If A Truck Crash Was Caused Because Of The Load Shifting, Isn’t The Truck Driver Liable For My Damages?

Possibly. There are load secure requirements in place by the Federal Motor Safety Administration.  Truck drivers are responsible to inspect their trucks before hitting the road, which includes making sure their loads are secure. However, oftentimes third parties load the trucks. When pre-inspections are ignored or if loaders cut corners, loads might shift and lead to truck crashes.

If load securing rules were violated, those responsible for the loading of the truck will be held liable. Some of the responsible parties can include:

  • Truck drivers
  • Trucking companies
  • Shipping companies
  • Manufacturers of defective restraints
  • Trailer owners

When loaders weren’t trained properly or if truck drivers were negligent and it led to a load shift truck accident, the parties responsible will be held accountable for your damages. Because these types of wrecks may be complex due to the number of parties involved, you should speak with a Florida trucking accident attorney.
