Injuries due to improperly loaded truck accidents can be severe
For safety reasons, the government puts weight restrictions on trucks. An overweight truck or improperly loaded trucks can cause a truck’s tires to blow out or brakes to fail, or may lead to other safety problems.
Trucking companies may neglect to follow the rules and overload their trailers to boost profits. An accident caused by an overweight truck or an improperly loaded semi can be devastating and catastrophic.

A closer look at trucking weight regulations
The Department of Transportation requires trucks not to exceed 80,000 pounds. When trucks exceed the DOT limits, the driver may have a harder time stopping the tractor trailer. A rear-end accident caused by a truck often can be traced back to an improperly loaded semi truck.
