Unsecured Loads

Many people choose to pack as many things into a truck as possible on moving day. Truck companies occasionally overload the trucks in their fleet in an attempt to save money. And some people are simply irresponsible in ensuring their trunk is closed or that the cargo they are hauling is secured. All of these actions can lead to devastating accidents and serious injuries in the event that inadequately secured cargo falls off of or out of a vehicle.

If you or your loved one has recently been injured in a motor vehicle accident due to the failure of another party to secure a load, it is important that you are properly informed about your legal rights. The Des Moines car accident attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., are dedicated to getting their clients the compensation they deserve.

The Dangers of Unsecured Loads

When traveling at high speeds, an object such as a chair or mattress that falls onto the road can trigger a chain reaction, as other motorists must brake abruptly or attempt to swerve. People traveling with hazardous substances that fail to secure their load also present a huge risk. Chemicals pouring out onto the road may lead to dangerous exposure and highway closures. When cargo is improperly secured, those affected may be able to seek financial compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Vehicle repairs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
