Despite how massive semi-trucks and tractor-trailers are, if they are carrying cargo over the maximum capacity as regulated, it can lead to devastating accidents, injuries, and fatalities. In many cases, truck companies do this to generate more profit or meet deadlines at a faster rate. However, if a trucking company or driver is negligent in the loading of their trucks, victims can pursue monetary compensation.

Why Do Overloaded Trucks Cause Accidents?
Semi-trucks and tractor-trailers are large and move at high speeds over great distances. The more the truck carries, the more difficult it is to maneuver or stop, especially if a collision is imminent.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) sets the limit for commercial trucks at a total weight of 80,000 pounds. Cargo limit regulations are meant to keep other motorists, passengers, and pedestrians safe from harm and avoid causing accidents. Truck drivers who fail to follow the limits not only break the law, but also put the lives of everyone around them in danger.
