Truck Rollover Accident Lawyer in Albuquerque

Albuquerque Truck Accident Attorney

Because of the size of a semi-truck, the damage that can be done if it is involved in an accident can be very detrimental and even fatal. Semi-trucks are common inhabitants of major freeways and highways as they are hauling cargo from one state to another, sometimes over many days of driving.

What Can Cause Rollover Accidents for Trucks?

  • Fatigue: After many hours, a truck driver can become fatigued and even become negligent. There are laws called the hours of service regulations, which designate how long a truck driver can operate before they must stop and rest and they are put in place in order to minimize truck driver fatigue.
  • Distractions: If a truck driver does not see an obstacle, then they will probably hit it if it is in their direct line of travel. Hitting a small obstacle can cause the driver to lose control, to overcompensate and possibly even roll the truck. When a semi-truck rolls, not only is the cargo they are carrying damaged, but anyone in their way could be very seriously injured.
  • Unsecured or overweight cargo: There are laws that limit the amount of weight a commercial vehicle can carry. This is important because the heavier the vehicle, the easier it is to lose control and the more difficult braking becomes. Cargo that is not secured properly can also tip over a truck and cause rollover crashes.
