Truck Accidents Involving Wide Load Carriers

Fighting for Victims in the Most Complex Truck Accident Cases

Trucks that are specially designed to carry wide loads can be very cumbersome to operate. Fully loaded, these vehicles can easily reach a total weight of more than 100 thousand pounds. They require a great deal of care and skill on the part of the driver to ensure the safety of the other motorists on the road.

Wide load carriers are required by state and federal laws to follow certain safety regulations depending on the type of load being transported. These regulations may include requirements for flashing amber lights, front and rear escort vehicles, banners and flags, and even what times of day the truck is allowed to be on the road. Failure to follow any of these regulations can create an extremely hazardous situation.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to the negligent operation of a wide load carrier, you should seek the advice of a reputable personal injury lawyer with the ability to properly handle your case. At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd, P.A., we have helped countless clients who have been injured in wide load carrier accidents.

One of the most frequent causes of wide load trucking accidents is the driver's failure to allow the appropriate time and distance needed to bring the vehicle to a complete and safe stop. The forward escort vehicle notifies the driver of observed hazards so that the driver can take appropriate action. If the driver is going too fast, or if the forward escort does not provide enough notice, the potential for a serious accident increases dramatically.
