Federal Truck Laws and Load Restrictions
Our Orange County overloaded truck accident lawyers have extensive knowledge of federal trucking regulations. We are well-versed in the restrictions placed on the size, weight and loads of tractor trailers. The federal limitations are designed to ensure safe trucks, prevent unnecessary damage to the roadways and keep motorists out of harm's way.
When a truck is overloaded, the length and width of the load can exceed federal regulations, the weight may be over the limit and materials can fall off the truck more easily. This presents many types of hazardous conditions that can result in trucking accidents.
Items can fall off the trucks, crashing into the cars behind and around it. Materials can block the roadways, causing accidents. Trucks can tip over due to the weight. Multiple dangers exist, all of which can result in serious injury and death.
