What Is a Lost Load Accident?

A lost load accident occurs when a truck driver, cargo loading crew, or freight company fails to secure cargo inside or onto the trailer of a big rig. When the unsecured load breaks free and falls to the roadway, it can cause severe accidents and injuries as other motorists try to dodge the resulting debris.

Some causes of lost load accidents include the following:

  • Improper securement of cargo
  • Loose cargo in the trailer
  • Weight imbalance
  • Overloading of the trailer
  • Failure to pressurize liquid cargo
  • Tiedown strap failure
  • Negligent driving
  • Distracted driving

Why Are Lost Load Accidents Dangerous?

Lost load accidents are dangerous because over-the-road trucks carry massive amounts of cargo. A typical large 18-wheel truck can carry upwards of 70,000 pounds of goods either in an enclosed trailer, on a flatbed, or in a pressurized or unpressurized liquid container. Trucking companies make money by moving as much freight as possible in the shortest amount of time, so keeping their trucks loaded to the limit is in their best interests. If these loads are not secured properly, either due to negligence, worn-out equipment, or because the company wants the truck to carry more cargo than is allowed, that load becomes 35 tons of debris in the middle of an active roadway.

Do I Need an Attorney for My Lost Load Accident in Rhode Island?

If you or your family have suffered injuries or property damage due to the truck driver’s, loading company’s, or trucking company’s negligence, then you are entitled to compensation. You should contact one of the attorneys at Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd. and start the process of filing an injury claim for damages right away.

Although filing a claim is a relatively simple process, hiring an attorney before you do so is a good idea. An attorney can review your claim for errors or omissions that might get it denied on a technicality. We will also take the lead in dealing with insurance companies and negotiating a settlement that covers all your losses, not just the medical bills or property damage. Losses like pain and suffering require experience with Indiana injury law to assess correctly, and if you don’t have a skillful attorney review your claim, you may be leaving money on the table.

Insurance companies recognize that when you hire an attorney to assist with your claim, you’re in this for the long haul and won’t accept less money than your accident is worth. Reputation is important in injury law, and retaining legal counsel the insurance companies know sends a clear signal to the insurance adjusters that they can’t take advantage of you.

If you’ve suffered severe injury due to a lost load accident, you have better things to do with your time than try to build a comprehensive injury claim for damages. When you hire a lawyer, we do the hard work for you. We will investigate the accident, gather relevant documents and evidence, and allow you to get back to the important tasks of recovering from your injuries or helping your family to do the same.

Why Hire Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd. for My Lost Load Trucking Accident?

We wrote the book on injury accidents. Our founder, Ronald Resmini, has more than four decades of experience in Rhode Island injury law. As well as being the recipient of multiple awards, such as Massachusetts Senior Attorney of the Year Award in 2010 from Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and the Massachusetts Bar Association, he is a member of the prestigious Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a group whose membership requirement is winning $1 million or more in a settlement or verdict. He is also the author of almost two dozen Rhode Island Law Institute handbooks on injury law.

Our firm gives back to Rhode Island. We helped create the Resmini/Fenton/O’Brien Scholarship to help underprivileged students at Suffolk University, Ronald Resmini’s alma mater, pay their tuition. We also support and advocate for RISE, Rhode Islanders Support Education, an organization designed to interrupt intergenerational poverty by providing children of incarcerated parents with mentorship and scholarships.

And finally, we get results. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for thousands of clients, and we can do the same for you and your family.

How Much Does an Injury Attorney Cost?

We recognize that not everyone saves for the day they might need to hire a lawyer, which is why we work on a contingency-fee arrangement. You pay nothing upfront. We will investigate your accident and build a comprehensive injury claim for you with no retainer. If we are successful in obtaining a settlement or verdict in your favor, we then take an agreed-upon percentage of the award. If we are not successful at getting you some form of compensation, you don’t pay a dime.

This works best because it allows you to hire a high-quality lawyer with no money upfront, and it gives us extra incentive to make sure we get you the compensation you need to get on with your life.
