Accidents Caused by Incorrectly Secured Cargo in Houston
Call 888.240.0843 After a Truck Accident
Everyone has seen the massive tractor trailers that roll down our highways
with piles of cargo atop them. We put faith in the load crews and truck
drivers that everything is properly secured, leaving fellow motorists
at little to no risk. When those thousands of pounds of cargo are not
secured correctly, however, devastating
truck accidents can occur.

Truck Driver Negligence Is Simply Inexcusable
From concrete pipes and wooden logs to metal containers and construction
equipment, any sort of freight can cause a serious truck accident if unsecured.
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has heavily
regulated rules in place to ensure that truck drivers and trucking companies operate responsibly
and secure all dangerous cargo correctly.
Some of the most common causes of improperly stored cargo include:
- Loose ties and tie-downs
- Rolling equipment left unsecured
- Shifting load due to imbalance
- Collapsing cargo due to erratic steering
- Freight security is not checked regularly
For any accidents to occur by falling or shifting cargo and the driver’s
negligence is entirely unacceptable, and you should not have to pay for
medical and repair costs out of your own pocket.
