One factor that needs to be considered after a truck accident is whether the accident is caused by an overloaded or imbalanced truck. Loads need to be properly balanced and secured so that they do not shift or fall during transport. If you or a member of your family has been injured due to an overloaded or unsecured truck load accident, it is important to have an experienced lawyer on your side.

The overloading or improper loading of a semi truck may be the result of a trucking company's carelessness, which often happens as a result of the emphasis of profits over safety. Truck overloading is often in violation of federal or state regulations, which are designed to prevent serious accidents. The failure to secure or properly load cargo can lead to trailers that break away, debris dropping onto the road or the loss of control of the truck.
Holding the driver and/or the trucking company accountable for this type of negligence is important to recover the compensation you need for medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
