Truck Rollovers Mobile & Baldwin Counties
Recent studies have indicated that about 55 percent of all semi-truck driver fatalities occur due to a rollover accident – furthermore, as Alabama’s Mobile & Baldwin counties are known for handling higher volumes of commercial traffic, there is an even greater chance of a serious motor vehicle crash occurring in those areas.
With this in mind, truck drivers carrying either commercial, industrial, and/or consumer products throughout Mobile & Baldwin, are naturally at a greater risk due to the weight and size of their motor vehicle. In fact, about 600 truck drivers die each and every year in a highway accident. Truck rollovers, in particular, present an elevated level of danger to both the driver and the surrounding vehicles on the road.

Truck Rollover Accident Quick Facts
Alabama’s congested roads can be a precursor to a variety of types of auto accidents. Semi-truck accidents, in particular, tend to indicate increased severity in both potential injury and property damage. Tractor-trailers have a greater tendency to rollover in the event of a crash, leading to excessive damage, especially in the case where hazardous material is being transported.
Listed below are a few quick facts about truck rollover accidents, some of which include (but not limited to):
- Rollover accidents affect only 3 percent of passenger vehicles involved
- However, about one-third of all occupant fatalities are represented by truck rollovers
- While slow to accept the technology, truck systems have available sensors that monitor any weight shifts in carry loads
- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is undergoing a review of the sensor technology for a potential government mandate
Truck Accident Representation
There are some vehicles on the roads that are so poorly designed that their center of gravity causes them to rollover easily, even just when swerving to avoid a hazard on the road. Thankfully, in recent years, many of these vehicles have been recalled due the danger to the consumer.
However, if you have suffered an injury accident in which your SUV or van rolled over, it is important that the case is fully investigated to determine whether the manufacturer can be held accountable in an injury claim and be forced to pay you for the injuries and other damages suffered.
