Accidents Caused by Incorrectly Secured Cargo in Houston
Contact Us After a Truck Accident
Everyone has seen the massive tractor-trailers that roll down our highways with piles of cargo atop them. We put faith in the load crews and truck drivers that everything is properly secured, leaving fellow motorists at little to no risk. When those thousands of pounds of cargo are not secured correctly, however, devastating truck accidents can occur.
We have 40+ years of combined experience representing innocent victims of personal injury. We can use our knowledge to your legal advantage.
If you have been seriously injured due to incorrectly secured cargo on an 18-wheeler, contact a Houston truck accident lawyer from The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. today.
Truck Driver Negligence Is Simply Inexcusable
From concrete pipes and wooden logs to metal containers and construction equipment, any sort of freight can cause a serious truck accident if unsecured. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has heavily regulated rules in place to ensure that truck drivers and trucking companies operate responsibly and secure all dangerous cargo correctly.
Some of the most common causes of improperly stored cargo include:
- Loose ties and tie-downs
- Rolling equipment left unsecured
- Shifting load due to imbalance
- Collapsing cargo due to erratic steering
- Freight security is not checked regularly
For any accidents to occur by falling or shifting cargo and the driver’s negligence is entirely unacceptable, and you should not have to pay for medical and repair costs out of your own pocket.
