Truck Rollovers


Truck Rollovers

Our New Orleans Truck Accident Lawyers Have What It Takes to Fight for You

Truck rollovers are one of the most serious and dangerous types of truck accidents that can occur on roads and highways in the New Orleans area, as well as across the country. Because of the huge size and weight of these commercial trucks, rollover accidents often lead to catastrophic or fatal injuries to those in smaller vehicles involved in the incident. Even if you are a cautious driver around big-rigs, tractor-trailers, and 18-wheelers, a driver who has an out-of-control truck can leave an innocent person suffering life-altering consequences.

If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a truck rollover accident, it is imperative that you have high-quality, experienced legal representation.

Common Causes of Truck Rollovers

Many rollover accidents happen as a result of truck driver negligence. Even though the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) holds drivers to high standards of safety, some prioritize profits over adherence to federal regulations.

The most common causes of truck rollovers include:

  • Driver distraction
  • Driver fatigue
  • Excessive load
  • Incorrectly loaded truck
  • Failure to maintain the truck
  • Reckless driving (e.g. turning too quickly, following too closely, etc.)
  • Speeding
  • Truck part or safety system failure

Additionally, hazardous road and weather conditions require that truck drivers exercise extra caution to ensure safety.

Hazardous weather conditions can include:

  • Wet or snowy roads
  • Steep inclines or declines
  • Winding roads
  • Construction zones
  • Damaged road surfaces
  • Heavy traffic

These conditions are common in New Orleans and the surrounding communities, leading to numerous truck accidents in the area each year.
