Berkeley County Truck Rollover
Truck accidents take place every day on Georgia roads for many reasons. If you have been injured in an accident involving a truck, you have a right to compensation and we want to extend our thoughts and prayers to you during this time.
Rollover accidents involving trucks happen easily when proper precautions are not taken on our roads. Some vehicles are more prone to rolling over due to their inherent design or when truck drivers are not obeying the rules of the road. They also sometimes happen to maneuvers that truck drivers have to take when a vehicle driver is acting in a negligent fashion.
