Unsecured Load Truck Accidents
Were You Seriously Injured In A Truck Crash?
Each 18-wheeler can transport tens of thousands of pounds of cargo on their trips, and sometimes carry unwieldy and/or hazardous loads. Truck drivers need to load their trucks safely and securely before even considering getting behind the wheel because an unbalanced or unsecure load can shift during transit. This can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle or cause the cargo to fly out of the back of the truck and hit other cars, trucks, and drivers on the road.

The Risks Of An Unsecured Load
Any cargo, if loaded improperly, can cause serious damage to other drivers and the road itself. Some risks include:
- Debris, such as rocks, lumber, heavy machinery, etc. flying out of an improperly secured load or overloaded truck.
- Cargo shifting during transit, causing the truck to become unbalanced and potentially flip over.
- Trailer doors flying open during transit, allowing the cargo to spill out of the back of the truck.
- The trailer itself becoming unhitched from the cab.
