One of the most common causes of truck accidents is overloaded cargo. When a commercial truck carries too much weight, the vehicle generates more momentum that makes it extremely hard to stop. Collisions involving overweight trucks often result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities.

With millions of dollars recovered on behalf of our clients, our Brooklyn truck accident lawyer at Belushin Law Firm, P.C. understands what it takes to obtain the most favorable outcome possible and help you make a successful recovery from injury.

Dangers Associated with Overweight Trucks

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, commercial trucks have a maximum weight capacity of 20,000 pounds per axle, which is 80,000 pounds in total for a four-axle truck. Commercial trucking companies and truck drivers are obligated to maintain the proper weight limits and ensure that the cargo is loaded sufficiently and distributed evenly.

An overweight truck can lead to the following hazards:

  • Brake and tire malfunction
  • Stopping difficulties
  • Increased damage to the roads and highways
  • Scattered cargo
