The Serious, Skilled Legal Help You Need After A Rollover Accident
Injuries sustained in a rollover accident can be among the most severe and life-altering a motorist can experience. The roof of a vehicle is designed to protect the people inside from the impact of a crash. But when a vehicle rolls over, that roof becomes a liability capable of causing life-threatening injuries to the people inside.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a rollover accident, you should not hesitate to call the experienced attorneys at Athens Injury Law. We can help you recover the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
What Causes Rollover Accidents?
Rollover crashes are often caused by driver negligence. Behaviors leading to a rollover include:
- Drunk driving
- Texting and other forms of distracted driving
- Aggressive driving
- Vehicle defects
Our attorneys are well-versed in Georgia and federal motor vehicle law, and we know how to investigate these accidents to determine if negligence played a role in causing the crash. In some cases, a single driver error may cause a rollover accident. In others, multiple driver errors may contribute to the severity of the crash. Our team is equipped to investigate the cause of a rollover accident and will hold all parties responsible for causing the crash accountable.
Common Injuries After A Rollover Accident
Rollover accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, depending on the vehicle’s position during the crash, the direction it rolls and the position of the occupants. However, the most common injuries sustained in a rollover accident are:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Injuries to the spinal cord, sometimes leading to paralysis
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
The severity of these injuries will depend on the speed of the vehicle, the angle at which it rolled and where the occupants were positioned in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
What Kinds Of Compensation Are You Entitled To?
