What Happens in a Truck Rollover Accident?
In a truck rollover accident, a truck, tractor, or trailer rolls over onto its side — or upside down — in the middle of the roadway. This can happen for a variety of reasons. Potential causes of truck rollover accidents in New York City include the following:
● Exceeding the speed limit that is posted for trucks on a particular highway or roadway
● Driving too fast in bad weather conditions, such as in ice or snow
● Proceeding around a sharp turn too quickly
● Truck brake failure
● Exceeding load limits or not loading the cargo onto the trailer properly, causing the vehicle to become top heavy
● Stopping too quickly
When a truck overturns in the road, such as on a busy highway, a large car pile-up or chain reaction collision could occur.
Who is Responsible for Truck Rollover Accidents?
Truck driver error is one common cause of a truck rollover accident. When a truck driver misjudges his or her speed or drives too fast in bad weather, the truck could roll over in the road. In some instances, a trucking company could also be to blame for a truck rollover accident. This is because trucking companies are responsible for employing drivers who will operate their vehicles safely and carefully at all times.
Finally, in cases where faulty or defective truck braking systems cause an accident, the truck parts manufacturer could be fully or partially at fault. An experienced New York City truck rollover accident lawyer could help you determine the potentially responsible party or parties in your accident case.
