One of the leading cause of crashes is unsecured cargo

There are lots of trucks in North Carolina. They can range from semi-trucks to trucks carrying cars, logs and other big equipment. Usually, drivers are able to safely share the road with these trucks, but occasionally a serious truck accident occurs. One of the leading causes of truck crashes is unsecured cargo.

Thousands of crashes happen every year in North Carolina and across the United States because of unsecured cargo. There are many instances of objects that have fallen off trucks onto the roadways making them a serious hazard. They can range from logs to mattresses to rocks to steel beams. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety estimates there are 51,000 car crashes every year because of an unsecured load. It is important that trucks have loads that are tied down properly and that trailers are secured.

Although there are trucking companies who emphasize safety with their employees, other trucking companies rush their drivers to their deliveries, sacrificing truck safety. Truck drivers who do not properly secure their load risk their lives as well as the lives of drivers around them. If a person has been injured due to a truck accident they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can help their client figure out what happened to cause the accident. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

When a truck does not properly secure their cargo they risk the lives of everyone on the road. It is important to hold truck drivers and trucking companies accountable for their mistake so that others are not injured.
