How often do unsecured load accidents happen? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

According to a study mandated by the U.S. Congress, in one year, there were more than 51,000 accidents caused by unsecured loads or road debris. These accidents resulted in more than 10,000 victims injured and the deaths of almost 500 victims. Since that study, states across the country have passed stricter laws regarded unsecured loads, but this is still a dangerous issue and a common cause of vehicle accidents.
