Pembroke Pines Overweight / Overload Trucks

Overloaded trucks, incorrectly loaded cargo, and other cargo issues are a serious danger on our roads. Each year, people are seriously injured and even killed in trucking collisions in Pembroke Pines and across Florida because truck carriers, loaders, and truck drivers fail to obey federal rules regarding cargo on eighteen wheelers, big rigs, and other commercial trucks.

When an accident occurs, the attorneys and legal team at Flaxman Law Group are ready to assist anyone who is injured by offering legal advice and by preparing a strong legal case. We can help you understand whether you have a legal claim and how much your case may be worth. We offer free, no obligation case consultations so that you do not have to risk anything in order to find out basic legal information, such as whether you have a legal claim. Simply contact our law firm today to arrange a free case review.

Trucking Collisions Lead to Catastrophic Injury

A serious truck accident caused by overloaded or overweight cargo can cause severe injury, including:

  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Brain trauma
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Fractures
  • Crushing injury
  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Internal injuries
  • Fatalities
  • Disfiguration
  • Burns

Unfortunately, overweight and overloaded trucks are not only more likely to cause an accident, but they are also more likely than lighter trucks to cause severe injuries and fatalities. Dangerously overweight trucks create much more force upon impact and are harder to control than other commercial trucks. This can mean that a truck driver is not able to make any maneuvers to avoid the impact and it can mean that the heavier cargo can generate enough force to cause devastating injury.

Seeking Assistance After a Traffic Collision in Pembroke Pines or Your Community

If you have been injured, you may seek compensation from a legal claim or from a settlement offered out-of-court. In any event, it is important that attorneys prepare for a full-on trial. Preparing for a trial helps attorneys gather all the evidence they need to negotiate with insurance carriers or plaintiffs and to prepare a strong case in the event that the case does go to court. If you have been injured, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney so that you can take the steps needed to protect your interests.

If you or someone you love has been hurt in a roadway collision, the attorneys at Flaxman Law Group highly recommend that you speak with a lawyer experienced in handling motor vehicle accident cases. The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group, for example, have more than six decades of helping traffic accident, car accident, and personal injury victims recover compensation.
