When a car collides with another vehicle or with an object, it can be terrifying and the damage and injuries can be extensive. However, in some situations, the crash may escalate into a rollover accident. A rollover occurs when a vehicle rolls onto its side, roof, or even rolls over multiple times. Understandably, this is a mentally traumatic experience for any victims and can also result in extensive traumatic physical injuries.
The aftermath of a rollover accident can be chaotic. Often, a vehicle will be totaled and victims will need to be transported in an ambulance for emergency care. Some victims will deal with their accident-related injuries for months or even years following a rollover crash, not to mention the financial losses they incur.
The Law Offices of Randolph Rice helps victims of rollover accidents in and around the Baltimore area. If you’ve suffered injuries in this type of crash, please call our dedicated legal team for help today.
Causes of Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents are often associated with Jeeps or other SUVs that have a higher center of gravity. While these vehicles can be more prone to rollovers, any vehicle has the potential to roll over under the right circumstances – from the smallest car to the largest commercial truck.
Rollovers can happen for a variety of reasons, including:
- A driver loses control on a turn due to speed or other circumstances
- A tire blows out and causes a driver to lose control
- Another driver crashes into a vehicle at a particular angle or speed
- Overcorrection by a driver sends the vehicle flying off the road
- A road hazard “trips” a car and causes it to roll
Whether you were a driver or passenger in a vehicle that rolled, chances are you are facing extensive losses and you should be aware of your legal rights.
Recovering for Your Car Accident Losses
In order to identify your rights to financial recovery, you must determine what – and who – caused the rollover crash. This can be the driver of the car in which you were riding, a driver in a separate car, a government entity that allowed dangerous road hazards, a car manufacturer, and more. No matter who is liable, our car accident attorneys can assist you in seeking compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. We handle every step of your case including:
- Your own no-fault PIP insurance claim
- A fault-based insurance claim against another driver
- A personal injury lawsuit in civil court
Our team knows how to fight for the car accident settlement you deserve for all of the losses you needlessly face.
