Truck Driver Injured by Falling Cargo


Injured in a Truck Accident?

George Patterson represented a truck driver in Federal Court that was injured by cargo that had been improperly loaded and secured in a trailer.

The truck driver was hired to pick up a sealed trailer and accordingly never had an opportunity to verify that the cargo was properly loaded and secured in the trailer.  When he delivered the sealed trailer to be unloaded, he had to open the trailer doors before backing the truck into a loading dock.  Once he opened the doors the cargo came crashing on the driver.

Mr. Patterson obtained a confidential settlement after he established the standard of care for properly loading a trailer and that the process of utilizing sealed containers prevented the truck driver from verifying that the truck was safely loaded.

Mr. Patterson's compassion and competency are boundless. He kept me informed throughout the process and his work resulted in a more than satisfactory outcome for me. Mr. Patterson works with motivation; I firmly believe that his priority is to help those who need him. I would refer him to anyone who seeks legal advice.

Truck Accident Client

Truck drivers involved in accidents can lose their jobs or suffer other consequences from their employers if they are found to be at fault for an accident. Accordingly truck drivers have a strong incentive to deny that they were responsible for an accident.
