Rollover truck accidents in Dallas often cause very serious injuries to drivers and passengers in other vehicles. Concussions, painful back injuries, and whiplash can easily occur due to a rollover accident on I-45 or I-20. Fatalities can also easily occur due to such serious accidents.

What is a rollover accident?
A rollover accident refers to a crash in which the vehicle rolls over onto its side. In cases involving large trucks, rollover accidents can be particularly serious. Because such large vehicles are often traveling at a high rate of speed, they may slide on their side a long distance and crash into many smaller vehicles. As a result, many truck rollovers cause multi-vehicle accidents.
Why do rollover accidents happen?
Rollover truck accidents often occur for two main reasons – the truck driver was doing something they should not have been doing or there’s a mechanical defect with the truck. Examples include:
- Speeding truck drivers who lose control of the truck.
- Inexperienced truck drivers who misjudge a turn or offramp.
- Reckless drivers who fail to take into account hazardous weather conditions.
- Distracted drivers, including texting truck drivers, who lose control of the truck.
- Tired truck drivers who fall asleep at the wheel, causing the truck to roll over.
- Poorly maintained trucks, especially trucks with defective brakes.
Another common cause of rollover truck accidents involves the contents in the truck moving in transit, causing the truck to become unstable. This type of rollover accident is especially common in crashes involving tractor-trailers.
How much is my case worth?
Your rollover truck accident claim can easily be worth thousands of dollars or more. The value depends on many different factors, including the total cost of your medical care, vehicle repairs, and lost income if you cannot work while you’re recovering from your truck accident injury.
What you might not realize is your settlement claim or verdict should take into account any future anticipated expenses related to your rollover accident. Even if such expenses occur years after your accident, you should be compensated for them. That’s why it’s critical that you have an attorney who understands how the system works and who can demand the maximum financial compensation you deserve.
Who’s responsible for paying for my accident?
Texas has an at-fault insurance system. This simply means the at-fault party is responsible for compensating injury victims for their accident-related expenses. What makes rollover truck accidents – and truck accidents in general – different from many other accident claims is there may be more than one at-fault party. As a result, you may be able to seek compensation from:
- The truck driver who caused your rollover accident.
- The trucking company that employs the driver.
- The company that loaded the truck, especially if the truck was improperly loaded and rolled over due to the contents in the truck shifting during transit.
- The company that manufactured the truck or certain truck parts, especially if there was a tire blowout or a mechanical problem.
Make your case count. Choose The Marye Law Firm
Injury claims involving commercial truck drivers can be complicated. Even if a truck driver clearly caused your crash, don’t simply assume you will be fairly compensated for your rollover accident. Instead, they (and their insurance company) will often do everything they can to deny your accident claim.
