Rollover Accident Lawyer
Last updated Thursday, March 10th, 2022
A rollover accident occurs when a vehicle rolls onto its side or top and rolls over several times. They usually happen on a freeway when people go off the road or sometimes in a T-bone accident that is so violent it flips the car over.
You can keep from becoming involved in a rollover accident by driving defensively, staying alert, controlling your speed, maintaining a proper distance from the car ahead, and adjusting driving for the traffic and weather conditions.
If you or a loved one were injured in a car crash due to the negligent actions of another, a rollover accident lawyer could help you seek compensation. Our knowledgeable attorneys will work hard to hold the at-fault party and their insurance company accountable for their actions. We will use evidence, witness statements as well as expert testimony to prove your injuries and the defendant’s liability. The attorneys at Skaug Law are dedicated to protecting your rights in and out of court.
Reasons Collisions Occur
Vehicles roll over for a number of reasons. In single car accidents, sometimes the driver is not paying attention and goes off the road. A vehicle may hit something like a curb or soft soil that stops the forward motion of the vehicle causing the rollover.
Other factors that may cause a rollover accident may be vehicle design, unsafe speeds, dangerous roadways, colliding with another vehicle, or defective tires. Vehicles with a higher profile or a narrow axle track are prone to rollovers. Trucks are also more likely to roll over more frequently than passenger cars because of their height and higher ground clearance that raises the center of mass.
An experienced rollover accident lawyer can review the evidence and help determine the direct cause of the collision.
Common Types of Injuries
Common rollover injuries include:
- Neck and spinal cord damage
- Broken bones
- Severe head injury
- Loss of Limb
- Organ Damage
- Crushing injuries
An experienced attorney can work with medical professionals and use medical records, CT scans, as well as other tests to prove the extent of your injuries in court.
