What Are Common Causes of Truck Rollover Accidents?
Rollover accidents are usually caused by a truck driver who is exceeding the speed limit and, given the high center of gravity, trucks can easily roll over when this happens. Our firm works with the victims of rollover accidents to bring them needed financial compensation.
Other causes of rollover accidents can include:
- Distracted driving
- Rain, snow, or ice
- Sharp turns
- Improperly loaded trucks
- Driver fatigue
- Abrupt maneuvers
- Steep hills
At Crow Law Firm we understand what is needed to recover compensation for those injured when they are harmed through no fault of their own. By means of aggressive representation, our Roswell truck accidents attorney can hold any and all responsible parties accountable.
What Are Common Injuries Sustained in Rollover Accidents?
When a large truck rolls over, both the truck driver and other drivers on the road are at risk. The truck driver may be tossed around the cabin or ejected from the vehicle, and other vehicles may be crushed by an out-of-control truck weighing up to 80,000 pounds.
Due to the enormous weight of large trucks, passenger vehicles usually collapse upon impact. Passengers inside of a collapsed vehicle rarely survive.
Even those lucky enough to survive a truck rollover are frequently left with serious injuries, including:
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Neck and spinal cord injuries (SCI)
- Facial injuries
- Injuries to the chest wall (thorax injuries)
- Fractures (broken bones)
- Extremity injuries (broken arms and legs)
Damages in a Truck Accident Lawsuit
These injuries can leave victims paralyzed, unable to breathe, and permanently disabled. Because truck accidents are most often caused by speeding or driver inattention (see the previous section), survivors should file suit against the truck driver and their shipping company to help with medical bills, missed wages, and a lifetime of serious adjustments.
Who Is Liable in a Rollover Truck Accident?
Many parties may be liable for a rollover truck accident. If the truck driver was speeding, drowsy, or distracted at the time of the accident, they will face liability.
Most truck drivers work for shipping companies, as well, and employers are typically responsible for their employees’ actions. Worse, some shipping companies urge their drivers to violate federal trucking safety rules to meet unreasonable deadlines.
Further, many trucks roll over because of improperly balanced loads or overloading. When this is the case, the party that loaded the truck may face liability, as well. Crow Law Firm uncovers all sources of liability to help you recover the most compensation.
Compensation in Rollover Truck Accidents
Due to the serious nature of rollover truck accidents, compensation is usually high.
Injured or bereaved victims can recover damages for:
- Hospital bills and emergency transportation
- Ongoing medical care
- Missed wages
- Lost earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Assistive care and devices
- Special therapies
- Funeral costs
- Loss of companionship and support
- And more
While no amount of money will change what happened, having the correct resources can help you adjust to your injury and move forward with the care and support you need. If you lost a loved one, the compensation you receive can help you pay for their funeral and burial, offset the financial impact of their loss, and take the time you need to grieve.
