Truck Rollover Accidents Can Be Devastating

Our experienced attorneys get results for the injured

Every year in Georgia and throughout the country, people suffer serious and sometimes fatal injuries in rollover accidents. In this type of truck accident, a tractor-trailer weighing tens of thousands of pounds rolls over and crashes into a car or other passenger vehicle. The consequences of these collisions can be devastating.

If you or a loved one was injured in a rollover accident, you probably have a lot of questions. You want answers, but you may not be sure where to look. At Fried Goldberg LLC, more than 95% of our practice is dedicated to trucking litigation. Our truck accident lawyers have seen firsthand how collisions like these can impact entire families. We’re ready to help.

How do truck rollover accidents happen?

One of the most common causes of rollover accidents is human error. A truck can rollover as a result of:

  • Steering issues
  • Loss of control
  • Speeding
  • Improper loading of cargo
  • Distracting driving
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Texting while driving
  • Sudden lane changes

A rollover accident is extremely dangerous for drivers and passengers of nearby vehicles and can easily result in serious injury or fatalities. Any vehicle or object in the truck’s path is endangered during a rollover. Not only can the truck become a hazard, but so can its cargo.

At our firm, we have zero tolerance for negligence that leads to accidents that leave people seriously hurt. Drivers, trucking companies, and other parties that engage in negligent behavior are actively choosing to endanger all who are within their vicinity. We know how to investigate rollover accidents to identify negligent parties and fight to hold them accountable.

A truck rollover crash can leave you seriously injured

You don’t need statistics to know that an accident with a semi-truck has the potential to be life-changing. If you are fortunate enough to walk away from such a collision with minor injuries such as scrapes, cuts or broken bones, your recovery time will be much shorter. But more common serious injuries include:

  • Back and neck Injuries (dislocated discs, whiplash)
  • Head and brain injuries (traumatic brain trauma can occur, which is often life-altering)
  • Internal injuries (organs like the liver, kidneys, and spleen can become damaged)
  • Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  • Wrongful death

Seeking medical attention immediately following an accident is not only critical for your health and well-being, but also for the overall success of your claim, should you choose to file one. Whether you choose to go to the emergency room or see your family doctor, be sure you are examined by a professional physician as soon as possible.

Only a proper medical assessment can determine the extent of your injuries. Remember that some injuries may take a day or two to progress, such as those involving the head or brain. You could be seriously injured and just not aware; even a concussion should be carefully evaluated.

You deserve financial compensation for your losses

Medical expenses following a truck rollover accident can add up very quickly and soon become overwhelming. These can include the cost of ambulance services, diagnostic tests, imaging tests, surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, and home health care. You may also require multiple follow-up visits with doctors.

In addition, you may be unable to work because of your injuries, resulting in lost income. This can lead to financial stress, and you may not be sure what to do next.

Trucking companies and insurance carriers fight injury claims after a truck accident because they know there’s a lot of money at stake. Insurance companies will use many different tactics to try to get you to settle for less than you deserve. And they have teams of lawyers fighting for their best interests.

Put experience on your side to level the playing field

If you or someone you know was recently involved in a trucking accident, speaking with an experienced attorney with years of handling claims just like yours could make a world of difference for you and your family.

Semi rollover accidents continue to take place in Atlanta and throughout Georgia, despite awareness of the problem. People continue to avoid taking the necessary safety precautions to prevent these tragic incidents. A distracted or negligent semi-truck driver or other party may be to blame for your family’s suffering.

But big trucking companies and insurance companies have the advantage, and they know it.
