Falling Debris Truck Accidents

Truck cargo must be properly loaded and secured on any truck traveling in Georgia. On Atlanta’s roads, debris falling from trucks, whether cargo or parts of the truck itself, can be dangerous and lethal to others on the road, especially due to the congestion in our metro area. When debris falls from a truck, it can quickly cause chaos and dangerous road conditions given the weight of cargo and speed these large vehicles travel. Other vehicles on the road can end up having to swerve to avoid hitting falling cargo, or the cargo can fall directly on to other cars or motor vehicles, which can cause serious injury or even death.

Falling debris truck accidents can occur in various circumstances. And others on the road, whether in cars or other vehicles, can end up in an accident that is otherwise preventable. Some trucks carry very heavy equipment or parts that can roll or fall off when they are not chained or secured properly. Sometimes a truck that has jack-knifed or been involved in an accident spills its load, which can create a difficult condition for other drivers, whether produce, animals, construction equipment or hazardous materials.
