Truck rollovers

Big rigs roll easily. If a truck goes around a curve too fast, it will roll over. Trucks can go over in a curve even without going too fast if their rear tires strike something (likerepparttar curb) while cornering. Trucks can still roll over at 5 mph especially if backing up while being jackknifed. Some rollovers happen when drivers try to return torepparttar 119253 road after putting a tire offrepparttar 119254 pavement. They can rut in soft ground or catch a pavement separation and roll over.


Truck Jackknifing

The rig jackknifes whenrepparttar 119255 drive axle brakes lock up. Steering axle brakes provide 12 percent ofrepparttar 119256 total braking of a loaded vehicle. Trucks jackknife sooner or later regardless of whatrepparttar 119257 steering axle does even ifrepparttar 119258 steering wheels are pointed straight ahead. Road crown or left/right imbalances will cause jackknifing ifrepparttar 119259 truck slides long enough. Jackknifing will most likely cause a rollover.

Oncerepparttar 119260 brakes are locked, directional control atrepparttar 119261 axle becomes lost. Sooner or later a sideways pull develops that affectsrepparttar 119262 directional stability ofrepparttar 119263 vehicle which may cause a rollover.


Never attempt to negotiate on your own behalf with a trucking company after a truck accident. Most trucking companies are highly skilled at truck accident investigation and claims practice. These adjusters representrepparttar 119264 truck company -- not you. Never make any statements or sign any releases for medical records or employment records. Oftenrepparttar 119265 medical release allowsrepparttar 119266 adjuster to talk torepparttar 119267 doctors without you or anyone being present.

Truck companies have accident investigators that are on call and dispatched torepparttar 119268 scene ofrepparttar 119269 crash as soon asrepparttar 119270 trucking company learns about an accident. Whilerepparttar 119271 families ofrepparttar 119272 accident victims are tending to medical and hospital care and funeral arraignments,repparttar 119273 trucking company is busy investigatingrepparttar 119274 accident and gearing up their defense. This is why victims of large truck accidents need a knowledgeable team of truck accident attorneys and investigators on their side…fighting for their rights.
