Let Our Team Seek Compensation for Your Rollover Accident
If you suffered permanent injuries or your close family member passed away due to a rollover crash, you could potentially file a claim or lawsuit to recover damages. Generally speaking, the more serious the injuries and financial losses are, the higher your financial recovery may be.
Recoverable Damages in a Personal Injury Case
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), injuries in rollover crashes often involve the head, neck, and spine. These injuries can require expensive, ongoing medical treatments. While there is no such thing as an average settlement in a rollover crash, you could potentially recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitative therapies
- Transportation, such as a rental car
- Lost wages and future lost wages
- Replacement or repair of your vehicle
- Physical and emotional suffering
- Loss of life enjoyment
We May Help You Recover Wrongful Death Damages
If your loved one passed away in a crash, you could receive compensation for:
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of the decedent’s income
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- The decedent’s final medical expenses
The bottom line is that if another party caused your or your loved one’s crash and injuries, we believe that you should not have to shoulder all the expenses on your own. You and your family deserve justice and compensation. A Clearwater rollover accident lawyer from our team can help.
How Our Legal Team Can Support Your Accident Case
Having one of our car accident attorneys by your side can be helpful when it comes to advocating for your right to damages. We can help in several ways, including with:
Identifying All At-Fault Parties
Rollover accidents can potentially have several at-fault parties, including:
- Another driver
- A business employing a driver
- A local government authority
- A car manufacturer or car part manufacturer
Our team can analyze your rollover accident and identify all potential at-fault parties in the case. Depending on the evidence we find, you could have several avenues for pursuing compensation.
Victims intending to file a claim or lawsuit can underestimate the amount of evidence that is necessary. We know how to prove a case and where to look for crucial evidence, which can include:
- Police accident reports
- Traffic camera or dash camera recordings
- Eyewitness statements
- Other photographs and videos of the accident scene
Our firm can also help prove your damages, which will likely involve communicating with your doctor to obtain the relevant medical reports. Your medical records can detail all of your injuries, link them to the accident, and help us account for the cost of your treatment.
Negotiating with the Liable Party’s Insurance Company
Negotiating with insurance companies can be an uphill struggle, especially if you are still recovering from your injuries. When we represent you, we will work hard to protect your legal rights and fight for a fair settlement that covers your costs now and in the future.
It is important to insist on a comprehensive settlement before you accept an offer. Agreeing to an out-of-court resolution means that you will lose your right to seek further compensation in the future—even in court.
Representing You in Court
Agreeing to an inadequate settlement could leave you without legal recourse. Our team will work to prevent this by handling negotiations for you and letting you know when a settlement may not be the best option. If the insurance company refuses to make a fair offer, we can take your case to trial.
Liability for a Rollover Accident Can Vary
When the question of fault arises, rollover accidents can be somewhat tricky to understand. Collisions can happen due to many factors, such as a road being in disrepair or bad weather conditions. However, the NHTSA has found that most rollover crashes happen due to driver error. Examples of driver negligence leading to rollover accidents can include:
- Driving while distracted
- Driving too fast for weather or road conditions
- Violating traffic laws
- Aggressive and dangerous driving
If the at-fault driver was on the clock at the time, their employer could be liable for the collision in some cases. Similarly, a municipality may be responsible if faulty road maintenance caused the accident.
Some Vehicles are More Susceptible to Rollovers by Design
Not all cars are prone to rollovers—vehicles with a high center of gravity will be more likely to roll over in a car accident. This typically includes SUVs, pickup trucks, RVs, and other such vehicles. In cases where the vehicle’s design contributed to a rollover accident, a vehicle manufacturer could potentially be liable if there were no warnings regarding this risk.
