Improper Loading

Failure to properly load or secure a load on a semi-truck can result in a disastrous accident. Debris may fall off of a truck and strike other vehicles. A truck may tip over because its cargo is not properly balanced. Too heavy of a load may mean that a truck driver cannot stop in time to avoid an accident. In any case, the victims of these accidents are often left with catastrophic injuries. At the law firm of Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, our Massachusetts improper truck loading accident lawyers will fight to get injured victims the full and fair compensation they need to move forward with their lives.
