Involved In A Livonia Truck Accident?
Tank trucks, freight trucks, and other types of commercial cargo trucks intended for special transport have considerable limitations to go along with their unique capabilities. For example, bigger blind spots are a problem. They also often require two lanes to make a clean turn. More weight means more difficulty stopping quickly. A higher center of gravity is also a concern, because it contributes to a greater likelihood of a rollover.
Rollover Truck Accident
Rollovers often happen when a vehicle is making a turn too fast, but they can happen anywhere – even on a straight road. A sudden shift from hitting a curb, a soft berm, or stopping too quickly can dangerously upset a truck’s stability. An overwhelming majority of truck rollovers occur when there is a partial load; liquid cargo is especially a problem because the weight shifts so easily. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), driver error is the cause of 78% of truck rollover accidents.
