Cleveland Rollover Truck Accident Attorneys

Semi trucks should not roll over. If you or a loved one was hurt in an accident caused by a truck rolling over, it is likely that some form of negligence took place. Determining exactly what went wrong can be the difference between proving and not proving your case. It is essential to find out the cause in order to hold the party accountable for the serious injuries suffered in the rollover truck accident. At Caravona & Berg, our experience and proven track record of success can help you get the compensation you deserve.

 

Working With Experts to Get Results

As an established law firm, we have access to a network of experts, including engineers and accident reconstruction experts. These experts are often necessary in cases like these, and we use them to find out exactly what caused the rollover accident.There could be many causes. Some are fairly simple. This may include speeding, or taking a turn too fast. In other cases, the cause of the accident may be more complex. Perhaps the driver was speeding, but the speeding alone did not cause the accident. Perhaps it was a defective road condition that caused the truck driver to lose control and cause a rollover accident. Perhaps fatigue caused the driver to lose focus on the road. We will find out.

 
Truck Loading Errors

With the help of our experts, we frequently discover that the accident was not the truck driver's fault but the fault of the party in charge of loading the truck. Overloaded trucks and improperly loaded trucks with shifting loads can cause rollovers. We know how to find out, and we know how to take action to get results. back to top

Cleveland Truck Driver Log Errors Attorneys
Ohio Truck Logging Violation Lawyers

Truck drivers are required to keep a log that shows his or her driving activity. The log should show when and where the truck driver started driving and stopped driving, the number of miles driven per day and other similar information. This is one of the first and most important things that an experienced lawyer looks at when investigating a truck accident, because it will show whether the driver was driving too fast or had spent too many hours behind the wheel and was suffering from driver fatigue. That is, it will show that information if the log is accurate.

 

The attorneys at Caravona & Berg know how reliable logs really are and how they can be manipulated by at-fault operators.

 

Looking Beyond the Log

A truck driver's job is to drive from point A to point B. They are constantly under pressure to maintain a very tight schedule and they don't make any more money by taking their time. Unfortunately, this can lead to disaster. This can lead to drivers falsifying log books or keeping two sets of log books. For that reason, our lawyers do not take truck driver logs at face value.

 

Instead, we will have the truck's computer analyzed. The computer will show when the truck was moving and when it wasn't. In many cases, we find that this information does not sync up with the truck driver log. In other words, we find clear evidence that the truck driver was negligently breaking the rules he or she was supposed to follow, and that led to an accident.  back to top

 

Sometimes, we do not need the truck's computer. Our investigation may reveal that the truck driver kept a second log, one with accurate information. While the fake one was meant for the police, the real one was shown to the trucking company to ensure full payment. We use all of this evidence to prove negligence and get you full and fair compensation.

Cleveland Overloaded Trucks Accident LawyersAkron Trucking Accident AttorneysIn trucking accidents, it's possible for other parties to be at fault besides the driver. Many truck accidents are the result of shifting loads in overloaded or improperly loaded trailers. This may have been performed by employee of another company. There are legal limits to how much weight a trailer can carry. Laws are in place specifically to prevent the types of jackknife and rollover accidents that can occur when a truck is overloaded. Unfortunately, these laws are often broken, and the stress on the trucks results in an accident.

At the law firm of Caravona & Berg, we're committed to finding out who was responsible for a truck accident. If we determine the accident was caused by overloading, we will find the party responsible for loading and hold them accountable. We are committed to helping you pursue the compensation you deserve and are entitled to by law.  back to top

The Importance of Proper Investigation

To a lay person, it is impossible to discern a properly loaded truck from an improperly loaded truck, simply because the cargo is hidden away. Even if the cargo is visible on a flatbed trailer, it is difficult to determine if the trailer is overloaded unless you know what to look for. That is why we work with experts on these matters to make certain we have all of the facts necessary to build a strong case.
