New York City Rollover Accident Lawyers
NYC Personal Injury Attorneys Representing the Rights of Rollover Accident Victims
A rollover is one of the most terrifying types of motor vehicle accidents. To make matters worse, when your vehicle turns over on its side, roof, or even multiple times around, you can sustain a variety of severe injuries. Rollover accidents may involve only one vehicle or may stem from a multi-vehicle collision. In any case, you should always learn whether you have the right to compensation.
If you have been injured in an accident that resulted from rollover, you might be eligible to make a claim or sue the responsible driver. This is especially true if you suffered a severe injury, such as a bone fracture, brain injury, and/or a permanent physical injury.

What Can Cause a Vehicle to Roll Over?
While any type of vehicle can roll over, those with a higher center of gravity and a narrow wheelbase are particularly susceptible to rollover accidents. These include sport utility vehicles (SUVs), buses, commercial semi-trucks, passenger vans, and more.
Rollover accidents have many common causes. In some instances, driver error can cause a vehicle to roll over in the middle of the roadway. Other common causes of rollover accidents include the following:
● Driving too fast in wet or slippery weather conditions
● Driving too fast around a turn and careening out of control
● Worn or defective tires on a vehicle
● Unbalanced weight in the vehicle which causes the vehicle to become top heavy
● Loads on top of an SUV that are too heavy
● Hitting a curb that “trips” the vehicle
● Unsafe vehicle design that causes rollovers without driver error
Pursuing Personal Injury Damages in a Rollover Accident Case
If you suffered serious or permanent injuries in a rollover accident, you might be able to file a lawsuit for personal injuries arising out of your accident. To be successful, the accident victim would need to demonstrate that the at-fault driver operated his or her vehicle in a negligent manner, that the accident victim suffered injuries, and that these injuries resulted from the rollover accident. Accident victims could recover compensation for related medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other damages that can be traced to the accident.
