Belleville Override Trucking Accident Attorneys

Override accidents occur when a semi tractor-trailer turns or changes lanes and it rides over the top of car or smaller truck. These accidents can occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • The truck driver failing to check for nearby traffic when he or she is turning or changing lanes
  • Tailgating
  • Travelling too fast for current road conditions
  • Driver inattention
  • Driver fatigue

No matter what the cause of these types of accidents, the injuries that the victims suffer can be catastrophic. Having the full force of such a large and heavy vehicle riding over your vehicle can not only crush the other driver's vehicle, it can cause the driver of the smaller vehicle to lose control. This can cause the smaller vehicle to strike bridge supports, telephone poles or other roadside objects as well as leaving the vehicle disabled in the middle of oncoming traffic.
