(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.

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.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
