a danger if it is not properly secured. Unsecured cargo can shift during transit and cause the same challenges to safe operation.
