What is a rollover truck accident?
Rollover truck accidents are exactly what they sound like. If a large commercial truck rolls over on its side, that’s a rollover truck accident. The most common type of rollover truck accident often involves an 18-wheeler or semi-truck. Because these commercial trucks are so much larger than other vehicles on the road, rollover truck accidents are among the most serious crashes we deal with at our law firm.
Why do rollover truck accidents happen?
Rollover truck accidents happen for a wide range of reasons, many of which have to do with mistakes made by the truck driver or the trucking company that owns and operates the truck. Common causes of rollover accidents include:
- Reckless truck driver loses control of truck
- Truck driver drives too fast, especially around a curve, resulting in a rollover accident
- Truck’s brakes not properly maintained, fail to stop truck safely
- Truck tire blows out due to poor train maintenance
- Distracted truck driver loses control of truck
- Truck driver falls asleep at the wheel, loses control of truck
Your rollover truck accident may have been completely different. Every one is unique. That’s why it’s important to have a skilled attorney on your side, carefully investigating exactly what happened after your crash.
How can a rollover accident lawyer help me?
Rollover truck accidents might seem straightforward, especially if a commercial truck driver clearly caused your accident. The reality is many rollover accidents turn out to be far more complicated than many people expect.
The driver who caused your crash might deny doing anything wrong. The trucking company might do the same or try to prevent you from seeing evidence of wrongdoing. Then, there are the insurance companies. They often do everything they can to reduce or deny your claim. Why? Because your accident-related expenses could add up to thousands or millions of dollars.
