Vehicle Rollover Accident Lawyers South Florida
Car Accident Attorneys Fight to Win Compensation for Clients Injured in Vehicle Rollover Accidents in Broward County, Palm Beach County, and Across South Florida
Vehicle rollover accidents are a particularly violent and dangerous type of car accident, and often result in catastrophic injuries, including paralysis, traumatic brain injury, and even death. A vehicle rollover accident occurs when the vehicle flips onto its side or roof during an accident, and in particularly violent cases, the vehicle may flip over several times. Because of this, injuries to the head and spine are common in vehicle rollover accidents, especially if the driver or a passenger was not wearing a seatbelt.

Vehicle Rollover Accidents Can Be Especially Dangerous
Vehicle rollover accidents are most commonly associated with sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and trucks because the design of these vehicles gives them a higher-than-usual center of gravity. However, smaller cars can also be involved in vehicle rollover accidents if conditions are right. Vehicle rollover accidents may be caused by a number of factors, including:
- Road conditions: If the vehicle hits something on the roadway while travelling at a high speed, it could cause the vehicle to roll over. Similarly, if the driver notices an unexpected object in the road, he or she may overcorrect to avoid it, causing a rollover.
- Weight: A vehicle with too much weight tied to the top of the car has an increased likelihood of rolling over because the location of the vehicle’s center of gravity is changed.
- Driver fatigue: In some cases, a fatigued driver may drift into another lane and then overcorrect, causing a rollover accident.
- Driver aggression: An aggressive driver who is driving at excessive speeds and frequently passing other vehicles can lose control of the vehicle and cause a rollover.
If the defective manufacture or dangerous design of the vehicle caused the rollover accident, the manufacturer can be held liable. Similarly, if a negligent driver’s actions caused the rollover accident, he or she may be held responsible for the costs of your injuries.

FAQ: What type of compensation can I recover if my loved one was killed in a rollover accident caused by another party’s negligence?
In a wrongful death lawsuit, you can recover damages for the costs of medical care received by your loved one, as well as damages for pain and suffering, loss of support, and loss of companionship with respect to the individual who was killed in the rollover accident. Our attorneys will work to maximize the amount of compensation that you can receive from the negligent parties and their insurance companies.
FAQ: Will I have to go to court to recover compensation if I was injured in a vehicle rollover accident?
In most rollover accident cases, compensation will be agreed upon before going to trial. Our attorneys will negotiate with the insurance companies and defense attorneys with the goal of agreeing to a full and fair compensation package before a lawsuit is filed. However, if we have to file a lawsuit, this often motivates the insurance companies to settle in order to avoid the time and expense of a trial.
