Sheboygan Improper Truck Loading Attorneys

When truck drivers load their trucks with cargo, they need to ensure that it is thoroughly and properly secured. If the trailer opens whole on the road or the cargo secured to the trailer comes loose, dangerous accidents are likely. As the cargo falls into the roadway or strikes other vehicles, significant injuries and damage are certain to be sustained. Individuals who are hurt in this manner may, however, have the ability to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit against the negligent truck driver.

If you have been hurt in an accident caused by a truck driver’s improper loading or securing of cargo, we can help you to hold them accountable for the harm that you have suffered. For more information about your legal rights and options after an injury, contact a Sheboygan truck accident lawyer of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at (920) 459-8000.

The Dangers of Loose Cargo

When cargo is not secured properly or loaded onto the truck correctly, the resulting accidents from loose cargo can wreak havoc on the highways. Some of the following issues may be responsible for very dangerous accidents:

  • Cargo striking a vehicle
  • Falling cargo causing a truck driver to lose control over their truck
  • Cargo falling onto the road
  • Sudden shifts in the distribution of a truck’s weight can lead to jackknife or rollover

Victims of the resulting accidents may suffer severe injuries that require emergency medical care and which could conceivably leave them disabled for life.
