Commercial vehicles carrying loads are many times heavier than other vehicles on the road. Larger vehicles require ample time to effectively brake, turn, and avoid collisions with other vehicles. A truck that is overloaded is also much more likely to cause accidents as the result of a tire blowout, a malfunction in the load and more.
If you have been hurt in a trucking collision, you deserve to have strong legal representation. You should be represented by someone who cares about the outcome of your case and has the legal skills to most effectively represent your interests.

Overloaded Truck Accidents In Kentucky
Truck drivers are required to pull over at specific checkpoints to check the weight and size of the load. Driver logs are kept by the driver to show weight check points, but violations of the driver log can happen if a driver is attempting to carry a load that is heavier than what is allowed for.
Our truck accident lawyers take an aggressive and thorough approach to investigating the cause of the accident and gathering information from driver’s logs, weigh stations, and the truck’s black box. We use all of this information to help build a strong case and prove the cause of the accident.
