Truck Rollover Accidents in San Francisco
Were You Injured by a Negligent Truck Driver in California?
The trucking and transportation industry is vital to America's economy. Transporting food, clothes and other goods is essential and creates jobs for hardworking people. While the massive commercial trucks that share our highways and streets are crucial to the economy, the fact remains that these vehicles can be dangerous if they are not properly operated and maintained.
A collision with one of these 80,000-pound vehicles traveling at high speed due to a tired driver or a drunk driver can have terrible and tragic consequences for innocent drivers and their passengers.
Truck Accident Statistics
Tractor trailer accidents lead to about 3,700 deaths every year. When one of these trucks is involved in a rollover accident, it still poses a tremendous danger to other motorists even if no collision has taken place. Trucks often carry dangerous cargo including flammable or toxic materials. A truck that has gone out of control in a rollover is a dangerous obstacle that creates a hazard as other motorists will be forced to react and avoid it putting them at risk for collisions with other vehicles.
Truck rollovers commonly occur on highway or freeway exits due to a truck driver travelling too fast and misjudging the curve. Passenger vehicles attempting to use the same exit are at immediate risk. Other causes of a rollover may be an improperly loaded vehicle causing instability, speeding, under-inflated tires, brake failure or reckless driving. Rollovers are avoidable accidents and the accomplished and dedicated law firm of Bostwick & Peterson, LLP. stands ready to assist you in holding drivers and transport companies to account for their negligence. An accident can lead to severe injuries, leaving you with astronomical medical bills and lost wages due to your injuries.
