Have You Been Involved in a Rollover Truck Accident?
Although rollover accidents are not as common as other types of accidents, rollovers can result in significantly more damage to the truck or passenger vehicle, and cause much more severe injuries to the occupants. Large semi tractor-trailer trucks are prone to rollovers, especially when going around curves. Depending on the slope, the weight of the truck, and the angle of the curve, a truck can find itself in a rollover situation even at a fairly low rate of speed. The news regularly features stories of rollover truck accidents that occur on highway on- and off-ramps.
Some trucks, such as tanker trucks, are even more susceptible to rollovers due to their high centers of gravity. Overloading a truck beyond its legal weight limits can also produce instability that may lead to a rollover when cornering, even at very slow speeds. However, the most common cause of a truck rollover accident is excessive speed while turning, which destabilizes the vehicle. The taller the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over in an accident – a trend that people can also see in the highly publicized reports of consumer SUV rollover rates.
