We Have What It Takes To Fight For You
Truck rollovers are one of the most serious and dangerous truck accidents that can occur on the highways in the New Orleans area, as well as across the country. Because of the huge size and weight of these commercial trucks, rollover accidents often lead to catastrophic or fatal injuries to passengers and drivers, alike, who are in the smaller vehicles involved in the incident. Even if you are a cautious driver around big rigs, tractor trailers, and 18 wheelers, a driver who has an out-of-control commercial truck can leave an innocent person suffering a catastrophic injury or a loved one dying as a result of negligence. These cases can and will be resolved by filing a wrongful death claim. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a truck rollover accident, it is imperative that you have high quality, experienced legal representation.

Causes of Truck Rollovers
Many rollover accidents happen as a result of truck driver negligence. Even though the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) holds drivers to high standards of safety, some prioritize profits over adherence to federal regulations, resulting in jeopardizing others on the road. The most common causes of truck rollovers due to negligence include:
- Driver distraction
- Driver fatigue
- Excessive load
- Incorrectly loaded truck
- Failure to maintain the truck
- Reckless driving (e.g. turning too quickly, following too closely, etc.)
- Truck part or safety system failure
Hazardous road and weather conditions require that truck drivers exercise additional caution that will ensure safety. These weather conditions can include wet or snowy roads, steep inclines or declines, winding roads, construction zones, damaged road surfaces, and heavy traffic, all of which can occur on the highways leading into and out of New Orleans, a common location for serious truck accidents.
