What Is A Rollover?
A rollever accident is any time a vehicle involved in an accident is flipped upside down or tumbles. Rollovers create serious risk of bodily harm due to the forces necessary to cause such an accident. They often result in the cars landing upside down, experiencing extreme cabin intrusion, being torn into pieces, and/or catching on fire. Obviously, these can all cause serious injuries or even death. Sometimes, accident victims of rollover accidents will be ejected from the car, knocked unconscious, or suffer from loss of limbs and/or broken bones. Additionally, the vehicles involved in a rollover accident are often determined to be total losses, due to the cost to repair a vehicle after it has been involved in a rollover accident.
Common Causes For A Rollover Accident
There are several causes of rollover accidents. Sometimes they are the result of t-bone accidents at intersections, side swipe accidents, accident involving high speeds, or accidents involving blown tires. Sometimes, they are the result of reckless driving or driving while intoxicated. Whatever the cause may be, rollover accidents are not to be taken lightly, as the results are often life-changing.
Often times a rollover accident will be the result of another party’s negligence. If you have suffered a personal injury as a result of the negligence of another driver, then you should immediately “lawyer-up” and call an attorney of the Injury Firm Las Vegas so you can speak to an experienced Las Vegas Personal Injury Lawyer who can explain, in detail, exactly what needs to be done to preserve your rights. We will explain what you need to do, including what to say (and what not to say) to any insurance adjusters. What to do about your injuries, and what you should do to make sure that you are not left with a bunch of medical bills, should you require medical treatment.
Penalties For The Negligent Driver
The penalties for being involved in a are typically civil in nature, unless they involve driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, criminal negligence, or are the result of an action that was done in furtherance of the commission of a felony crime, then the at-fault driver could face criminal penalties on top of civil penalties. Most of the time a driver that causes an accident on public roads will be issued a traffic citation, which may result in points on their driving record, a fine, or require driver education courses. Most of the time, as long as the at-fault driver carries liability insurance, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will protect them from civil liability. They will even hire the at-fault driver an attorney if necessary. This is why it is so important to get the best possible lawyer that you can find to assist you in your personal injury case. The other side’s attorney will push hard to make sure that you are paid as little as possible and make it hard to collect money in order to get you to accept a low settlement amount. An aggressive attorney will be on your side to help you through these types of situations and give you the comfort that you deserve after being involved in such a traumatic incident.
Who Is Held Liable In A Rollover Accident?
Liability in a rollover accident is the same as any other car accident. It involves an at-fault party and a non-negligent party. Sometimes there is a combination. Liability is usually not clear cut and sometimes, there is shared liability for causing an accident. In these circumstances, it must be determined how much each person was at-fault on a percentage basis. This can be tough to calculate and will be in the hands of a jury if it gets down to a trial on the liability issue.
