Have you been involved in a rollover accident?
A rollover accident is one of the most serious accident types causing up to twenty-two percent of car accident deaths and sixty-two percent of SUV deaths.
A rollover accident occurs when a vehicle flips onto its roof or side. The most common cause of a rollover accident is excessive speed while turning, which destabilizes the vehicle. Any type of vehicle can be involved in a rollover accident. However Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV’s), with their high ground clearance and high center of gravity, have increased rollover risks which have been well documented and publicized. Rollovers can also occur in taller vehicles including pickup trucks, vans, and buses.
Injuries sustained in rollover accidents are often very serious. Common injuries occurring in rollovers include:
- Spinal cord injuries, paralysis, paraplegia, and quadriplegia
- Loss of limbs
- Internal organ damage
- Head injuries and brain damage
Rollover accident cases require experienced legal representation.
Rollover accidents may be the result of defective tires or defective design of the vehicle. In some cases inadequate design or maintenance of the roadway may be a cause of a rollover accident. Sometimes a vehicle will not properly protect the occupants in a rollover accident due to design problems or manufacturing defects.
Rollover accident cases are some of the most demanding of vehicle accident cases. It is important that your lawyer have the experience, know-how, and resources to properly handle your rollover case. It is important as well, to preserve accident scene evidence and to have access to experts who will be able to understand the details of your case and to provide a thorough assessment of your claim.
