Fighting For Your Rights

Unsecured And Improper Truck Loads

One of the great dangers of driving alongside trucks is that poorly secured freight will come loose and spill all over the highway. Imagine seeing logs, furniture and concrete culvert pipes suddenly tumbling out the back and blocking the highway. Or, the unbalanced load in the back will make the truck unwieldy to drive, leading to jackknives, rollovers, spills, gas explosions and other collateral damage.

Representing Victims Of California Truck Crashes

Many loads are too wide or too long or too heavy to be legal without special permits and sometimes pilot vehicles to escort them safely. But smaller trucks have serious cargo accidents, too, for a variety of reasons:

  • Unbalanced loads that cause tipping and swerving
  • Loose freight
  • Tie-downs that snap free
  • Loads that violate safety standards
  • Too-heavy rigs with slow braking time
  • Failed brakes and steering
  • Hazardous chemicals and toxic materials
  • Rig decoupling
  • Malfunctioning rear lights and turn signals

Truck Crashes Are Not Like Car Crashes

Trucking is regulated by federal law, which most states have also adopted. The law lays out specific responsibilities carriers must follow to share the roads with us. When these safety regulations are ignored, our firm goes to work securing maximum compensation for your injuries.

Truck accidents are violent, often resulting in death or catastrophic injury. Attorney Eliot Reiner knows how to conduct thorough investigations, not just of the accident scene but of the underlying documents and transcripts showing exactly what happened, and demanding that juries award compensation commensurate with the losses you have suffered.

For more information about accidents caused by unsecured and improper truck loads call Sacramento lawyer Eliot Reiner at (916) 778-3228 to discuss what you can do.
