How Does an Overweight Truck Cause an Accident?

An overweight or improperly loaded truck does not perform the way it should, and is more difficult to control.  The excess weight can cause the truck to speed up when going downhill, and can be more difficult to bring to a complete stop. If the truck driver is forced to slam on the brakes to avoid a crash, the trailer may jackknife. Excessive cargo or improperly distributed weight can also make the truck more likely to tip over when negotiating a turn or curve. An overloaded truck is more likely to have unsecured cargo that may fall, causing a crash. Overweight and improperly loaded trucks are more likely overall to suffer problems such as a tire blowout, loss of steering control, and rollovers.

Weigh stations exist along our nation’s highways so that truckers may stop and make sure that the truck does not exceed the posted weight limits. However, not all truck drivers adhere to weight restrictions. When truck drivers or companies violate safety regulations, other drivers pay the price. That’s where the truck accident lawyers at Munley Law can help.

First, I want to tell you I hired another firm for my case before Marion, I did not choose carefully the first time is all I will say. Secondly, I would like to say that I do not give the highest rating to many people or companies without earning it. I can say Marion earned it!! She and everyone I came into contact with in her firm handled my case with the utmost professionalism, as well as true empathy for my situation, while not missing a detail about the facts of the case. I can not leave out her paralegal Janice, she was totally on the ball at all times. My case was a personal injury case ( I was hit by a tractor trailer) which was settled for a very fair settlement! I am sure whatever your case involves, she will handle it in the same manner. She is a great person and an awesome attorney!! She will fight for you!! Jeffrey, a Personal Injury Client

I got into a serious accident with a tractor trailer two years ago, one that took me out of commission for months. The trucking company was fighting my case, saying I was the one who caused the accident. Luckily, I had Dan Munley at my side. He got me the money to help pay the medical bills and much more. He really pulled through for me and my family and I am eternally grateful to him. Trucking Accident Client

Bob Munley helped me at the worst time of my life. After my accident, I thought I would never recover. But Bob Munley was with me every step of the way. Not only did he get me what I needed, but he made sure I understood what was happening with my case. Trucking Accident Client
