Hurt in a Rollover Truck Accident? We Can Help
Attorney Cerasa puts in the work to win your claim
Following a serious rollover truck accident, most accident victims are still reeling with the shock and pain of the awful event for days, weeks, even months later. You may be out of work, unable to move much, and watching new medical bills pile up on top of monthly expenses. Maybe you’re struggling to care for your parents, pets, or children and manage a household while you heal. It can all be overwhelming.
As you try to put back together the life and future you had planned, expect to hear from claim adjusters. The Cerasa Law Firm LLC knows that the insurance company’s representatives will likely tempt you with a siren’s song promising a stress-free, quick settlement that can make all those bills disappear. It can all be yours as long as you sign away your rights.
Rollover truck accidents are rare, but profoundly destructive. An out-of-control, tumbling tractor trailer causes enough wreckage on its own, but if the cargo spills there is no end to how many people can be negatively impacted.
Whatever the insurance company is promising, attorney Michael Cerasa can work to get the financial compensation you deserve.
Insurance companies earn billions of dollars in profit by denying and lowballing the claims of real accident victims. They’re focused on shortchanging you.

What causes rollover accidents?
A rollover truck accident happens when a big rig turns over onto its side or back at least once – often into the path of an oncoming passenger car. The impact of the crash can cause tremendous damage and serious injuries. Rollovers are difficult to investigate, but our firm is up to the challenge.
In recent years, the Central Florida community has encountered rollover crashes on I-275, I-75, and the Corkscrew Road at Veranda Village Boulevard intersection in Estero.
Rollover accidents are usually caused when a truck driver takes a curve – such as the sharp turn of a highway off ramp – too quickly. Depending on what a trailer is hauling and whether it was loaded correctly, the weight or movement of the cargo combined with the vehicle’s high center of gravity can cause it to roll.
A federal study found the most common reasons for rollover crashes are:
- The driver lost control. The truck went wild due to something like a blown tire, poor road conditions, a piece of the vehicle breaking off, or cargo shift.
- Poor truck-driving skills. A trucker has gone over the lane line, driven off the edge or past the end of the road, or made incorrect turning maneuvers at intersections.
- Another vehicle made an error. A passenger vehicle causes the truck driver to make a sudden stop or turn by doing something reckless like slamming on their brakes for no reason, travelling in the wrong lane, or backing up without checking for oncoming traffic.
- Startled response. This is when a trucker makes a sudden move to avoid hitting something or someone. Rollovers are often caused when a trucker attempts to prevent hitting pedestrians, cyclists, animals, or roadway objects.
Usually, a rollover truck doesn’t need an outside object to get it to start flipping, but if the truck does get tripped up, it is usually by a curb, guardrail, ditch, or soft soil.
One-on-one attention from an attorney with big firm experience
If you or a loved one was injured in a rollover truck accident, you may need help figuring out how much your case is worth so that you don’t wind up paying out of pocket for essential accident-related treatment and equipment 2, 3, 10 or more years from now.
Among the injuries people sustain in rollover truck accidents are broken ribs, lacerations, internal bleeding, herniated discs, neck injuries and joint damage.
When creating a compensation package, you must consider the short- and long-term impact of your injuries, property loss, and how that affects the lifestyle you have built for yourself and your family.
Many insurance companies want to see a kind of itemized list for your past, current, and future accident-related expenses. The more detail and supporting projections you can provide for your claim, the better. Adjusters are hardly known for their trusting nature and blind generosity.
Attorney Cerasa spent years practicing Florida law at large legal firms. It’s where he honed his skills in calculating a solid, hard-to-deny account of the cost of your accident-recovery needs now and in the future. In addition to medical expenses, some of the damages you may claim include:
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Physical therapy
- Mental anguish
- Diminished earning potential
- Reduced work hours
More time spent on cases than TV
Attorney Michael Cerasa understands that there is a lot riding on your rollover truck accident injury claim. He will give you the personal time and attention you need to answer questions and help you feel comfortable and in control of your claim’s process.
If you pick a lawyer who doesn’t have time for you, isn’t around to answer questions, or help you realize your future goals, it is very unlikely he will investigate your claim as thoroughly as the insurance company. If you don’t go into settlement negotiations with a strong case, the insurance company is not likely to take your claim seriously. A lot of TV lawyers spend too much time in the studio trying to hook new clients. Attorney Cerasa would rather spend his time building your case.
Attorney Cerasa often represents truck accident victims on contingency, meaning you pay nothing out of pocket for his services. There is no down payment, no retainer fee, and no hourly rate for his services. Our fee is calculated into your final settlement or verdict and is paid for by the at-fault person’s insurance company – not you. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
