How Unsecured Cargo Causes Truck Accidents

Although all cargo shifts to some extent while in route during accelerations, stops, or turns, it must be loaded in such a fashion that the weight is distributed evenly to reduce these shifts. Shifting cargo caused by improperly secured loads can result in serious accidents, injuries, and fatalities.

Furthermore, the cargo could be overweight, making it much more likely to shift or spill during transport, as well as resulting in braking and maneuvering difficulties.

Common causes of unsecured cargo include:

  • Improper or lack of tie-downs
  • Unstable stacking of the cargo
  • Imbalanced loads which can lead to rollover accidents
  • Cargo falling off the truck
  • Truck driver’s failure to check the load frequently during transport

Ready to Pursue Your Compensation Today

As with many trucking accidents, you may be entitled to sue a variety of people or entities. The loading company could be at fault fi they failed to secure the cargo properly. The trucker may be at fault for failing to ensure the load is safely strapped down. The trucking company may be at fault for encouraging their drivers to take on more cargo than their truck is capable of handling in order to save money. Our Fort Worth unsecured cargo accident attorney can investigate your case and determine which parties are liable for your accident and injuries.
