Liquid Cargo And The Slosh Factor
Due to the fact that liquid cargo cannot be secured or tied down like other types of cargo can, there are other various risks that may attribute to an accident. If the tanker is under-filled, the liquid is splashing around inside and it makes for a constant weight shift of the large vehicle. This is one way an accident can happen because the vehicle is unstable while being driven. This occurrence has been studied and has come to be known as “the slosh factor”.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a trucking accident caused by any kind of liquid cargo, it is vital you contact a Charleston, SC tanker truck accident attorney immediately.
