Nevada Regulations Concerning Lost Truck Loads
A recent study conducted by the Government Accountability Office indicated that the total number of unsecured truck load accidents is unknown provided the inability to distinguish roadway hazards from human error, including lost truckloads, and natural hazards, such as obstructions brought forth by natural causes, including harsh weather and falling objects.
In an attempt to ensure the safety of commercial vehicles carrying loads, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has created various regulations governing securing cargo on commercial trucks. As of today, only 15 states have had laws governing non-commercial vehicles operating with unsecured loads. Even fewer states have enacted safety education programs to teach drivers how to properly secure loads.
Any trucking company that fails to adhere to these regulations may face severe penalties, and they may he held accountable for any crash or injury caused as a result.
If a lost load causes an accident
Lost truckloads are dangerous as they can cause severe car accident injuries. If a truckload falls to the road, the potential for a car accident increases tenfold. From cars hitting the debris to cars swerving in an attempt to avoid the debris, the potential is vast.
When a lost truckload causes a collision, the effects of the drivers involved are dangerous. Typical injuries from this type of crash include broken bones, head injury, soft-tissue damage, nerve damage, lacerations, and emotional distress.
Some injuries can even be fatal or result in long-term disability. If and when this happens, you should seek to recover for the full extent of all economic and non-economic damages, including medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of consortium, and more.
