Who is liable if something falls off a semi-truck and causes an accident?

It is the duty of the trucking company and the driver to ensure that all cargo is secure and able to withstand travel. Typically, the driver carrying the cargo in their vehicle is held liable for that cargo, so if it falls and injures someone, it is assumed that the driver will be held responsible for any injuries or property damage.
