Truck Accidents Caused by Unsecured Cargo
Federal regulations impose specific requirements for securing cargo hauled by commercial trucks. The rules require the use of cargo securement systems capable of withstanding specific minimum forces, and impose additional requirements for certain types of cargo such as metal coils, concrete pipe and heavy machinery.
These regulations serve to protect the motoring public. Overloaded trucks require greater distances to stop. Shifting loads may cause the driver to lose control or the truck to overturn. When trucking companies break the rules for properly securing cargo, injuries can result. At Clark Perdue, our Ohio truck accident attorneys know how to determine whether a truck crash was caused by improperly secured cargo – and they have the experience to prove it in court.
