Almost every vehicle is certified with a maximum-sized load that it is able to carry safely. When these limits are ignored, it creates a serious potential safety hazard for both the driver and everyone else on the road. Nowhere is this more true than with commercial trucks.
Proper truck loading procedure involves accurate weight distribution, securing the load properly and other considerations. When a truck is improperly loaded, it can make the truck unstable and lead to rollovers or other dangerous situations. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that involved any type of truck, you should speak to an experienced Philadelphia personal injury lawyer immediately.
Holding All Negligent Parties Accountable
Claims involving overloaded truck accidents can be quite complex because there can be a number of different parties who might share in the responsibility for your injuries. Depending on the circumstances, the driver, the driver’s employer, the owner of the truck, the loading dock crew and others may all share responsibility for an accident.
When you hire our firm, our Philadelphia accident lawyers conduct a complete investigation into how your accident occurred and who was responsible. We will explore the viability of pursuing a claim against each party and build a customized plan designed to secure the maximum level of compensation available for your case.
