Serious Injuries After Vehicle Rollovers
One of the most dangerous types of vehicle accidents is the rollover. As the name suggests, the car, truck or SUV rolls from an upright position, ultimately resting on its roof. This violent action can result in individuals being thrown from the vehicle or the roof caving in. A “roof crush” can lead to head, neck and spine injuries. Any people ejected from the vehicle risk injury against the road surfaces or being hit by another vehicle.
While SUVs are more prone to rollovers due to their higher center of gravity, any vehicle can roll over onto its roof. No matter the cause, it is crucial that you speak with a skilled personal injury attorney to discuss your case. Based on certain factors, you might be eligible to recover monetary compensation from the at-fault party – whether that is a negligent driver or the car manufacturer.
