Few Things on the Road Are More Dangerous Than a Tractor-Trailer or Large Truck

A fully loaded tractor-trailer is vulnerable to rollovers due to its size and weight. That’s why truck drivers are expected to follow safety precautions in order to reduce the risk of rollovers. Some of the most frequent causes of Watertown truck rollovers include:

  • Excessive speed, especially around curves
  • Driver distraction, which leads to slow reactions and rapid, panicked steering
  • Overloading or improperly balanced loads
  • Failure to maintain brakes
  • Failure to adjust to adverse driving conditions, such as rain or snow

Trucking companies have a legal responsibility to train and supervise their drivers to follow safety precautions. But too often, they put profits ahead of safety, hiring inexperienced drivers or incentivizing risky behavior such as speeding or skipping rest breaks. Our proactive Watertown rollover truck crash attorneys fight to hold them accountable.
