Strong Ohio Lawyers Protecting Truck Rollover Victims and Families
Aggressive representation when truck drivers and companies cause a truck to flip
Truck rollovers are one of the most common types of truck accidents. Almost every type of large truck has the potential to roll over. Rollovers can happen because a truck strikes an object in the road, collides with another vehicle, or because of some contact with another object. Truck rollovers can also occur without contact because of the dimensions and the center of gravity of the truck. Truck rollover accidents are often deadly. Survivors usually suffer catastrophic or permanent injuries.
At Crandall & Pera Law, we take truck accidents very seriously. That is why our Ohio truck rollover attorneys work with professionals in the trucking industry, along with truck accident reconstruction experts, to determine exactly what caused the truck to rollover. We hold drivers, truck companies, and anyone else—such as a manufacturer—who may have caused your accident accountable. Our firm fights to obtain compensation for all of our clients’ medical expenses, their lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, scarring, and other damages.
Rollover accident causes
Any type of truck can rollover. This is especially true for commercial trucks. Some of the common rollover causes are:
- Traveling at a high speed, or recklessly
- Taking a curve too fast
- Improper steering
- Driver fatigue
- Driving while distracted
- Driving under the influence
- Swerving improperly
- A defective truck part
- Slippery roads
- Debris on the road
- Uneven or poorly maintained roads
- Construction sites that do not have proper warnings of their existence
- Contact with another vehicle
Why rollovers are so dangerous
In addition to the initial likelihood of injury or death to the truck driver, rollovers create additional problems such as:
- Cargo can spill. When cargo spills, other vehicles may not be able to get out of the way and may collide with the cargo, veer off the road, or strike other vehicles.
- The truck can roll into your vehicle. Trucks that rollover do not just stay stationary. They often move while they are rolling over. This means the truck can crash into other cars–often with tragic results.
- The truck can roll over into the roadway. Cars, in both directions, may not be able to stop or may have difficulty getting out of the way of the truck. These vehicles may strike the truck, other vehicles, or property off the road. They may even roll over themselves.
