Car rollover accidents are more common than you might think and have the highest potential of leading to fatalities, according to statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Motor vehicle accidents that result in car rollovers can lead to serious injuries, and sometimes even death, for the accident victims involved. When a car rolls over in an accident, the occupants of the car may suffer broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, and even death. The sad part about many of these rollover accidents is that a great majority of them can be prevented by exercising care and caution while driving.

The knowledgeable team of Chicago personal injury lawyers at Malman Law can assist you with asserting a legal claim or filing a lawsuit against the responsible party or parties.
Sadly, there are many common causes of car rollover accidents. In most cases, a car rollover accident occurs when the vehicle’s center of gravity is altered. This can happen under a variety of circumstances, including all of the following:
If you are a vehicle passenger who is involved in a car rollover accident, you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against the individual who was driving your vehicle, assuming that person acted unreasonably or did something wrong under the circumstances.
Moreover, if you are a driver or a passenger who was injured in a car rollover accident that was caused by another driver, you may be able to assert a claim or lawsuit against that driver for damages.
Given the serious injuries that often result from car rollover accidents, you may be able to pursue significant monetary compensation, including payment of all related medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages. Moreover, if you lost a loved one in a car rollover accident that was caused by someone else, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit against the driver who caused the accident. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can file a claim or lawsuit on your behalf against all potentially at-fault parties.
