Truck accidents involving rollovers have the potential to cost someone their life. Others could be left with serious injuries and an unfortunate impact on their finances. A truck rollover accident happens when a truck swerves to avoid a head on collision and turns onto the side or on top of the vehicle.
This type of accident can be fatal for drivers in both vehicles, and involves the truck potentially rolling several times before stopping.
Some 15,000 trucks are involved in rollover accidents each year, according to recent statistics, and many factors can contribute to them. These include fatigued or distracted drivers, poorly loaded equipment, and curved roadways.
After a rollover crash, you will need to have the accident investigated in order to determine whether any of these factors played a part in the accident:
If another driver caused your rollover accident, it was most likely due to improper loading of cargo. In order to prove negligence on the part of the other driver, you must be able to determine who was negligent in loading the cargo.
When proving negligence, you are also responsible for proving the following:
If you were behind the wheel of the vehicle, the defense may try to argue that you either caused the accident or contributed in some way. They may also try to argue that a third party caused the accident. The purpose of doing this is to limit their liability as much as possible.
