Rollover Truck Crash Attorney

Rollover Truck Crash Attorney

Rollover truck crashes are among the most dangerous types of crashes. Not only will it seriously injure the truck driver, but it can also hurt drivers who are in the vicinity at the time of the crash.

Rollover crashes happen when the vehicle tips over on its side of the roof. In some rollovers, both the tractor and trailer can flip. When that happens, the cargo can spill from the truck onto the roadway. In addition, the crash can also cause a chain reaction of cars in the area who are either in the area where the truck tips over or right behind it.

Common Causes of Rollover Crashes

Rollover accidents have a number of causes, including:

  • Cargo that is improperly loaded onto a trailer
  • A truck driver misjudging the sharpness or a turn or not slowing down into the turn
  • A fatigued or distracted driver not paying attention to the road
  • An inexperienced truck driver simply cannot control an 80,000-pound vehicle
  • A poorly maintained or inspected tire could fail, causing the entire truck to roll over

It goes without saying that truck rollovers should not happen. When it happens, the truck driver (and by extension, their employer) is usually held liable in a claim for negligence. Truck rollovers are almost always the result of a mistake that entitles you to financial compensation if you can prove that the truck driver was responsible for the accident. An experienced attorney can investigate the accident and help determine the cause so you can file a claim for compensation.
