Miami Overweight / Overload Trucks

Truck carriers and truck drivers are responsible for making sure that they comply with truck weight limits set by federal agencies. When truck drivers and truck owners violate weight limits and regulations, everyone who shares the roadways with the overloaded or overweight truck in Miami or your community is at risk.

Unfortunately, truck accidents caused by overweight and overloaded trucks cause far too many injuries and accidents each year, and these types of collisions are entirely preventable. If you have been injured due to a reckless truck driver or negligent truck carrier, do not hesitate to contact Flaxman Law Group at 866-352-9626 to review your legal options and your rights. In addition to an insurance claim, you may have a legal claim or other options for pursuing compensation so that you can protect your family and yourself financially following your losses.

Overloaded And Overweight Trucks Cause Serious Risks

Tractor trailers, big rigs, and other commercial trucks are already so large that it may not seem to make much of a difference if a little extra weight is placed on them. However, trucks that exceeded cargo weight limits are extremely dangerous and can lead to a number of hazardous situations on the road including:

  • Miami rollovers
  • Damage to trucks and bridges
  • Collapsed bridges
  • Brake failure
  • Tire blowouts
  • Car collisions
  • Traffic crashes
  • Head-on collisions
Recovering After a Serious Truck Crash

A serious trucking collision can leave you in pain and can make it impossible for you to return to work. At the same time, it can leave you with substantial care repair bills and medical costs. If you're unable to work after your collision, you will need to replace lost income and you may face considerable expenses due to the cost of treatment in South Florida. Speak with a personal injury attorney before you accept any insurance money in your case or before you make any decisions about your situation.

The reality is that a serious traffic accident can leave you with medical challenges but can also cause financial distress. To recover after your collision, you will want to tackle both issues. If you have been injured, contact a personal injury attorney in your community. An experienced attorney can negotiate with insurance carriers, help you find local resources, and can help you understand how much your injuries may cost. All this information can help you make the right decision about your situation and your injuries.

The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group understand the ways that overloaded trucks or cargo issues can contribute to truck accidents that can lead to injuries and fatalities.
