Like many businesses, trucking companies are motivated by their bottom lines. Unfortunately, all too many cut corners just to save money. In the process, they jeopardize the safety of other drivers on the road.
One significant way that truckers cut corners is by overloading trucks. While federal regulations limit the amount of cargo truckers are allowed to carry at one time, truckers often exceed this limit. They pile in cargo to avoid making two trips or requiring two trucks.
Sadly, overloaded trucks cause many serious injuries on American roads each year. These include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns and wrongful death. If you have been injured or if a loved one has been killed, contacting the attorneys at Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., is a smart decision.
