Despite the obvious complications and potential dangers surrounding the
act of transporting large pieces of cargo, trucking companies continue
to do so on a daily basis. Any freight that is higher, wider, or heavier
than a typical tractor trailer container – such as pieces of machinery,
concrete piping, and even entire homes – is considered oversized cargo.
At The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C., we believe that you deserve compensation
for your trauma after a truck driver loses control of their vehicle due to
oversized loads and cargo and causes a catastrophic truck accident.

The Danger of Oversized Cargo
Oversized cargo on an 18-wheeler is not just big, it is also inherently
dangerous. Without undivided attention to the road and advanced expertise,
truck drivers will struggle to complete their route safely.
We can pinpoint what caused the dangerous truck accident, including:
Difficulty handling: Massive freight can put excessive weight on the truck’s axles, severely
hindering its ability to maneuver on the roads.
Reduced braking ability: Once a truck dragging oversized cargo hits highway speeds, its own inertia
will continue to pull it forward and any attempts to stop it with the
brake will be extremely difficult.
Tipping: Just a simple right-hand turn can cause oversized cargo to rock the entire
semi, leading to a destructive
Debris: Oversized cargo is usually comprised of many, smaller objects. During
transportation, bumps in the road or weathering can cause it to fall apart
and send dangerous debris into the path of motorists.
Our team of knowledgeable truck accident lawyers can analyze your claims
with deliberate care and a keen eye for details. By investigating how
the oversized cargo led the truck driver to lose control and injure you,
we can confidently pursue the largest settlement possible on your behalf.
