(813) 254-7119 Falling Debris from Trucks

Falling Debris from Trucks Injury Lawyer

Large commercial trucks haul all types of materials and goods, from the groceries you eat to the lumber or metal needed for construction. One of the key safety measures required by truck drivers is ensuring their loads are secure and do not pose a risk of falling during transport. Unfortunately, if a truck driver is not meticulous about checking the load, there may be debris or materials that can come loose. If falling debris from a commercial truck causes an injury accident, the truck driver and others involved may be liable for the accident.

“Debris” that can fall off a commercial truck could be small or giant, depending on the materials being hauled. Flat-bed trailers may have materials tied down that can become loose and fall off onto the road. Dump trucks may have loose materials fly out and damage the vehicles behind them. Even closed trailers can lose items, and shifting items in the trailer can fly out the back doors and cause serious accidents. When these incidences occur and someone is injured, it is a complicated matter to determine who is at fault and should pay for the injuries caused by the falling debris.

Who Is At Fault for Unsecured Load Accidents?

First off, the driver of the truck is always partially at fault if they have an unsecured load that causes an accident. It is their responsibility to ensure their vehicle is safe whenever they get behind the wheel. However, there are others that may be liable in these types of accidents. The company that loaded the truck may be liable if they did not make sure it was secured. If the truck driver is employed or contracted through a trucking company, that company may be liable for accidents caused by their driver. These cases can be complex, which is why you need an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
