Unsafe Loads

Most of the trucks you see on the highway are carrying loads. Anything from construction equipment to consumer products can be loaded into a tractor-trailer. If these loads are not properly balanced and properly secured, the load might shift and make it more difficult for the truck driver to maintain control. Add to that the potential for a driver to be fatigued, going too fast or inattentive and the truck might cause a devastating accident.

Our attorneys are skilled at examining all aspects of an accident to properly determine liability. We work with accident reconstructionists to get a better understanding of exactly what factors contributed to the accident. By investigating the accident scene, the police report and interviewing witnesses, we can begin to develop an effective case strategy. We will work with the at-fault party's insurance carrier in an attempt to negotiate a settlement agreement that compensates our clients for their injuries. If a proper settlement is not forthcoming, we are fully prepared to represent our clients in court.
