Improperly Secured Cargo
Many people choose to load trucks and other large vehicles themselves while moving or transporting large items. While trucks and trailers are ideal for carrying a large amount of cargo, they can be highly dangerous if drivers fail to properly secure the items before driving on public roads. If these items are not snugly tied down or secure, they could fall out and potentially cause serious car accidents.
Drivers are responsible for securing all items in their trucks or trailers before driving. If they fail to do so, they are acting negligently. It is time to hold these careless parties responsible for the accidents they cause. If you have been hurt by a reckless, unsafe driver, contact the Madison reckless driving lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874.
Tips to Avoid an Accident
Although those who drive commercial trucks or pickup trucks are responsible for tying down and securing all items they are carrying, other drivers on the road can also take action to decrease the risk of an accident involving improperly secured cargo. If you are traveling near a truck loaded with cargo, you should follow these steps:
- Do not tailgate these vehicles
- Go around them if possible
- Avoid the vehicle’s blind spots
If you have been hurt in an accident caused by improperly loaded cargo, you may be eligible for compensation for your pain and suffering.
