Vehicle Rollover Accident Attorneys in California

What is a vehicle rollover accident?

A vehicle rollover accident is just what it sounds like – an accident that involves a vehicle rolling onto its side or roof as a result of the force of the collision or loss of traction with the road. A rollover accident may be caused by driving too quickly on ice or snow. One vehicle slamming into another at high speeds may also cause a rollover accident. In some cases, a rollover accident results in the vehicle being completely crushed and its occupants seriously injured.

What makes vehicle rollover accidents so serious?

Vehicle rollover accidents have the potential to be fatal, especially if the roof is crushed. In the event that all occupants survive, they are likely to still suffer significant injuries. The extent of these injuries can be influenced by a number of factors, including but not limited to the following:

  • Force of the impact
  • Number of times the vehicle rolls
  • Extent of damage to the roof of the vehicle
  • Functionality of the airbags
  • Number of occupants
  • Age, height, and weight of occupants
  • Use of seatbelts
  • Make and model of the vehicle
  • Number of vehicles involved
  • Location of the crash

In a rollover accident, the occupants of the vehicle are often thrown about. They may slam into the sides of the doors, the dashboard, the seats in front of them, and even other passengers. These types of impacts can cause significant harm.

Additionally, occupants may be trapped inside the vehicle after a rollover. Their injuries may become more serious the longer they are trapped. The risk of burns or bleeding will increase as more time passes so it’s crucial that first responders are able to free occupants quickly. Depending on the seriousness of the damage to the vehicle, this may not always be possible.

Personal and property damage

Most auto accidents involve some degree of personal or property damage (or both). However, accidents that involve a vehicle rollover can lead to more serious injuries to both people and property. A fender bender may cause some denting to the rear bumper of your car. However, if another driver causes your car to roll, the roof is almost certainly going to be crushed in. A vehicle that is rolled over onto its roof is a dangerous situation for passengers and drivers – often resulting in serious injuries that require immediate medical attention.

Vehicle rollovers are among the most serious car accidents. These types of crashes can be fatal or leave passengers severely hurt. In many cases, your vehicle may be totaled by your insurance company and you are left needing to replace it.

If you or someone you love was involved in a vehicle rollover accident, you are likely suffering physically, emotionally, and financially. The May Firm will take on the burden of handling your case while you take all of the time and energy that you need to recover.

Who may be liable in a vehicle rollover accident?

In the event of a vehicle rollover accident, a number of parties could be held responsible. In the event that another driver causes the accident (such as running through a red light at 45mph and striking your vehicle), he or she will generally be liable for your injuries. After all, if they had been driving responsibly, you wouldn’t have been injured in the first place!

In some cases, the vehicle manufacturer might be liable for some of the damages if the vehicle’s safety features did not work properly and added to the severity of your injuries. For example, if the driver’s airbag did not deploy after a head-on collision, it is likely that there was some defect that the manufacturer should have caught. In that case, the manufacturer may also be liable for your injuries.

Comparative fault

California has a “comparative fault” system of law that apportions the damages awarded in a personal injury case based on a percentage of liability. Under this system, a plaintiff can still recover even if they were partially at fault for his or her injuries. For example, if you were injured in a vehicle rollover accident caused by another driver, but your injuries were made worse because you weren’t wearing a seatbelt, you are partially at fault. However, failure to wear a seatbelt won’t completely bar you from recovery. If the judge or jury concludes that you are 40% at fault for your injuries, you can still recover 60% from the other driver.
