Truck Roll-Over Accident Lawyers in Houston, TX

Truck roll-over accidents occur with alarming frequency. According to government data, on average, there are more than 40 roll-over accidents in the United States every single day. If you have been involved in a roll-over accident, you likely will not be surprised to learn that many of these accidents result in debilitating – and sometimes fatal – injuries.

At Morrow & Sheppard LLP, we represent victims of truck roll-over accidents in the Houston area and throughout Texas, Louisiana and the rest of the country. If you have been injured or lost a loved one, you could be entitled to significant compensation. But, without experienced legal representation, you are likely to receive far less than you are rightfully owed. We have the knowledge, skills and resources necessary to take on the trucking companies and their insurers, and we will not stop fighting until we have secured the compensation you deserve.

Common Factors Leading to Truck Roll-Over Accidents

There are numerous factors that can lead to truck roll-over accidents and many of them are grounds for victims and their families to seek compensation for their losses. Some of the most common causes of truck roll-over accidents include the following:

Driving Too Fast

When it comes to large commercial trucks, driving too fast does not necessarily mean exceeding the speed limit. Truck drivers who approach on-ramps, off-ramps and other curves with too much speed will often be at fault for causing roll-over accidents.

Other Forms of Driver Error

Driving a large truck requires constant and careful attention to the truck driver’s surroundings and the road ahead. In addition to driving too fast, when truck drivers are drunk, distracted, fatigued or even asleep behind the wheel, they are at greater risk for causing a roll-over accident.

Improperly-Loaded Cargo

Cargo that has not been properly secured or that makes a truck too top-heavy is often a factor in roll-over accidents. Trucks carrying liquid cargo (such fuel tankers) can be particularly prone to rolling over as well, and their operators must be careful to ensure that they do not cause dangerous accidents on the road.

Poor Truck Maintenance

There are several maintenance issues that can cause trucks to roll over. For example, worn brakes can contribute to trucks entering curves too fast, and tires that are not fully inflated can increase the likelihood of a roll-over if a truck jackknifes or skids.

We Can Help You Seek Just Compensation

Due to their high centers of gravity, tractor trailers, 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks are already at increased risk for roll-overs. When truck drivers and trucking companies make careless mistakes, the results too often can be devastating. We will investigate to get to the bottom of what caused your accident, and we will fight to hold the responsible parties accountable for your losses.
