A piece of cargo fell off a truck transporting it on I-95 North which caused two cars to crash, and resulted in a brief closure of all lanes. When cargo transported by trucks, tractor-trailers and other vehicles is not properly fastened, it may fall off and cause an accident. This year, several people across the nation were killed in accidents where pipes, bricks and other building materials fell off trucks and hit other cars fatally injuring motorists. In such accidents, liability may fall on several parties. If the object fell off a vehicle because it was improperly fastened or inadequately secured, a truck driver or an employee responsible for maintenance and inspection of the cargo may be liable for property damage and personal injuries caused by the fallen object. In many cases, the company transporting materials is responsible for compensating the injured party.
