There are many different types of car accidents. One of the most common accidents involves a rollover of an SUV or truck. Due to their high center of gravity, SUVs and trucks have a greater risk of rollovers than sedans and smaller vehicles. Tragically, these rollovers often result in life-altering injuries and even fatalities. In fact, approximately one-third of rollovers are fatal. Injured victims generally have questions regarding which persons are at-fault for their injuries. Regardless of fault, these severe injuries often result in substantial medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. The experienced attorneys at Slatter Law Firm will aggressively fight to recover the maximum compensation for your injuries.
Rollover accidents are sometimes caused by defective tires, defective car parts, or design defects for the SUV or vehicle. For example, a defective tire can cause a blowout, which results in loss of control of a vehicle. When a tire loses contact with the road, the risk of a rollover greatly increases. Defective brakes are another common cause for these accidents. Claims based on these defects are called product liability claims. If the defect in the tires, car parts, or the design of the vehicle caused your accident, the manufacturer of the tire or vehicle may be at-fault for your injuries. Your experienced rollover accident attorney will thoroughly investigate all of the circumstances surrounding your accident and identify all at-fault persons.
Due to the nature of rollovers, these accidents result in significant injuries and trauma. However, if your accident was caused by another person’s negligence, then you are entitled to recover compensation for your past and future medical treatment, lost income, scarring and disfigurement, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. These accidents clearly raise complicated legal issues that may prevent your recovery of compensation without an attorney. Therefore, you should immediately retain an experienced accident attorney following your accident.
