Common Causes of Truck Rollover Crashes

Truck rollover crashes result in thousands of injuries each year in the United States. Victims could suffer a variety of injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, lacerations, burn injuries, spinal cord trauma, soft tissue injuries, broken bones, accidental amputations, paralysis, and other catastrophic injuries.

The most common causes of truck rollovers are:

  1. Driver error. Driver inattention, drowsiness, and poor driving behavior could cause a rollover accident. In fact, it is estimated that driver error is at least partly responsible for more than 75% of all truck rollover crashes. Speeding, failing to maintain lane, and braking or accelerating suddenly could lead to a deadly accident. Drunk or distracted driving could also result in a truck rollover.
  2. Defective equipment. Poor maintenance on the truck itself has resulted in many rollover accidents. In one study conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), about 55% of all truck rollovers were caused by a brake defect. Truck drivers and maintenance crews have a responsibility to ensure the truck is in proper working condition before each trip.
  3. Improperly loaded cargo. Imbalanced and overloaded cargo could cause the center of gravity to shift while the truck is moving. For trucks transporting liquid cargo, the sloshing of the liquid could throw off the balance of the truck. This could cause the cargo to tip over, resulting in a rollover crash.

Whether the truck driver, trucking company, maintenance company, or other party is responsible, we will help you pursue justice in a personal injury lawsuit. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in North Carolina is 3 years. Our Charlotte truck accident lawyers will conduct a detailed investigation to determine who is responsible for the crash, and will help you file a claim in a timely manner.
