Compensation for Survivors of Rollover Truck Crashes
Calculating the value of your trucking accident settlement can be challenging if you are still recovering. Typically, your settlement value is determined closer to the end of your treatment plan so that all medical costs can be accurately included. While your insurance adjuster focuses on the property damage aspect of things, as your lawyer, we will fight to recoup money for:
- Lost wages from missing work due to injury
- Stress and emotional pain
- Medical expenses associated with your accident recovery
- Physical pain
- If applicable, non-compensatory damages, also known as punitive damages
You have the right, as a victim of a truck accident, to demand compensation that covers both economic and non-economic losses.

Potential Accident Offenders in Your Truck Wreck Case
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) reports that speeding is the common cause of truck rollover accidents. However, speeding can be the result of something else occurring. When an accident occurs, the default train of thought is that the driver was negligent and is to blame.
We see a range of rollover accident cases throughout Oklahoma in which the truck driver may be at-fault 100% and some of which is shared or solely the responsibility of the following:
The Truck Driver
The driver may be held accountable for the collision if they were operating the vehicle negligently, breaking traffic laws, speeding, intoxicated, exhausted, or distracted.
The Trucking Company
The trucking company might be held accountable if they neglected to adequately train their drivers, or if they put unlawful pressure on their drivers to disregard federal regulation and drive for long amounts of time without stopping for a regulatory break.
The Commercial Vehicle’s Manufacturer
The manufacturer may be held accountable if a malfunctioning part or other mechanical issue contributed to the accident.
Other drivers or parties may be held accountable for their behavior of following too closely, cutting a truck off, or veering into their lane. If their actions resulted in a truck driver losing control and having an accident, a lawsuit can be filed against them.
The Loaders of the Cargo
The consequences of improper loading on a truck can be severe. The cargo company is in charge of making sure that a truck is loaded uniformly and within its weight limit.
The Service Team
A rollover crash may be caused by improperly maintained brakes, old tires, or improperly diagnosed problems. A vehicle must be maintained in accordance with the law in order to be used.
Liability in a truck accident can be complicated to determine, so an investigation by an experienced truck accident lawyer may be necessary.
