Flatbed or Equipment Transport Vehicles
Trucks and flatbed trailers are often used to haul heavy loads such as construction equipment, farming equipment and materials. These loads affect the balance of these vehicles and must be monitored by the trucking company and the loading company. In some cases, these may be separate entities that may both have liability for the accident.
Due to the nature of highway travel, the companies must have procedures and systems that prevent the loads from tipping over onto other vehicles or shifting that may affect the control of the truck. The absence of these procedures may result in injuries to others on the highway.
