Overloaded Trucks And Overweight Trucks

After an overloaded truck accident, all factors must be considered in order to maximize compensation. You may have an injury claim against the driver of the tractor-trailer, or against an entity that was responsible for loading the semitruck. The overload or lack of tie down which resulted in your accidental injury on the highway may have been the responsibility of some other person or entity other than the truck driver. However, the truck driver may have failed in his duty to inspect his own truck, even if someone else loaded it.

Furthermore, the driver's log may reveal where the contents of a tractor-trailer were weighed — which may reveal to investigators whether the truck was overweight.

Falling Debris

In some cases, truck accidents and injuries are the result of debris, such as ice, falling from the truck and landing on automobiles behind the car. If you were hit by debris from a truck, which drove away without knowing that it hit you, you can still make a claim against your own uninsured motorist insurance if you are unable to locate the truck. In some other accidents, the truck was improperly loaded or overloaded, resulting in an unstable truck that was difficult to control.
