Improperly Securing Items in Trucks

Whether someone is driving a pickup truck, car, SUV, or commercial 18-wheeler, he or she is responsible for securing and tying down all items that are in the bed, trailer, or on top of the vehicle. Many people use trucks to move items such as furniture or large machinery and if these items are not properly secured, the safety of other motorists may be in jeopardy.

If you or a loved one has been injured because of items falling out of a truck or trailer that were not properly tied down or secured, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation. You should not be left to shoulder the expenses of an injury that resulted from someone else’s negligence.

Recovering Damages

Trucks drivers and trucking companies have a responsibility to safely transport goods from place to place. Many items can shift during transit, and if they are not properly secured, they could fall out and cause drivers to swerve and cause an accident. If you have been injured because you were hit by a falling object, you were trying to avoid an object, or you were hit by someone else swerving, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pharmaceutical products and therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

It is important that negligent drivers are held accountable for the damage they cause to innocent motorists, and at the Abel Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping accident victims pursue justice.
