Information on Rollover Accidents
Marietta Car Accident Lawyer
Automobile accidents happen every day. When they do, the collision can come in a number of ways. It may involve a head on collision, crashing from behind or even a complete roll of the vehicle. Rollover accidents are one of the most common and dangerous types of car accidents, usually resulting in very severe injuries or even wrongful death.
Causes of Rollover Accidents
The underlying cause of rollover accidents has in some cases been determined to be an unsafe design in which the SUV, truck or van has such a high center of gravity. This means that swerving to avoid an accident or other situation in which a regular vehicle is stable, results in a rollover for this type of vehicle. When there are tire defects, the stability of the vehicle’s design is dangerously flawed, or there are problems in the suspension design or other vehicle system, a rollover accident can be the result.
The result of rollover accidents are so dangerous to the driver and passengers that in many cases the injuries they sustain are fatal. In other cases, they survive the accident but suffer catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain damage, spinal injuries, loss of limb or disfiguring injuries. Each case demands a careful and full evaluation and it may be necessary to enlist the professional assistance of an independent accident investigator to determine what caused the accident. When an auto part or auto manufacturer provides a commercial product to a consumer that is later determined to have endangered their lives, a civil suit can be filed to seek compensation for damages.
The injuries in the accident are often so severe that one’s own policy may not provide adequate finances to get the needed medical treatments; a civil case can lead to a settlement that can ensure that the injured has access to the best of medical care, and recover the other damages such as pain and suffering, loss of income from work, future financial losses and others.
