Who is Responsible for Rollover Accidents?

Getting into a motor vehicle accident is always a harrowing experience. Unfortunately, people are harmed in these accidents regularly, especially in more urban areas. One of the more common accidents we see, typically when dealing with SUV accidents, is rollover accidents. These accidents are often devastating and can result in permanent injuries. That said, sometimes, they aren’t always the driver’s fault (but often they are). Please continue reading and reach out to a dedicated Bronx car accident lawyer from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about these accidents, who may be responsible, and how we can help if you’ve been wrongfully injured. Here are some of the questions you may have:

Who is most often responsible for rollover accidents?

In some cases, the person behind the wheel of the vehicle that rolls over may be responsible. For example, when a person takes a turn too quickly and sharply in an SUV or another vehicle with a higher center of gravity, it can result in the vehicle rolling onto its side. However, in some cases, SUVs and other automobiles are unsafe and therefore prone to rollover crashes by design. If you were injured in a rollover crash that was caused by an unsafe vehicle design or a negligent vehicle manufacturer, there’s a strong chance you’ll have a valid product liability claim. In other cases, however, rollover accidents can also be caused by collisions that occur at high speeds. For example, if one motorist runs a red light at high speeds and T-bones another driver, it may cause their vehicle to roll over.

Am I eligible for compensation if I’ve been hurt in a rollover accident?

Whether you may receive compensation for injuries sustained in a rollover accident depends largely on how liability is assigned. For example, if you, along with your personal injury attorney, can prove that you were hurt as a direct result of another driver’s negligence or the negligence of an automobile designer or manufacturer, then you should qualify for financial compensation.

If you believe you are a victim of negligence and have sustained serious injuries, please don’t hesitate to speak with our firm. We are here to help you in any way we can.
