A variety of factors can contribute to a rollover crash, including driver behavior, road conditions, and car design. Those who were involved in a rollover accident may be entitled to claim compensation for their injuries from negligent drivers, government entities, or manufacturers. The Wilmington car accident lawyers at Rhoades & Morrow assist rollover accident victims in maximizing their recovery of damages from responsible parties.
Rollover accidents are more likely to result in fatalities than other types of crashes, according to the NHTSA. Fatal rollover crashes are often characterized by the failure to use restraints, causing occupants to be ejected from the vehicle. In a report by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), crash avoidance maneuvers, such as braking or steering, were not present in more than one-fourth of all fatal rollover accidents examined, indicating that drivers did not have enough time to react and take steps to prevent the crash. When they do not prove fatal, however, rollover accidents typically result in serious injuries. Common rollover crash injuries include:
There are various ways plaintiffs can potentially go about recovering compensation for a rollover accident. For example, if a rollover accident was caused by defective tires, the injured party may be able to sue the tire manufacturer in a products liability lawsuit for defective design, manufacturing defect, or lack of adequate warnings or instructions. Also, rollover accidents caused by poor road conditions may give rise to a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible government entity.
