Overloaded Commercial Trucks Cause Serious Injury. Let A Skilled Attorney Help You Recoup Maximum Compensation.
Semi trucks, 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles can weigh up to about 80,000 pounds. This is already a considerable weight without companies bending rules to make them even heavier. State and federal regulations are in place that regulate the size and weight limits of these trucks.
However, many trucking entities skirt these rules, overloading trucks. Such vast vehicles carrying cargo that is significantly over the suggested limit increases the risk of improperly secured cargo, tire explosions, brake failure and more.
