Improper loading causes truck accidents in Illinois

Did you know that improper loading is one of the leading causes of truck accidents? There are many reasons why loading a truck improperly can lead to an accident, and most of them are easy to avoid.

Poor load distribution

A truck is typically designed to be as stable as possible while carrying a load. When the weight of the cargo is not evenly distributed, it can throw the truck off balance and cause it to lose control. This can lead to accidents and personal injury claims, especially when the truck is traveling on curves or hills or even when making simple turns. It's important to always distribute the weight of the cargo evenly throughout the truck.

Improper securing of the load

Another time truck accidents occur is when loads are not properly secured. This can be especially dangerous when the truck is traveling at high speeds as even a small amount of movement can cause the load to shift and come loose. It's important to use the correct type of securing devices to keep the load in place and to check them regularly to make sure they are still secure.


It's important to never overload a truck, as this can also cause loss of balance and make be loaded evenly, with the weight distributed as close to the center of gravity as possible. When something is improperly loaded, it can throw off the balance of the truck and cause it to tip over. This is especially dangerous when the truck is traveling at high speeds.

You may receive compensation if you're injured in a truck accident. The cargo loading company may be liable for any damages that occur as a result of an improperly loaded truck. Just ensure you understand the process of filing a personal injury claim so that you can get the help you need to recover from your injuries.
