Properly loading a commercial truck is one of the most important factors in ensuring a safe ride. Proper loading requires a degree of expertise. Truckers and staff are trained on how these vehicles operate and how to work with loads. Carelessly loading cargo into a trailer or piling it on a flatbed can cause rapid shifts. When they occur at high speeds, the result can cause jackknifing and other catastrophes.
Victims of these preventable accidents need to be compensated and the trucking industry should be held accountable. For more than 30 years, this belief has formed the bedrock of our approach — one that has obtained millions for injured clients.
