Manhattan, Brooklyn and Bronx Load Shift & Falling Debris Injury Lawyer
One critical factor to consider after a trucking accident is whether the crash was caused by overloading the truck or failing to properly balance and secure the load. A significant percentage of serious wrecks are caused by trucks that "jackknife," roll over, fail to stop within a reasonable distance or drop debris on the roadway — and getting to the bottom of what happened may prove critical to getting the financial compensation you deserve.
Exposing the Dangers of Trucking Company Negligence
If you or a family member has been victimized in an overloaded or unsecured truck load accident, you need an experienced lawyer on your side. At the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel, we put qualified investigators on the scene quickly and dedicate our resources to proving negligence such as:
- Truck overloading in violation of federal or state regulations, which are in place to help prevent serious accidents, devastating injuries and truck accident fatalities
- Improper or excessive loading that may have led to brake failure, a tire blowout, steering problem or other loss of control of the truck
- Failure to secure, inspect or test a trailer that later breaks away on the road, or otherwise guard against the potential for dropping debris that may cause a devastating accident for the driver of a car or motorcycle
Truck overloading may be a direct result of a trucking company's emphasis on profits over safety, or it may be a result of carelessness. In either case, holding the driver and company accountable for negligence may be the key to recovering the money you need to recover and support your family.
