Orlando Overloaded Truck Accident Attorney

When overloaded, a semi truck’s trailer becomes a serious safety threat to all motorists traveling Orlando’s busy roads and interstates. In Florida and many other states, a fully loaded big rig or 18-wheeler truck and trailer may legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds; certain trucks weighing up to 88,000 pounds can travel on specific non-interstate routes in Florida.

Many accidents caused by overweight and overloaded trucks are avoidable if truck drivers and the companies they work for simply follow important federal and state transportation regulations. Yet, due to commercial demands for shipping and to increase profits by delivering excess freight, truck companies may exceed the legal load and weight limits. When regulations are not followed, innocent people are at risk of sustaining serious and fatal injuries on Florida’s roads.

Our Lawyers Uncover the Evidence in Truck Accidents

Truck accident cases have multiple, not-so-obvious components that an experienced lawyer will evaluate to determine the maximum value in your case. These wrecks are different than car accidents because many times, more than one party will be held liable in truck accidents. Excessive weight and unstable loads on an overloaded truck can

  • place massive pressure on the wheels, and are a major cause of tire damage
  • cause trucks to require longer stop distance
  • increase the tendency for truck to roll over
  • puts strain on the vehicle causing brake failure
  • decrease the ability to handle properly under emergency conditions and in severe weather

The injury attorneys at TK Law work closely with investigators and other experts in order to uncover and examine all possible components of the case that may have contributed to an overloaded truck wreck, including:

  • Regulatory violations, such as an illegal overload (a violation of the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating or GVWR). This is applied to single vehicles (trucks and vans) and combination vehicles (tractor trailers and semis)
  • Loads not properly strapped down
  • Dangerous loads and hazardous materials
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Faulty equipment
  • Driver error, including distracted, impaired or tired driving
