Gravel spilled in Tampa rollover accident

An accident last week in Tampa, Florida left a dump truck with a major problem: all of the gravel that it was carrying spilled across the road. The accident involved a truck and a van and the police are investigating the crash. Few details are available, but we know it happened just before 7 a.m. and that the dump truck fell on its side, causing the spill that sent gravel all over.

Thankfully, it appears that there were only minor injuries involved in the crash. However, there are still seriously matters to consider here.

To begin, rollover accidents like this can cause very serious injuries to the people in the vehicle that rolls over. Upper body injuries, neck injuries and head injuries are very common, and these can be life changing.

Another aspect here is the behavior of the drivers at the time of the wreck. We know virtually nothing about this at this point with this particular story. But in general, you can get a wide range of driving behaviors at any given time. Distracted drivers, reckless drivers, drunk drivers, fatigued drivers -- and so on. These negligent behaviors can lead to someone being held responsible for a car accident, should the victims pursue their legal claims as far as they can go.

Rollover accidents are dangerous, but really any accident is dangerous. If you are involved in a car crash and one of the drivers involved is found to be negligent, then you should consider a civil lawsuit.
