Moving trucks are a common sight on our roadways. Professional movers employ vehicles that range from box trucks up to 18-wheelers and road trains or double semitrailers. The drivers of these vehicles are under the same type of pressures to cover as many miles as possible in the shortest period of time as the drivers of other commercial vehicles.
Common causes of moving truck accidents fall into three major categories:
- Driver errors
- Equipment failure
- Roadway hazard
Trucking accidents can also be caused by improperly secured loads or overloaded trailers. As a number of long distance movers allow customers to load the vehicles themselves, improper loading and overloading become real risks.
If you have been involved in a moving truck accident, contact Cravens & Noll immediately to ensure that you are properly cared for, that your injuries are documented and that treatment has begun.
