Do I Need An Attorney?
While the facts of the accident may be clear, obtaining compensation for your injuries may not be as simple as filing a claim with the insurance company. Insurers may look to deny your claim or may not offer you the fair amount of compensation that you need to pay your medical bills and replace the property that you lost. An attorney can help you fight for the compensation that you are owed, and can help you hold the responsible party accountable for their actions. You may be owed compensation for your expenses related to the cost of medical care, lost wages from time off of work, and the cost of replacing your vehicle. You may also be owed compensation for your pain, suffering, and other emotional trauma associated with the accident. Contact an experienced attorney today to discuss your case and find out what you might be owed.
Causes of Rollover Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rollover accidents account for more than half of single-vehicle crash fatalities. Each year, there are approximately 11,000 rollover accidents, and the chances of serious injuries increase by 36% when a rollover occurs. The primary causes of rollover accidents are:
- High center of gravity: when a vehicle’s center of gravity is too high by design, it makes the vehicle susceptible to flipping over while turning, even at lower speeds.
- Defective suspension: the stability of a vehicle is very dependent on the suspension. When the suspension fails, the car can lose control and become impossible to control, leading to rollovers.
- Poor road conditions: The roadways we drive on play a very big role in car rollovers. Uneven pavement, bad maintenance, and debris can all contribute to rollovers, and it’s the government’s responsibility to maintain safe and drivable roads.
- Manufacturer error/design flaws: in many cases, the vehicle’s design may make it more susceptible to rolling over in the event of a collision or maneuver on the road.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in a rollover accident, you do not need to suffer the consequences alone. You have the right to pursue legal action to recover compensation for your injuries and damage to your property, whether it is the vehicle manufacturer or another liable party.
