Falling Debris from Trucks Accident Injury Lawyer
Throughout the Peach State, serious trucking accidents cause injury because of falling debris from the load beds of large trucks. For example, a logging truck can lose its load of logs on the interstate, or a load of gravel can slowly drain out of a dump truck for several miles. The bottom line is, poorly secured items from commercial trucks pose a danger to others on the road. When a load is not properly and safely secured, this is a form of negligence. Not only does this break the law, it is also one of the most common types of truck driver negligence that leads to serious injury accidents.
If a large truck loses part or all of its load, serious accidents can occur. Imagine a load of logs hitting the roadway just ahead of you or the chains securing a piece of construction equipment fail and allow the machine to roll over onto a highway filled with automobiles. Such heavy items can literally destroy smaller nearby vehicles. In many cases, these accidents cause serious injuries, and even fatalities to the occupants of the other vehicles.
Legal Help for Georgia Commercial Trucking Negligence
Falling debris can occur whether or not the truck responsible is involved in the accident. A commercial truck can lose part of their load, cause a major accident behind them and keep on going completely unaware of what happened. It may require an extensive investigation just to locate the responsible truck and its driver.
Commercial truck accidents caused by negligence, even when falling debris from trucks is the obvious cause, can be complicated wrestling matches over liability. If someone other than the truck driver loaded the truck, they may be at least partially to blame. Stockbridge personal injury lawyer Darrell T.
