Truck Rollover Accidents

Causes of Truck Rollover Accidents

Semi-trucks are common on the highways in the Fort Lauderdale area. While most of these truckers follow the law, some seek cost-cutting measures that will increase the speed and quantity of cargo that they can deliver in any given shipment. This can pose hazards for ordinary drivers and their passengers, who are forced to share the road with these large trucks. A rollover is one of the most disastrous types of truck accidents. One of the ways truckers maximize their efficiency is to extend the cargo trailer as far as possible, sometimes linking a pair of trailers 75 feet in length.

The sheer size of a tractor trailer, coupled with an extremely high center of gravity and weights exceeding 40 tons, leads to a situation where rollovers are likely to happen and hard to avoid. Trailers are often overloaded, sometimes exceeding legal weight limits, which contributes to the instability of the vehicle. When truckers enter curves too fast or hit the brakes too hard, the entire rig can jackknife and flip over, demolishing anything and everything in the way. A Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer can help you with your claim if you or a family member has suffered any type of injury or wrongful death in a rollover accident.

Standing Up Against Negligence

A truck rollover can cause injuries from broken bones and spinal cord injuries to brain injuries, paralysis or death. Such a catastrophe could often have been avoided and when your life has been changed for the worse, the negligent party must be held accountable. At Weinstein & Scharf, P.A., we help our clients file a claim against the trucking firm's insurance company or other liable party to make sure that they pay enough of a settlement to compensate our client for medical bills, current and future, as well as lost wages and other economic losses. Damages for pain and suffering will also be sought. When you come to our firm, we will meet with you directly. Your case is deserves the best legal representation possible, and our firm is experienced and has an impressive record of success.
