Truck Rollover Due to Driver Error
Truck rollover accidents are typically highly dangerous and far more destructive than non-rollover accidents or rollover accidents involving normal vehicles. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, nearly 45% of all fatal pick-up truck accidents involve truck rollovers. That is why driver competency for both truck drivers and those who share the road with trucks is so important. Unfortunately, poor driving and careless mistakes, known broadly as “driver error,” are a major contributor to truck rollovers.
If you or a loved one was involved in a serious truck rollover accident caused by another driver’s error, you could be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering as well as medical costs and lost wages.

Types of Driver Error
Driver error can mean many things. Driver error does not mean that a person’s behavior was intentionally reckless, rather that carelessness, fatigue, or other factors caused them to make mistakes or poor decisions on the road. Some types of driver error include:
- Running traffic lights or stop signs
- Failure to yield
- Distracted driving
- Failing to use turn signals
If another driver’s failure to follow through with safety and attentiveness while driving has caused you to be involved in a truck rollover accident, legal action may be justified.
