SUV Rollover Accidents

Rollover accidents involving SUVs commonly happen when the driver of the vehicle must make a sharp turn, swerve to avoid hitting debris in the road, or overcorrects a turn. These accidents can involve a single car, or they may involve multiple vehicles. Rollover accidents often cause extensive damage to the vehicle and severe injuries to the vehicle occupants.

Rollover accidents involving SUVs commonly happen when the driver of the vehicle must make a sharp turn, swerve to avoid hitting debris in the road, or overcorrects a turn.

In SUVs, a high center of gravity combined with a poorly designed suspension system and inadequate brakes can contribute to rollovers.

Other drivers can also be affected by these accidents. For example, if a driver in an SUV makes a sharp turn and the vehicle tips over, the car in the turn lane next to it could be damaged. This can lead to serious injuries for other drivers, as well as property damage.

Determining Liability

It is important to note that not all SUV rollover accidents are the driver’s fault. If the driver of the SUV was driving recklessly, such as speeding around a sharp turn where there was a posted lowered speed limit, the driver would be at fault. Sometimes, however, high winds can lead to rollover accidents. In other cases, the driver of the SUV may have had to swerve or make a quick turn in reaction to another driver’s reckless driving.

At San Diego Injury Lawyer, our attorneys will investigate the cause of the accident and determine which party was truly at fault. If necessary, we can call on an expert to reconstruct the accident. This can give us a better picture of who was at fault and provide us with more evidence. The physical evidence we gather, along with any witness statements, will be assembled to build a strong case on your behalf.

Fight Insurance Companies with Our SUV Accident Lawyers

Insurance companies want to settle claims for the least amount of money possible. When victims lack competent legal representation, this can mean they are inadequately compensated for their injuries and damages. Victims in SUV rollover accidents may face even more difficulties because the insurance company knows SUVs are prone to rollovers.

Our law firm will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf so you can focus on resting and recovering. We have dealt with large and small insurance agencies and are confident in our abilities to negotiate the maximum settlement for your injuries, pain and suffering, property damages, and more.
