Rollover Accident Attorneys
We Have Recovered Millions for Car Accident Victims
Rollover accidents are some of the most frightening of all car accidents. They are also some of the most deadly. Rollover accidents often lead to roof crushes and collapses, broken windshields and vehicle windows, and unsecured objects—or people—being tossed around the inside of the vehicle. All of this leads to severe, catastrophic injuries which are often, tragically, fatal.
Our rollover accident attorneys understand the serious nature of these types of collisions, which is why we fight tirelessly to secure the maximum compensation rollover accident victims are owed. At Dunk Law Firm, we genuinely care about helping you get back on your feet in the wake of a devastating crash. If you believe that someone else—be it another driver or the manufacturer of a defective vehicle—is responsible for the rollover accident that caused your injuries, reach out to our team to learn more about your right to seek fair financial recovery. We have several office locations and proudly serve clients nationwide.
How Do Rollover Accidents Happen?
The most common cause of vehicle rollovers is loss of control; when the driver loses control of the vehicle and unintentionally overcorrects, the vehicle can flip over. This is especially true of taller vehicles and those with a high center of gravity, such as sport utility vehicles (SUVs). Additionally, speeding and drunk driving have also been statistically shown to increase the risk of a rollover, as motorists who are traveling at high speeds or while under the influence of alcohol or drugs are more likely to lose control.
Some of the most common causes of rollover accidents include:
- Side-Impact (“T-Bone”) Crashes: When a vehicle is hit from the side by another vehicle, it can easily flip over. This is especially true when the crash occurs at a high rate of speed or when the vehicle that is hit is an SUV, pickup truck, or another vehicle with a high center of gravity.
- Objects in the Roadway: When a vehicle hits a relatively small object in the roadway, sometimes referred to as “tripping,” it can cause the driver to lose control and the vehicle can roll over. Sometimes, hitting a small object at high speeds is enough to cause the vehicle to pitch forward or to the side, leading to a rollover.
- Defective Vehicle Design: A defective vehicle design can cause it to roll over more easily. This might be the case in a vehicle with an unreasonably high center of gravity or a vehicle that rolls over easily when turning, even at relatively low speeds.
- Defective Vehicle Parts: Defective brake pads, steering systems, and other auto parts can all contribute to or cause a rollover. In such instances, the manufacturer or designer of the specific part that is defective can be held liable under product liability laws.
- Dangerous Road Construction or Design: Just as a vehicle or auto part can be defective, the design or construction of a road can also be defective. This might be the case if the posted speed limit is too high for safe travel along a curvy road or when a soft shoulder is unmarked.
