Car accidents injure thousands of people every year, sometimes resulting in extremely serious injuries. Among the most dangerous kinds of accident in which a person may be involved are rollover accidents. While rollover accidents generally happen to cars such as SUVs and large trucks that have a higher center of gravity, they can also occur to smaller passenger vehicles as well. People injured in rollover accidents caused by the negligence of other drivers or defective vehicle design or manufacture may be able to recover significant compensation for their economic and non-economic losses. The best way for victims to ensure they receive the compensation to which they are entitled is to retain one of the attorneys at the Law Offices of Shane Smith as soon as possible.
Common Causes of Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, some of which may entitle victims to bring a legal claim against another party. Some of the most common causes of rollover accidents include:
Taking turns too fast
Improper cargo loading
After a rollover accident, it is important for those involved to document as much information about the accident as possible. This can include facts such as the names of all of the drivers involved in the accident, the license plate numbers of the vehicles, the weather conditions at the time of the accident, as well as contact information from any witness to the accident. In addition, victims should be sure undergo a thorough medical evaluation conducted by a medical professional.
