Main Causes of Truck Rollover Accidents in Tennessee

Surely you have noticed many of the news reports regarding supply chain issues across the United States. One of the reasons for such issues is a lack of experienced truck drivers necessary to deliver goods and products on time to consumers. With the lack of available drivers comes overworked and exhausted truck drivers. This in turn can lead to a significant increase in trucking accidents in Tennessee, including truck rollover claims.

Causes of Truck Rollover Accidents

Truck rollover accidents are extraordinarily dangerous and destructive, especially when they involve another vehicle. The Chiozza Law Firm has handled rollover cases in Tennessee for over 50 years. We have investigated many rollover claims and have found the main contributing factors to rollover cases are the following:

  • Speeding
  • Driving too fast for the present road conditions, usually when a driver will approach a turn too quickly given their load capacity and truck size
  • Drowsiness caused by overwork
  • Weather conditions such has snow, rain or high winds that can contribute to rollovers
  • Load shifts whereby the freight shift to far to one side causing a rollover.Loads must be carefully secured and properly balanced to prevent shifting.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including prescription drugs.
