The Weight Of Trucks Leave Little Room For Error

Because of the size and mass of 18-wheelers, even the slightest breakdown in truck maintenance can have disastrous effects. Inadequate maintenance in large commercial trucks can lead to:

  • Defective brakes
  • Defective steering systems
  • Inadequate underride protection
  • Transmission failure
  • Tire blowouts

While federal regulations regulate the maintenance and operation of semi trucks, trucking companies cut corners to increase profits. This is a dangerous practice that risks the lives of truck drivers and everyone else on the road. All too often, faulty truck maintenance leads to serious brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and even wrongful death.

Our attorneys are well versed in the regulations regarding truck maintenance and will work to help you pursue maximum compensation for the losses you have suffered.

Imbalanced Loads

Lawyers For Overloaded Truck Accidents

Unstable Or Unsecured Loads Put All Drivers At Risk

When 18-wheelers and other large trucks carry unbalanced loads or are overloaded, the freight can shift, causing the truck to rollover or jackknife. Unsecured cargo can also break loose from the truck, spilling on to the road. In either instance, every other driver and passenger in the vicinity of the truck is put at risk.

At Colucci, Colucci, Marcus & Flavin, P.C., we represent people who have been injured due to overloaded and unsecured trucks and other forms of negligence. We have a proven record of success obtaining favorable verdicts and settlements for clients from the Boston area and throughout Massachusetts.

Facing The Aftermath Of Overloaded/Unsecured Trucks

When a truck accident results in the truck jackknifing or rolling over on the highway, it is important to inspect the accident for signs of negligence. In many cases, these accidents could have been avoided if the truck had been properly loaded and inspected.

When trucks carry heavy equipment, timber, building supplies and other large, open loads, the loads must be properly secured. Falling debris can cause trailing vehicles to change course suddenly or crash directly into debris.

Trucking companies fight accident lawsuits aggressively and often send teams of investigators to the scene of the accident to gain control of the accident scene and limit the companies’ exposure to liability. Our lawyers know how to find the facts in these cases to identify errors in loading, balance inspection and other factors. We aggressively pursue the facts to support our clients’ claims and to help them pursue maximum compensation for their losses.
