Truck Rollover Accidents
When an 18 wheeler rolls over due to dangerous road condition, collision or reckless driving, the consequences are sometimes catastrophic to a driver, passenger, or pedestrian nearby. A truck rollover usually results in one of three outcomes:
(1) The truck rolls over onto the road and spills hazardous material onto the road. Hazardous chemicals may start a fire, or large objects may obstruct the road without giving other drivers time to stop their vehicles before crashing.
(2) The truck rolls over onto another vehicle. This is the most catastrophic of all three scenarios, since the impact of a truck weighing several tons is enough to crush an entire vehicle and passengers.
(3) The truck rolls over onto the road, causing other drivers to crash into the vehicle if there is not enough time to stop.
Any of these three can easily result in horrendous injuries to the victim. Such injuries include paralysis, broken or fractured bones, internal injuries, brain injuries, back and spinal cord injuries, permanent scarring or disfigurement, and permanent disability.
