Truck Accidents Involving overloaded Trucks in Delaware

Weight Load Violations | Unbalanced Loads | Improperly Secured Loads | Unsafe Weather Conditions

In today’s world, almost any conceivable product may be shipped by commercial truck. Unfortunately, large commercial trucks are often improperly loaded, without proper attention to the distribution of the load or whether the load will shift in transit. In addition, both truckers and trucking companies sometimes ignore weight restrictions in their drive to maximize profit and earnings. As a result, a truck may roll over on a turn, or a trucker may not be able to stop his rig in time to avoid an accident. If you have been hurt because a truck driver lost control of an overloaded truck or a truck with an unsafe load, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your interests.
