Did a Rollover Cause Your Injuries? We Want to Help

A rollover occurs when a truck tips onto its side or onto its roof. Truck rollovers are rare, but when they occur, they can be disastrous for the people and vehicles around them. These types of accidents have the highest fatality rate of any truck accident.

When a truck rolls over, there are always injuries, and victims may be able to file a claim against the truck driver or company to receive compensation. After a tractor-trailer has seriously harmed you, call The Husband and Wife Law Team for help. We will investigate the accident and file a claim on your behalf, seeking the compensation you’re owed.

I was surprised how well I was treated.

Common Causes of Truck Rollovers

A large truck may roll when making a turn or rounding a corner, particularly if the truck driver was speeding. When making the turn, the truck may lean in the opposite direction, causing it to fall on its side. Unfortunately, this is not the only cause of truck rollover accidents:

  • Improper loading: Truck drivers, shippers, and shipping companies may load the truck improperly. When that is the case, the load can shift, causing the weight to fall to one side, which may ultimately cause the truck to tip over.
  • Truck driver negligence: If a truck driver brakes or accelerates too suddenly, this can cause the center of gravity to shift in the truck, leading to a rollover accident.
  • Speeding: This is a common cause of truck rollovers, particularly if the driver was taking a curve or exiting or entering an on- or off-ramp.
  • Improper truck maintenance: Low tire pressure, worn brakes, and other parts of a truck can cause a rollover if they are not properly maintained. It is the responsibility of the truck driver and the trucking company to inspect these trucks before they go out.

When a rollover accident occurs, there is likely someone at fault for the accident. A Phoenix trucking injury lawyer can help determine who was at fault and hold them liable for paying compensation to victims.

Liability in a Truck Rollover

When a truck rollover occurs, it is often the truck driver’s fault. Drivers have a responsibility to ensure their load is secured and operate their truck in a safe manner. When they fail to do so, they can be found negligent.

The trucking company could also be found liable for any injuries or damages resulting from an accident. Trucking companies are often responsible for their employee’s actions, particularly if they hired unqualified drivers or did not train them properly. Trucking companies can also be held directly responsible. For example, if the company wanted to save money and did not replace the tires on a truck in its fleet, it could be held responsible if that tire blows out and causes an accident.

Other parties may also be held responsible for a truck rollover accident. If a maintenance company did not maintain or repair the truck, or another company improperly loaded the truck, they both may be found responsible.
