Rollover Accidents

Virginia Rollover Accident Attorneys

Car Accident Attorneys in Norfolk, Newport News & Roanoke

Many drivers believe trucks and SUVs provide better protection in an accident because of their size. This is one reason for their increased popularity in recent years. However, as statistics from The National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicate, SUVs especially are more likely to roll over in the event of an accident.

The NHTSA states that rollover accidents account for:

  • 22% of passenger car fatalities
  • 44% of pickup fatalities
  • 61% of SUV fatalities

Common Causes of Rollover Accidents

If the vehicle in question has a narrow wheel base, or is top heavy with a high center of gravity, the chances of rollover also increase. Thus, trucks and SUVs are more likely to roll over than smaller vehicles because they have a higher center of gravity. When turning sharply, the high center of gravity makes SUVs top-heavy, which causes them to tip sideways and roll over. Unfortunately, this often results in catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. These accidents can also be fatal.

The most common causes of rollover accidents are:

  • Turning too sharply
  • Turning too fast
  • Faulty tires
  • Inclement weather causing poor road conditions
  • Defective vehicles
  • Road defects (potholes, construction issues)

Manufacturers who fail to take certain safety precautions to reduce the chances of a rollover accident may liable for their defective product.

Personal Injury Claims

One of the first steps in dealing with a rollover accident should be to consult with a car accident lawyer in Virginia. At Kalfus & Nachman PC, we offer a no-cost consultation to outline your rights and determine the strength of your case. Rollover accident can take the form of personal injury claims or defective product claims.

If you have experienced injury or suffering as a result of an auto accident, you may have a legal right to compensation. The other driver's insurance company will frequently attempt to get out of their obligation to pay your medical bills and other damages. They may try to trick you into making statements or signing documents that damage your case, or just deny your claim and hope you give up. At Kalfus & Nachman PC, our Virginia personal injury lawyers will begin as soon as possible to fight for fair compensation.

Defective Product Claims

Many rollovers are one-vehicle accidents, in which there is no other driver whose insurance can relieve your financial burden. However, because SUVs and pickups are more prone to roll over in accidents than other cars, we may be able to help you win damages from the manufacturer for producing an unsafe vehicle. Kalfus & Nachman PC serves Norfolk, Hampton, Newport News, Portsmouth, Roanoke, and Virginia Beach, Virginia.
