Improperly Securing Items in Trucks

In order to transport goods from one place to another, many people choose to use or rent a truck and transport the goods in the back. Trucks can be very convenient and save time and energy because they have sufficient cargo room to carry more than other vehicles. Unfortunately, they can be very dangerous if the loaded items are not properly tied down or secured. If the items are not secured, they could shift and fall out of the truck, causing a major accident.

You should not have to suffer financially because of an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. If you or a loved one has been in an accident resulting from a truck driver’s negligent loading of his or her vehicle, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Staying Safe on the Road

If you have been involved in an accident caused by a collision with an item that has fallen out of a truck or from swerving to miss the item, you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover damages. When driving on the road with pickup trucks or commercial 18-wheelers, be sure to follow these guidelines:

  • Keep a safe distance between you and the truck if you are following behind it
  • Have a planned response in case items began to fall out of the truck
  • If you can, try to avoid following these vehicles too closely
  • Try to warn drivers if items appear to be loose or falling
