Override Accidents in Louisiana
Call a New Orleans Truck Accident Attorney
Override truck accidents occur when the front of an 18-wheeler or big rig crashes into another vehicle and rides over that vehicle’s roof. The nature of this type of accident is similar to a rear-end crash, but the sheer size of these trucks makes these wrecks all the more devastating. Injury victims have sustained serious and debilitating injuries, and in some cases, have resulted in death.
It is important that if you or a loved one was hurt in an override accident or any other type of truck accident that you call an injury attorney right away to handle your case. Retaining an attorney at the onset of your case can ensure that your case is properly represented, and no stone is left unturned.
Why Do Override Accidents Occur?
Any collision with a truck accident can result in serious and even catastrophic injuries. A big rig has the power to crush a passenger vehicle, such as a car, motorcycle, and even a pedestrian. As a result, the injuries can range from traumatic brain injuries, which may be caused by the roof of the car becoming crushed, to fractures, internal organ damage, and back injuries.
Override accidents may be caused by the following:
- Tire blowout
- Reckless driving
- Traffic violations
- Driver fatigue
- Poor weather conditions
