How do truck rollovers happen?
A rollover accident often happens when a truck takes a curve or off-ramp too quickly. The cab can go one way and the trailer another. The wheels of the truck come off the road and the truck flips over onto its side, sometimes onto its back. The truck can then slide down the road and cause a collision or roll directly onto nearby cars.
This type of accident is often caused by negligence, such as:
- Speeding – Driving at speeds exceeding posted limits can lead to a rollover accident, as it becomes more difficult for the driver to navigate curves and maintain control of the truck.
- Improper cargo loading – Failing to secure or distribute cargo properly within the trailer can lead to an imbalance, affecting the truck’s stability and increasing the risk of a rollover during sudden movements or turns.
- Driver inexperience – A driver who does not have enough training or road experience may misjudge road conditions and make poor decisions that result in a rollover accident.
- Driver fatigue – Being too tired can impair a truck driver’s ability to react quickly and make good decisions, increasing the likelihood of a rollover crash.
- Poor maintenance – Neglecting regular maintenance on the truck, especially on tires and brakes, can result in equipment failures on the road that lead to an accident.
The stakes are high after rollovers, and insurance companies fight hard
A rollover accident can leave you seriously injured. Tractor-trailers weigh tens of thousands of pounds and can cause tremendous damage in a crash with a car. Victims can be left with broken bones, or injuries to the head, neck, or back. Some suffer spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Medical expenses can add up fast. Victims may need X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and lab tests to diagnose their injuries. Treatment may include surgery, medication, physical therapy, home care, and follow-up visits with doctors. It can take months or even longer to recover from their injuries. Some are left with a permanent disability.
But trucking companies and insurance carriers aggressively fight claims for compensation. They know how much money is at stake. There can also be many parties involved – including the truck driver, the trucking company, the company that owns the cargo, the company that loaded the cargo, and the company that owns the trailer.
Attorney Byron Browne knows how to handle these complex cases. He gets straight to the point and identifies the negligent parties. Then he fights for the compensation you deserve.
