Common Causes of Rollover Accidents
Sport utility vehicles (SUVs), small vans, and light trucks often have a higher center of gravity and a narrower wheelbase that can increase the risk of a rollover accident. In addition, tire tread defects can lead to a vehicle “tripping,” then rolling, when the tire bumps into a curb or soft soil.
Other factors in rollover accidents include brake problems, suspension issues, dangerous roads, and drivers proceeding at high rates of speed. However, even if you were traveling above the speed limit before your accident, a flaw in the design or parts of your vehicle may have helped to cause this kind of crash. Negrete Law Firm will consider all the aspects of your case so you have the highest chance of a favorable outcome.
Injuries Often Seen in Rollovers
A rollover accident can injure passengers when they’re ejected from the vehicle. Even if passengers remain inside, they may endure crushed vehicle roofs, fuel-fed fires, and door latch failures. The result can be severe injuries such as deep lacerations, broken bones, and internal organ damage. Injured parties may also experience the life-altering effects of a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord damage.
It’s important to document any injuries you suffer in a rollover accident and to call Negrete Law Firm as soon as you can. You should also be aware that recovery from a serious injury may take months or even years. Some rollover victims will never fully recover, leaving them to face a lifetime of costly medical needs. No matter what you’re dealing with, we’ll help you get the compensation you deserve.
