A sudden turn or a lane shift can lead to a rollover truck accident if the vehicle is too heavy.

If you or a loved one was injured in an overloaded trailer accident, you may be entitled to compensation. It’s important to have an experienced lawyer on your side.

The risks of an overloaded trailer

A fully loaded 18-wheel semi-truck can reach up to 80,000 pounds, according to the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) interstate highway weight limits. Semi-truck drivers sometimes are paid by the amount they deliver. With this in mind, they may pack as much into their trailer as they can, even if there is an overloaded cargo load risk.

When we handle an overloaded tractor trailer accident case, we make sure to check driver logs and trucking company paperwork. The government requires semi trucks to stop at weigh stations. Our attorneys stay on top of every recorded detail leading up to an overloaded truck accident.
