Annapolis Overloaded Truck Accident Attorneys

The federal government regulates every facet of over-the-road hauling, from the maximum weight of semi trucks to the manner in which freight should be loaded and tied down. These strict rules reflect the grave danger that a 40-ton tractor-trailer or other large truck represents to the rest of the motoring public.

Unfortunately these regulations are routinely defied in the name of greed and efficiency. For trucking firms and truck drivers, time is money and extra cargo means extra profit. What's the harm?

Overloaded Trucks · Unsecured Loads · Improper Inspection And Maintenance

Cochran and Chhabra, LLC has the resources to conduct a thorough investigation into the root cause of truck crashes. We work with automotive engineers, accident reconstructionists and other experts to examine the wreckage, the debris field, the "black box" data recorder, trucker's logs and the company's maintenance and inspection reports. By analyzing these facts we work to establish the negligence or intentional acts that caused or contributed to our client's catastrophe:

  • Exceeding weight restrictions, resulting in increased braking distance and reduced maneuverability
  • Improperly secured loads, resulting in falling cargo or shifting freight that causes the truck to veer, jackknife or overturn
  • Improper storage and securement of hazardous materials, resulting in harm from toxic exposures or delayed medical attention
  • Neglected maintenance, resulting in non-roadworthy trucks with bald tires, bad brakes, broken lights or other hazards.
