Rollover Collisions

Car accidents occur on a daily basis, injuring thousands of residents, visitors, and other individuals traveling through the state of Georgia. Some of the most dangerous accidents are those that occur as a result of vehicle rollovers. A rollover accident is a type of accident in which a motor vehicle tips over onto its side or its roof one or more times before coming to a stop. While some are fortunate to walk away with only minor injuries, these accidents are known to cause serious injury or death. If you or your loved one has been injured in an accident or incident involving a vehicle rollover, contact Persons Firm today for a risk-free initial consultation.

Injuries Associated with Rollover Collisions

As with any auto accident case, the injuries in rollover accidents can vary from mild to severe. Those who are fortunate enough to survive a rollover accident without significant damages, still sustain injuries that consist of minor cuts and bruises. These types of injuries frequently occur while the car overturns and shifts momentum, causing individuals inside the vehicle to come in contact with both flying objects and those that are stationary. More significant injuries occur in instances in which the vehicle’s windshield or windows break or when an individual is ejected from the vehicle. This is known to cause deep lacerations, head trauma, and damage to one’s upper and lower limbs.

Vehicle Safety and Rollovers

While there are several motor vehicles that are known to roll over more easily, this type of accident can happen to any motor vehicle. Typically, SUVs are more commonly involved in rollover accidents. This is because the stability of SUVs, vehicles that accommodate a large number of passengers, and trucks is more easily compromised. The center of gravity of a vehicle is what ensures that a vehicle remains in an upright position. However, things such as speed, the type of roadway, and manufacturing defects may cause a vehicle’s center of gravity to be thrown off.

Manufacturer defects can occur in a variety of ways including proof braking systems, poor tires, the heaviness of the vehicle, turning mechanisms, and more. If a manufacturer fails to build a vehicle that is safe for consumers, you may have a claim against the manufacturer of the vehicle, in addition to any other negligent parties. If so, you will need the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you recover a fair amount of monetary compensation for your damages.
