The process of loading a truck is extremely complex and must be done in a way that ensures the load is secure. There is a lot more to it than just loading up the trailer and tying down the cargo with a strap. Improperly secured loads can shift or come loose and lead to serious accidents.
It is the responsibility of the people on the loading dock as well as the driver to ensure that the truck is loaded in a way that ensures safe transport from start to finish. When mistakes are made and accidents happen as a result, injury victims have the right to seek damages from the negligent parties.
