Rollover Accidents and Injuries
A rollover accident is not only a traumatizing experience, it can also leave you with serious and significant injuries. In fact, according the Governor's Office of Consumer Protection in Georgia, 47 percent of fatalities in single-vehicle crashes involve rollovers.
For more than 25 years, lawyer Bernard Hoppenfeld has represented clients who have been injured in serious car and truck accidents in the Atlanta area. Contact our law firm for answers to your questions about rollover accidents and advocate for maximum compensation in your case.
What Caused Your Rollover Accident?
The majority of rollover accidents involve sport utility vehicles (SUVs). SUVs generally have a higher center of gravity. When an SUV driver suddenly swerves, changes speed or goes off the road, this high center of gravity can cause the vehicle to become unstable and flip over.
SUVs are not the only type of vehicle that can rollover, however. Regardless of the type of vehicle involved, whether a pickup truck or a compact car, there is a risk of a rollover accident if the vehicle becomes unstable, is in a collision or quickly changes direction.
Compensation After a Rollover Accident
Whether you have suffered an injury or lost a loved one in a fatal rollover accident, the costs can quickly build up. Your insurance or the insurance of another driver may help to cover some of your out-of-pocket costs. If the accident was the result of another's negligence, then you may also have a personal injury claim.
In a personal injury action, you can pursue damages to help you cover past and future medical expenses and lost income. Additionally, you can pursue damages for your pain and suffering.
If you lost a loved one in a fatal rollover accident, we understand that no amount of money can make up for your loss. Through a wrongful death claim, however, you can get the help you need to pay funeral costs as well as receive compensation for lost income and loss of companionship.
