We Will Maximize Your Compensation and Hold the Trucking Company Accountable

When an 18-wheeler is improperly loaded or overloaded, the freight can shift, break loose into traffic or cause the truck to roll over or jackknife with sudden maneuvers. Passengers of adjacent vehicles can be helpless when an overloaded or unbalanced truck loses control.

At Holman Schiavone, LLC, our attorneys offer compassionate and experienced legal advocacy to truck accident victims and their families in Missouri and Kansas. Based in Kansas City, we will help you hold responsible parties accountable for the negligence that contributed to unbalanced and overloaded trucks and, ultimately, the negligence that contributed to the truck accident.

We Secure Evidence at the Accident Scene and Independently Investigate

Almost immediately following a semi rollover or 18-wheeler accident, the commercial trucking company deploys a fleet of investigators, insurance representatives and lawyers to the accident scene. It is their job to gain control over the accident scene and minimize the trucking company’s legal and liability exposure.

It is important to have a skilled legal team on your side to ensure your interests are not compromised, especially if you have suffered catastrophic injuries.

In truck accident cases involving vehicles that have rolled over on the highway or jackknifed into other vehicles, our lawyers and investigators pay particular attention to unbalanced, overloaded and shifted loads.

We investigate negligence such as:

  • Failure to balance and inspect cargo before a trip
  • Failure to properly train truckers how to inspect cargo balance
  • Failure to properly load the truck
  • Negligent overloading of a truck trailer

When a tractor-trailer’s cargo shifts, it can be one of the most dangerous events that is inevitably bound to lead to an accident. If the negligence of the truck driver, trucking company or company responsible for loading the truck contributed to an unbalanced load or overloaded truck, our team will pursue full accountability for your full and fair compensation.
