With 18-wheeler rollovers, this can become incredibly complex, since a lot of manufacturers simply don't care about the safety of the driver. Their only goal is to make a truck that can haul lots of cargo. As a result, the cabs end up being little more than tissue boxes for the drivers. Despite the technology existing to protect truck drivers in a rollover, some vehicles still aren't nearly as safe as they should be. That's why, even with something as unavoidable as strong winds, it's always worth investigating a crash as thoroughly as possible to explore the avenues through which victims can get the help they deserve.
