Causes Of Truck Rollover Accidents
While the overwhelming majority of truck drivers are responsible people, it takes only one careless truck driver to cause a tragic rollover accident. Common causes of truck rollover accidents include:
- Overloading trucks
- Driving with unsecured loads
- Taking a turn too fast
- Speeding on icy or wet roads
Truck drivers are not always to blame for rollover accidents. Defective truck tires can also cause devastating accidents. When a defective tire blows out or separates on the road, the truck may lose its equilibrium and roll over.
When a truck rolls over on the road, it creates a hazard for oncoming traffic. When handling a truck accident case, we conduct thorough investigations to find the facts and determine the true cause of the accident.
We work to identify all liable parties so our clients can obtain maximum compensation for their losses, including medical bills, wage loss, and pain and suffering.
