Truck Rollover Accidents
Experienced Nebraska truck accident attorneys fight for your compensation
When a truck’s wheels lift off the road, that split second can result in a horrifying crash. Suddenly, a truck can topple to the ground on its side or flip entirely upside down. Cargo is at risk for spillage. Between the sheer impact of a truck hitting the pavement and the added risk of a cargo spill, the dangers of a rollover truck accident are incredibly high.

Common causes of rollover accidents
Truck drivers are not always the most diligent when it comes to driver responsibility. Safety measures can be ignored. Some drivers don’t get enough sleep. Others are overworked. Crowded highways and tight deadlines for delivery can inspire driving behaviors that are far from safe, such as:
- Traveling at a high speed on a curved highway or roadway
- Brakes that are in poor condition
- Distracted drivers
- Driver fatigue/falling asleep at the wheel
- Sharp turns with heavy loads of cargo
These driver errors are preventable. Truck drivers and companies often push themselves past their healthy limits, allowing tired drivers to be on the road with mainstream traffic. Distractions like texting, fiddling with the radio or GPS, or dozing off can be fatal.
We hold trucking companies responsible
Any car in the path of a rolled-over truck is in serious danger. Cars can easily be totaled and severe injuries can befall their occupants. Spinal cord injuries, concussions and bone fractures are all too common in these types of accidents. So are fatalities.
Spilled cargo can hit or hinder other traffic. If the truck is carrying hazardous material, it has the possibility of catching fire, damaging roads and shutting them down as well. Trucking companies are responsible for the competency of their drivers and the safety of their journeys.
