Commercial Truck Jack Knives & Rollovers
Call Our Experienced 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 when the driver steers his tractor trailer that causes the truck to tip on its side. Usually, the driver’s inattention is what leads to the abrupt steering maneuvers resulting in a rollover. There are safety precautions truck drivers and shipping companies must follow to avoid these types of accidents. If a trucking company fails to train their driver correctly, then we will hold the company accountable. When these precautions are not taken, and someone is hurt, victims may be eligible for compensation.

What Causes 18 Wheeler Rollover Crashes?

Just some of the common causes in a truck rollover include:
- Improper driver’s training
- Impaired driving (alcohol, drugs, fatigue, etc.)
- Excessive speed
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Driver error/Inattention
