Rollover accidents are serious. If you or someone you love was hurt or killed in a rollover accident in West Covina, Los Angeles or the surrounding areas, you need an experienced lawyer on your side.
What Causes Rollover Accidents?
Rollover accidents can happen for a number reasons. The science behind a rollover accident is that a vehicle (particularly top heavy vehicles like buses, trucks, vans, and SUVs) can easily lose their center of balance. When this happens, generally because a driver is speeding, taking a turn too fast, or just not paying attention, the vehicle flips over.
Rollover Accidents Cause Serious Injuries
While some escape unscathed, many accident victims suffer serious injuries, including:
- spinal cord injuries
- broken bones
- traumatic brain injuries
And more, as this list is not exhaustive. Because of the seriousness of rollover accidents, it is important to seek prompt medical attention, even if you believe that you’re not hurt. Accident victims may suffer internal injuries that are not obvious to the untrained eye. Sadly, when left untreated, internal injuries from rollover accidents can result in irreversible damage or even death.
Rollover Accidents and Recalls
In some instances, rollover accidents are caused by or exacerbated by a defective product, such as bad breaks, a roof collapse, etc… It is important to speak with an experienced accident attorney after a rollover accident as vehicle recalls are often issued because the truck, SUV, or bus has a known problem with instability. As a result of the manufacturer’s product defect, you or your family may be at higher risk of being involved in a rollover accident. If your vehicle was on a recall list, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages for your injuries, medical care, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
