Hazardous Materials & Oversized Loads
Two of the primary culprits to blame for commercial vehicle and 18 wheeler truck accidents are oversize loads and loads of hazardous materials. Even when they are not the primary cause, these factors can change an ordinary accident into one that causes serious injury or even death.
Hazardous materials, including explosives, gases, flammables, oxidizers, toxic substances, radioactive materials, corrosive materials, and other hazardous materials raise unique issues in trucking accidents, and are often responsible for the most catastrophic of incidents. Drivers transporting these materials have even higher responsibilities and duties that they often fail to follow, including the need to attend to their vehicles at all times, limitations on routes they can take, and limitations on where they can park.

Drivers transporting oversized loads have increased responsibilities they often fail to follow, including special permitting, additional signage and lighting, and escort vehicles.
