Objects in the Road and Truck Rollovers

Objects in the road pose a threat to everyone, from those driving four door sedans to 18 wheeler trucks. For vehicles like pick-up trucks, the threat of objects in the road can be particularly dangerous due to the high fatality rate of pick-up truck rollovers. While it’s not possible to completely prevent having objects in the road at all times due to outside factors such as weather and accidents, they should be addressed as soon as possible by those responsible for highway safety. When objects in the road such as fallen trees or branches are allowed to remain for a long period of time, an eventual rollover accident is very likely.

If you or someone you love was involved in a truck rollover accident due to debris or objects in the road, you could be entitled to financial compensation from the municipal agency responsible for providing safe roads.

Common Objects in the Road

Roadway debris can come from a variety of sources. No matter where it comes from, however, if it causes an accident, those responsible for the debris or for roadway safety may be held liable. Some common roadway obstacles include:

  • Fallen trees or branches
  • Litter
  • Fallen objects from improperly loaded trucks
  • Debris from previous accidents
  • Road construction debris

Clear road conditions are an important factor in keeping drivers safe. If obstacles in the road are not taken care of, innocent truck drivers may end up causing a rollover by hitting or attempting to avoid the debris.
