What Is a Truck Rollover Accident?

A rollover accident occurs when an 18-wheel truck rolls on its side. These types of accidents can have many causes, including the following:

  • Driver negligence
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Bad road conditions
  • Poor maintenance
  • Unsecured loads
  • Improper loading
  • Overloading

Rollover accidents can be classified into four different types:

  1. High-speed turns. Trucks are tall vehicles with a high center of gravity. If a fully loaded truck with a high center of gravity enters a turn with too much speed, it can easily fall on its side and roll over.
  2. Skids. Skids occur when a truck brakes too hard and locks up one of three sets of brakes on the vehicle. Once the lockup has occurred and the wheels begin to skid, the trailer can easily move out of line with the rest of the cab, strike another vehicle or obstacle in the road, and roll onto its side.
  3. Spins. Spins occur when all wheels on the truck lose traction, usually due to poor road conditions or poorly maintained tires, and the truck spins around on the roadway. Just as in skids, if the truck then hits an obstacle or another vehicle, it can roll over.
  4. Ramp rollovers. Ramp rollovers occur when a fully-loaded 18-wheeler goes over an uneven section of roadway, such as a construction zone, that causes the truck to lean to one side. If the truck is moving too fast when it hits this uneven road surface, the high side of the truck can leave the roadway, and the vehicle could roll over.

Possible Injuries from a Rollover Accident

Because over-the-road trucks are so big and heavy, any crash involving a car and a large truck is more dangerous than a crash involving only passenger cars. Trucks can weigh 20 times what a normal passenger car weighs, as well as being five times as long and nearly three times as high. A single truck rollover accident can cause a myriad of passenger car wrecks and injuries, as trucks that roll over have the potential to completely block a three-lane highway.

Some injuries that may occur in rollover accidents include:

  • Lacerations
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries
  • Burns
  • Internal injuries
  • Amputation
  • Disfigurement
  • Coma
  • Death

Why You Should Hire an Attorney for Your Rollover Accident

There are many reasons why hiring an attorney to assist in filing a claim for damages is important, and not all of them are immediately apparent.

Here are some of the ways hiring a lawyer for your accident can help you:

We know the law. Having a lawyer is about more than just knowing someone will represent you in court. Filing an injury claim takes knowledge and skill in injury law as well as experience with the claims process. We’ve done this hundreds of times before, and we will bring all our knowledge and skills to the table when we represent you. We can help you avoid novice mistakes and legal pitfalls that could delay your claim or get it denied outright.

We know the insurance companies. Insurance companies will do everything in their power to get you to accept a settlement that is less than what you deserve. They will take advantage of the fact that you need help now to cover medical bills or property damage and offer you fast cash to cover immediate post-accident expenses. They will ask why you wish to split your settlement with a lawyer or try to convince you that they just want to help and that they’ve got your best interests at heart. The reality is that they want to protect their bottom line by denying or reducing your claim for damages, and they are good at what they do. A capable lawyer will be able to recognize these tactics and deal with them accordingly.

We know damages. Estimating the right amount of compensation to request for your injuries can be tricky, simply because most people aren’t familiar with how damages work. Rhode Island injury law allows you to request compensation for more than just physical damages. Losses like emotional distress or loss of enjoyment of life are intangible non-economic damages and are just as important as lost wages or property damage. We can help you get compensation for all your injuries after a rollover accident, including the ones no one can see.

We have a reputation. Sending a demand letter to an insurance company on our letterhead sends a clear signal that you intend to get the full amount of compensation you’ve requested. We are one of the top injury firms in Rhode Island, and the insurance companies know our name. Hiring us to represent you shows them that they can’t take advantage of you by offering a low settlement.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Attorney Cost?

Most injury firms understand that no one plans for the day they’ll be in a rollover truck accident or become financially strained by hospital bills or damage to their property. That’s why we work on a contingency fee basis.

A contingency fee plan works like this: you pay absolutely nothing upfront. No fees, no costs.

If we are not successful in getting you some kind of compensation, either through a settlement or verdict, you pay nothing. Not a dime. If we are successful, we take an agreed-upon percentage of your settlement or award. This allows you to have quality legal counsel without having to worry about how to pay for it now.
