Causes of Unsecured Cargo Accidents
If a driver or trucking company fails to adhere to cargo regulations, a truck’s load may be improperly secured, unsafely stored, or overloaded. Any of these issues can cause a serious problem. When a trailer is overloaded, it may cause the trailer to swing forward, causing a very damaging jackknife accident. IN very severe cases, it might cause the truck to overturn on the road, striking other vehicles.
Improperly secured truck loads may become loose within the truck trailer, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle, or potentially losing cargo. Loose cargo might fall off of our out of the trailer, hitting cars or pedestrians and causing serious damage.
Trucks loaded with hazardous materials could cause even more damage if those chemicals or substances are improperly stored. Leaks or spills could be catastrophic, causing fires or sometimes explosions.
