Violation of Load Limits

Des Moines Truck Overloading Lawyers

The “profit motive” is an important concept in economics. Generally the theory is that it promotes companies
to offer their products and services at a price that is both reasonable and attractive to consumers.
There are times, however, when a rush of greed or a simple unwillingness to say “no” to a customer may
drive a business to intentionally break the law or other accepted standards. For example, trucking companies
all too often violate truck load limits in an attempt to please customers.

If you have suffered injury or property damage in an accident that may have been caused by a commercial
trucking operation’s decision to willfully violate load limits, we can help. You may be entitled to
pursue a civil action for the negligence demonstrated.

Problems Caused by Excessive Loads

Load limits are designed to accomplish a number of different goals pertaining to roadway safety, and
failure to comply with load limits directly impacts truck safety, and by extension the welfare of others
on the streets and highways that they share. Some of the problems caused by excessive loads may include:

  • Extended braking distance
  • Jack-knifing
  • Bridge collapse
  • Overturned vehicles
  • Difficulty handling on grades or around turns
