Common Causes of Truck Rollovers
There are a number of factors that come to play in truck rollover accidents,
but many of them are avoidable when certain safety procedures are followed.
The leading causes of truck rollovers include:
- Excessive speeds
- Erratic lane changes
- Unsafe speeds during a curve or turn
- Improper maintenance (poor brakes, underinflated tires etc.)
- Road conditions such as steep downhill grades and sharp curves
- Lack of driver training or experience, and lack of familiarity with the road
Semi-trucks are top heavy and are therefore more inclined to rollover when
the truck driver errors. When factors such as an overloaded truck, driver
distraction, or even unfamiliarity with the road are added to the equation,
the chances of a truck rollover increase dramatically.
