Pittsburgh Oversized Truck Loads Lawyer
Pennsylvania Truck Accident Lawyer
Trucking companies are not dumb. They know the weight restrictions. They know where the weigh stations are. They probably know down to the pound how much the truck and its cargo weigh. The simple math is that a bigger load is more profitable.
Unfortunately, it’s also simple math that an overloaded tractor-trailer or delivery truck is harder to stop or steer. In any truck crash case, especially a rear-end collision or jackknife accident, Hal Waldman and Associates investigates the total weight of the truck and whether it violated federal regulations.

Oversized Loads Lead to Truck Accidents and Worse Injuries
Federal and state regulations dictate a maximum weight for 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks. Violation of weight restrictions goes a long way toward proving negligence. Our skilled lawyers know how to prove that the truck was overweight at the time of the crash, through weigh station records, trucking company logs and records of what was shipped.
We know that an oversized load can cause tire blowout and brake failure or greatly increase a truck’s stopping distance. We know that this translates into horrific injuries or wrongful death when an 18-wheeler plows into other vehicles from behind or jackknifes into oncoming lanes of traffic.
