Davie Overweight / Overload Trucks

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has rules about cargo on commercial trucks under the North American Cargo Securement Standard. These rules dictate that cargo must be properly distributed and adequately secured on all commercial vehicles. The same rule places weight limits on truck cargo to ensure that commercial trucks do not exceed certain limits of safety. In addition, this law requires that cargo securing equipment such as tailgates, truck doors, and other parts of the truck are used correctly and are maintained correctly. When truck drivers, truck carriers, or cargo loaders ignore these rules, they can be held liable if their negligence or recklessness causes damages or a traffic collision in Davie or another community.

How Covered Are You After a Truck or Car Crash?

You may not become as covered as you think after a truck accident in Davie or your community. In many cases, people who have been injured in a truck collision with a big rig or tractor-trailer assume that their insurance carrier or the truck’s insurance carrier will take care of lost income, car repairs, medical costs, and other damages. Unfortunately this is not always the case.

Insurance companies often take steps right away to minimize liability and in some cases may undervalue claims. The aim of insurance companies is to provide profitability for their shareholders, and one way they can do that is by paying less than the maximum amount possible in every case. Insurance companies also try to resolve cases inexpensively and quickly, and this can mean that they end up undervaluing cases by deciding on the value of the case before the full extent of your injuries are known.
