Sacramento Rollover Accident Attorney

One of the most violent collision types is the rollover. The rollover is closely associated with vehicles that are high and have narrow wheelbases, like the typical sports utility vehicle (SUV). But in fact cars have been flipping over in certain circumstances since the early days of the automobile.

Although not as common as the rear-end collision or T-bone crash, the rollover often results in the death of drivers and passengers.

What Causes A Rollover And Who Is At Fault

Many different actions can trigger a rollover. A rollover can occur when a car is unable to make a turn, or encounters an obstacle on the road, causing the vehicle to flip. It can happen when drivers are distracted or fall asleep, or are drunk and lose control of the vehicle.

The damage in an SUV rollover can be extreme to those inside, even if they are belted in, as their bodies smash against the sides of the vehicle, breaking bones, sometimes exiting through the windows. When cars roll over, and the doors are sealed shut, emergency crews must often resort to the Jaws of Life to pull the injured occupants out.

Rollovers also do great damage to other vehicles that can't get out of the way.

At Eliot Reiner, A Professional Law Corporation, in Sacramento, attorney Eliot Reiner works with rollovers from many different angles:

  • When a rollover injures a separate party, we may file a suit against the oncoming driver's insurance policy.
  • When the rollover driver has been drinking or driving recklessly, or sleeping, or texting, we may ask for punitive damages above and beyond the usual compensation.
  • When the rollover is the result of defective tires or steering, or safety glass that is anything but safe, we may file a dangerous product lawsuit.
  • When the rollover occurs because of a defect in the roadway or signage, we may file a claim against the governmental entity in charge of maintaining the roadway.
