Proper loading is one of the most important parts of transferring goods by truck; its importance is so great that it requires special training. Negligent loading of cargo into a trailer or onto a flatbed can cause rapid shifts and falling cargo that will almost always result in catastrophe. Additionally, overloaded coal trucks can present a deadly encounter for families on West Virginia roads. Those who are injured as a result of this kind of negligence need to be compensated so they can heal and recover and so that accountability is bolstered in the trucking industry.
If you or someone close to you was injured because of an improperly loaded truck, our legal team is here for you.
