Houston Overloaded Trucking Accident Attorneys
Dedicated to High-Quality Injury Representation
Government regulations have set maximum weight limits for commercial trucks.
A typical semi truck's weight is not supposed to exceed 80,000 pounds.
Unfortunately, some trucking companies overload their vehicles to deliver
more goods and make more money. This can lead to catastrophic accidents
on the road.
Unsecured cargo and oversized loads can be dangerous for many reasons:
- Cargo can fall out if a truck hits a bump
- Wind can cause cargo to fall
- Goods that fall on the roads can cause collisions
- Overweight trucks can be harder to maneuver

Protecting You from Insurance Companies
Immediately after an accident, the trucking company's insurance investigators
will be sent to the scene of the accident. They are not working to reveal
the facts behind the accident, but to limit their own liability.
If you have been injured by an overloaded vehicle, it is important for
you to hire a Houston truck accident attorney as soon as possible. At

cause of your accident. We will diligently preserve crucial on-scene evidence,
such as witness testimony and black box data from the truck in order to
help you build a claim for the compensation you need and deserve.
