Every year, thousands of accidents involving large commercial vehicles such as 18-wheelers and semi trucks occur. Truck accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, with one of the most common being improper loading of cargo. 18-wheelers and semi trucks haul huge amounts of cargo, and the weight and distribution of that load must be carefully monitored to avoid accidents. If the weight is unevenly distributed or the load is improperly secured, serious consequences may occur.
