Commercial Truck Jack Knives & Rollovers
Call Our Aggressive Marietta Truck Accident Lawyers Now
Have you or a loved one been hurt in a dangerous 18 wheeler accident? Because
of their massive size and weight, commercial trucks are susceptible to
“jack knifing” and “rolling over.” This happens
where the driver steers his tractor trailer in a manner that causes the
truck to tip on its side. Usually the driver’s inattention is what
usually leads to the abrupt steering maneuvers that lead to a rollover.
There are safety precautions truck drivers and shipping companies are required
to follow in order to avoid these types of accidents. If a trucking company
fails to properly train their driver, then we will hold them accountable.
When these precautions are not taken and someone is hurt, victims may
be eligible for compensation.

What Causes 18 Wheeler Rollover Crashes?
Evidence of wrongdoing by the truck driver or the trucking company is key
to asserting a successful truck rollover claim. There are numerous rollover
causes that can be identified as a display of negligence in these cases.
Just some of the common causes in a truck rollover include:
- Impaired driving (alcohol, drugs, fatigue etc.)
- Excessive speed
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Driver error/Inattention
- Vehicle malfunction
If you believe that any of these causes (or any other negligent actions)
contributed to your truck rollover injuries, then our firm is available
to speak with you. Jones & Swanson is ready to examine the circumstances
of your accident and, if necessary, craft a compelling claim for maximum
compensation on your behalf.
