Larimer County personal injury lawyer rollover accident

When a car rolls over, the driver and passengers can suffer serious injuries or fatalities. The roof of a passenger car is not built to withstand the weight of the lower half of the vehicle, and therefore, it is likely to collapse. Even a minor car accident can lead to painful injuries, but when extreme trauma is involved, a victim may be temporarily or permanently disabled. In some cases, another driver’s negligence may have caused the rollover crash, and a victim can file a personal injury lawsuit. 

Proving Negligence

Larger vehicles, such as SUVs and commercial trucks, are more likely to roll over than a compact car. This is because the center of gravity is higher on large automobiles. A quick turn or maneuver can easily cause a larger vehicle to flip over. A driver may try to act quickly in response to another driver’s actions, and that reaction may cause their car to turn over. A car may also roll over if forced off the road.

On March 26, a 51-year-old woman was fatally injured near Lyons when she veered off the road and lost control of her vehicle. After swerving off the right side of the road, the driver over-corrected, which ultimately caused the vehicle to roll over. As the vehicle rolled, the woman, who was not wearing her seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead when medical personnel arrived on the scene. 

Despite the fact that rollover accidents make up a small percentage of motor vehicle accidents, they are among the most dangerous. If you or a loved one were injured in a rollover crash due to another driver’s negligence, seek experienced legal guidance immediately.
