Miramar Overweight / Overload Trucks

Cargo issues are a common cause of trucking accidents in Miramar and other communities. Incorrectly secured cargo, for example, can cause cargo to shift, which can cause a rollover. Overloaded cargo can also spill from a truck, landing in front of other vehicles and causing roadway accidents. When tractor trailers and big rigs exceed weight limits, the heaviness of the trucks can cause collisions or can cause damage to roads that leads to secondary car accidents.

At Flaxman Law Group, our legal team understands the dangers of overloaded truck cargo. We have worked with thousands of personal injury and truck accident collision plaintiffs and we understand that a serious traffic accident can change your life forever. While we can't turn back your life to the way it was before the accident, we can fight aggressively for justice if you qualify for legal claim. If you would like to know whether you have a claim and would like to know much your claim may be worth, contact our law firm today for a free case review. You can always reach us through our website or by calling 866-352-9626.

Overloaded Trucks Can Cause Truck and Car Collisions in Miramar and Other Communities

All trucks can be dangerous due to their size and their blind spots, but trucks with unsafe cargo can be even more deadly. Overloaded truck cargo can cause many hazards, including:

  • Road and infrastructure damage that can lead to secondary accidents
  • Truck rollovers
  • Drivers losing control of their truck
  • Trucks rolling down hills or trucks rolling backward on steep hills
  • Tire blowouts
  • Brake failure
  • Mechanical failure
  • Loss of cargo while driving, causing chain reaction or secondary accidents
  • Bridge or overpass collapses

In many cases, these situations are completely preventable. In fact, there are federal rules in place to ensure that cargo is correctly loaded, secured, and distributed. There are also weight limits in place and weigh stations on our nation’s highways to keep dangerously heavy trucks off bridges and roads. Despite these precautions, however, truck carriers continue to overload trucks in some cases and this leads to serious injuries and fatalities each year.

What Will Happen After Your Trucking Collision?

After a trucking collision, you may be dealing with a complicated insurance claims process and with the pain of serious injuries. You may be traumatized and upset. In some cases, truck carriers or their representatives may want you to sign paperwork or accept a settlement offer.

You will need to make many decisions after a serious roadway collision, but until you get legal advice and find out what has caused your crash, you will not want to make any final decisions. It is important to pursue quality medical care as well as maximum compensation after a serious injury. This can help improve your chances of a full recovery and can help you secure the finances you need to pay for lost income and the many other expenses you may face as a result of your injuries.

The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group understand that the time following a serious injury is often traumatic, and we do what we can to make the situation a little bit more bearable. If you have been injured, contact our compassionate and professional legal team today for a free case assessment.
