Rollover Truck Accident Lawyers in Beaumont

The 18 Wheeler Attorney in Southeast Texas

Semi-truck on its side after a rollover accident

Truck accidents involving rollovers can be particularly violent in terms of the damage they can inflict on truckers and occupants of passenger cars. A rollover occurs when a vehicle tips onto its side or flips onto its roof. In rollover trucking accidents, the vehicle may cause collisions and these crashes may also lead to affected vehicles rolling over as well.

Due to the size and weight of 18-wheelers and other heavy commercial trucks, the smaller vehicles generally sustain the most damage. Rollover accidents have a higher death rate than other types of traffic accidents. In truck accidents involving smaller vehicles, the passenger vehicle occupants are more often killed or catastrophically injured over the trucker.

Examples of a non-tripping rollover include taking a turn at too high a speed or trying to avoid something with a sudden steering maneuver.
