Flatbed Truck Accident Lawyers

Commercial truck accidents are caused by many different factors. Often, the accidents are due to negligence on the part of the truck driver or a mechanical failure. However, as there are different types of trucks, there are going to be varying types of truck accidents.

What Is a Flatbed Truck?

One type of commercial truck is a flatbed truck, which have no walls or sides where the cargo is carried. They often carry things that can't fit inside closed-in trailers such as logs and cranes.

As with any type of commercial truck, the flatbed truck carries with it its own set of potential hazards:

  • On-Road Accidents: As flatbed trucks carry their cargo on top of the chassis rather than inside a compartment, if it is not secured correctly, it can be easy for the goods to become loose and cause accidents. A load that is not secured correctly can also shift its weight which causes the cargo to protrude into the cab, injuring the driver.
  • Off-Road Accidents: Flatbed trucks can also cause problems off the road. Loading cargo onto one of these trucks is typically just as dangerous as transporting it. The people who are loading the cargo can misjudge while using heavy machinery. It is important that those who do the loading and unloading of flatbed trucks be meticulous.
