Improperly secured cargo results in many accidents on Kentucky roadways each year due to loads shifting under transit, instability resulting in jackknifing and rollovers, or goods spilling onto roadways.
Failure To Prepare Is Preparing To Fail
At Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, we believe that trucking companies and their insurance carriers should not be able to fall back on the excuse of “accidents happen.” Is it really an accident when people fail to take proper precautions and someone is injured as a result? There is a clear cause and effect, and we will fight to make sure you are compensated for what you have been through.
What should truck drivers and trucking companies be doing?
- Using proper restraints to secure cargo inside trailers
- Stacking cargo in a manner that promotes stability
- Restraining cargo with proper tie-downs on flat bed trailers
Failure to maintain restraints and take other actions to adequately secure cargo and avoid falling debris is not only lazy, it is negligent. We will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident and pursue compensation from all available sources, including manufacturers of cargo restraint devices, truck drivers and trucking companies.
