Were You Injured in a Cargo Spill Accident?
Truck Accident Representation
Although there are plenty of trucking regulations established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to try to protect motorists from the inherent dangers of large 18-wheelers, accidents, and collisions still happen frequently on Texas roadways. One of the more dangerous hazards that can be created by a negligent truck driver is cargo spills, which send perilous pieces of debris into the traffic behind the commercial truck. When this occurs, everyone around the vehicle is in jeopardy.

Why Cargo Spills Are So Dangerous
When people think of a truck accident, they usually imagine a frightful rear-end collision, as this is one of the most common forms of such accidents. Or they might think of the truck jackknifing and rolling over. Not many people are actually aware that the danger a commercial truck presents can also immediately affect the people behind it. When cargo shipments spill out of the trailer and onto the road behind the vehicle, it is sure to catch even the best of drivers off-guard.
Negligent behavior that could lead to freight falling onto the highway include:
- Drowsy or otherwise inattentive truck drivers
- Incorrectly secured cargo
- Inexperienced truck drivers mishandling the vehicle
- Intoxicated truckers
- Overloaded trailers
- Oversized cargo
Personal Injury Costs Could Be in the Thousands
When cargo spills into the freeway and collides with another motorist, the damages can be catastrophic. From broken bones to crushed vehicles, the mayhem caused by the negligent truck driver must not be allowed to permanently scar the victims.
