OVERLOADED TRUCK ACCIDENTS DEMAND A STRONG SOUTH CAROLINA TRUCK ACCIDENT LAWYER
AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION FOR TRUCK INJURY VICTIMS
Strict federal laws spell out exactly how much weight can be loaded onto a tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler truck for safe operation on our roads and highways. At McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC, our experienced team of truck accident lawyers in South Carolina understands that these laws were created in part because overloaded trucks can easily tip over if they stop or turn quickly. But just because it’s the law doesn’t mean truck drivers or trucking companies are always willing to follow it.
PROBLEMS FROM OVERLOADED TRUCKS
What makes overloaded trucks so dangerous on roads and highways such as Interstate 20, Interstate 26, Interstate 85, and Interstate 77? A truck that is too heavy is harder to stop and may cause brake failure or a tire blowout. When an overloaded truck accident happens, innocent people can sustain serious, even life-threatening injuries. If a loved one died in an overloaded trailer accident, you may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit.
The following are some of the potential safety problems associated with an overloaded or an improperly loaded truck:
- Higher center of gravity, which may lead to a rollover
- Additional weight creates a more significant force in a crash
- Tires become overstressed, leading to higher risk of a blowout
- Additional stopping distance required
