Help for Vehicle Rollover Victims – Claims & Compensation
Vehicle rollovers are extremely serious and frequently cause significant injury to the driver and passengers. Rollover accidents account for a substantial percentage of all accidents in California, and lead to an alarmingly high number of fatalities.
Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) tend to be at a higher risk of rolling over than other vehicles because of their high center of gravity.
In fact, some car models are notorious for flipping over even without a collision. If you have been injured in such an accident, you may require extensive hospital stays, which could lead to:
- overwhelming medical costs
- lost wages
- other expenses
It is in your best interests to consult an attorney as quickly as possible following the accident to determine who may be held liable.
Causes of Vehicle Rollovers
A rollover accident may occur due to a number of different factors. Common causes include:
- negligent driving
- driving under the influence
- road conditions
If it can be proven that your vehicle flipped over because of another motorist’s negligence, the other driver may be held liable.
Dangerous road conditions can also cause a vehicle to roll over, and if it is shown that the agency in charge of maintaining roads did not take sufficient steps to warn motorists, they could be held responsible.
In some cases, even the car manufacturer can be held liable because of faulty manufacturing.
