One of the most dangerous types of semi-truck accidents occur when a truck rolls over onto its side or even onto its roof. Known as rollover accidents, these accidents can cause serious and widespread damage and injury. When rollover accidents happen, they are often the result of negligence. Determining what caused the truck to rollover is often essential in establishing legal liability. Some of the most common causes of truck rollover accidents include:
- Improper braking
- Over steering
- Cornering too quickly
- Improperly loaded or unbalanced cargo
An experienced truck accident attorney can help you determine what caused your accident and also help hold the party or parties responsible liable for your injuries.

Personal injury claims are subject to a strict statute of limitations, meaning that there is a limited amount time in which a person can bring a claim.
