Unsecured Cargo Truck Accident Lawyer

YES! Review my Case Immediately!

A fully loaded truck carrying unsecured cargo can be a recipe for disaster. If the load a tractor trailer is carrying is not properly secured, all it can take is a bump in the road for the cargo to become loose and fall on to the road or crash into any vehicles driving behind the truck. It can cause a terrible accident that can cause severe injuries and result in someone’s death.

If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by a tractor trailer’s unsecured cargo, now is the time to act. Contact the Scranton unsecured cargo truck accident lawyers at Munley Law to learn more about your legal options.

How Often Does Unsecured Cargo Cause an Accident?

When we think of a truck accident, we may think of something like a jackknifing truck. However, unsecured cargo causes thousands of crashes each year. According to research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, vehicle parts, cargo, and other material that has been unintentionally fell off vehicles onto the roadways causes more than 25,000 automobile crashes each year, resulting in 80 to 90 fatalities.

The United States Department of Transportation has regulations in place on how commercial trucks are suppose to secure the cargo. This is especially true when it comes to tractor trailers carrying hazardous cargo; these type of accidents can be even more dangerous, with an increase in an explosion or fire.

What Can Cause Cargo to Come Loose?

When a truck’s cargo is not secured properly, it increases the risk of the cargo to fly into the road or into another vehicle. Imagine driving behind a truck at a high rate of speed when the cargo becomes undone. This can result in a serious collision that may cost someone his/her life.

Sometimes, bungees or similar tethers are used to strap down the cargo. Yet, with continued use of these type of tethers, along with adverse weather conditions, the tethers can break and cause the cargo to spill on the roadway.

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
