Traffic accidents are common in the U.S., and often these collisions involve commercial trucks. In many situations, the trucker, truck manufacturer, motor carrier, maintenance provider, or loader is at fault for these trucking accidents. Had each of these parties performed their duties properly, the accident would not have happened and you would not be facing a lengthy recovery and thousands of dollars in medical bills. Unfortunately, there are many places where something can go wrong, including with the truck’s cargo. If the truck’s cargo was not properly secured and within maximum weight and size requirements, then you may have been hurt in a truck load accident.
