Improperly Loaded Cargo in Trucks
Although they are often criticized for poor fuel economy, pickup trucks are very useful when you are moving cargo and other items from one place to another. When a driver loads cargo in the back of his or her truck or trailer, he or she is responsible for securing the items to ensure they do not shift or fall out and potentially cause an accident. These accidents could cause serious injuries and are especially difficult to accept because they could have been avoided.
If you or someone you know has suffered a serious injury because of a driver’s improperly secured cargo, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Tips to Avoid an Accident
Truck drivers are responsible for fully securing their cargo, but there is always a risk of an accident. To avoid a potentially serious accident, be sure to follow these tips:
- Know where you would go if something were to fall out of the vehicle in front of you. By having a plan, you can possibly avoid a collision with the item.
- Be sure to keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you so you have plenty of time to react.
- If you are behind a loaded trailer or truck, try to go around them.
Sadly, though, no matter how safely you may drive, you can still be hurt by a careless or reckless truck driver.
Truck drivers who cause auto accidents due to improperly loaded cargo may be responsible for compensation those who are hurt in the accident. Contact the Milwaukee improperly loaded cargo attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874 to learn more about how we can help you.
