Improperly Secured Cargo
At some point in life, most individuals will have to move a piece of furniture, appliance, or another good from one place to another. And whether a person is delivering a product or moving to a new home, trucks are typically the most common vehicles used. Even though trucks or 18-wheelers make it easy to transport larger items, it is essential that drivers properly secure any and all cargo before taking to the road. A failure to do so can result in serious accidents that injure innocent motorists.
If you have been injured because of improperly secured cargo that caused a car accident, you may be eligible for compensation from the party responsible for your pain and suffering.

Avoiding an Accident
You cannot always predict when and where an accident will happen, but there are ways you can be proactive on the road in order to avoid a collision. If you are driving near a loaded truck, be sure to:
- Drive defensively and always prepare for the possibility that cargo could fall off the vehicle
- Do not tailgate these vehicles
- Go around the vehicles if possible to avoid the possibility of cargo falling on or in front of you
Sadly, even safe drivers can get into accidents because of the recklessness of other motorists. If you were involved in an accident, contact a Rhinelander car accident attorney today.
