Overturned trailer dumps 94,000 pounds of trash onto roadway

Ever feel frustrated at seeing litter strewn across the road? How about driving along and hoping that the floating plastic bag weaving across the freeway isn't stuck to the front of your cars grill? If that much litter bothers you, you probably wanted to avoid I-93 North for a while as a recent crash left roughly 94,000 pounds of trash spilled across three lanes.

On Tuesday, January 8, 2013, a truck accident involving an overturned 18-wheeler filled with trash spread the contents of the trailer across the highway. The crash was so bad that highway signs updated drivers of the delays and lane closures from exit 40 all the way back to Boston. The truck driver sustained some injuries in the accident, but will eventually be ok. No other motor vehicles were involved in the incident.

Many don't realize that commercial trucking and freighting companies are often self-insured which can lead to long and drawn out litigation if they are involved in motorway accidents with other vehicles. This can often lead to a delay in financial compensation for those injured. That is why it is imperative that those involved in truck accidents have an advocate on their behalf in the process. The companies themselves often have one of their own investigators at the site of the accident as soon as they are able in order to work towards mitigating their liabilities.

If you have been involved in a trucking accident or know someone who has, please contact and hire a personal injury attorney that understands the industry. Hiring a firm that has knowledge and experience in dealing with trucking and freighting companies will be able to assist you in assessing your legal options and give you confidence that they will fight for your interests in the matter.
