Semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles are involved in accidents regularly, often resulting in serious injury to passengers and drivers of passenger cars. Due to the sheer size and weight of commercial trucks, they present a significant danger to other motorists. There are certain types of accidents to which trucks are particularly prone, such as rollover accidents. These types of accidents can cause significant injuries that may require long-term hospitalization or medical care and can affect a person for the rest of his or her life. Georgia law allows people who are injured as a result of negligence to recover through a personal injury lawsuit. The attorneys of Shane Smith Law understand how important it is for our clients to obtain justice, and work hard to get the highest possible settlement or award in each case we handle.
Rollover accidents occur when a truck loses control and rolls over onto its side or its roof. When truck roll over, they can cause serious and widespread damage, even affecting people, not in the immediate vicinity of the accident. Some of the more common reasons that trucks are involved in rollover accidents include:
- High winds
- Brake failure
- Taking turns too fast
- Distracted driving
- Driver error
- Equipment failure
These are just a few of the reasons that a rollover accident may occur. Finding out what caused an accident can be essential in establishing liability, which is why it is so important for truck accident victims to retain the services of an experienced Fayette County truck accident lawyer.
