Any car accident is a dangerous and possibly deadly situation, but rollover accidents are particularly dangerous and have a significantly higher fatality rate when compared to other types of accidents. In fact, rollover accidents accounted for more than ⅓ of all fatal car accidents in 2010, while accounting for only 2% of all accidents that year. This staggering statistic alone should give you a good idea of why these accidents are so dangerous, and why anyone in a rollover that someone else caused deserves to be compensated fairly for every impact that this accident may have on their life.

The Danger Of a Rollover Accident
Even a fender-bender can be dangerous depending on the specifics of the crash, but a rollover accident is one of the most dangerous types of accidents to be involved in, if for nothing else than how unpredictable the impacts of the collision will be. When a car is struck from the front, side, or back, there are many different safety mechanisms in place, such as airbags, restraints, and other devices that help to absorb the impact and cushion the passenger; however, a rollover accident means that the passenger is being thrown in many directions in rapid succession.
The rollover means that the passenger is pulled, thrown, and pushed in one direction, then the other, and another, causing serious damage to their soft tissues with whiplash, in addition to throwing them against many different surfaces and structures inside the vehicle. Depending on the speed of the rollover, these changes in direction and impacts from different angles can all happen in rapid succession.
Without getting into much more specific detail, you can imagine why these types of accidents are so catastrophic for anyone involved.
Filing an Insurance Claim After a Rollover Accident
There are a lot of specifics that we will need to go over in order to solidify your rollover accident case, since there are many times when the rollover is a secondary result of the initial crash, and in many cases may have happened without an initial crash as the victim is attempting to avoid a reckless driver. We will have to develop a clear timeline of the events that help us to prove that the other driver is at fault, regardless of the details of the rollover itself. If someone else was driving recklessly or negligently and you were hurt in a rollover accident as a result, then you deserve compensation.
The reality of your insurance claim is that the insurance company is going to attempt to limit your settlement amount by any means possible, meaning that they may try to blame you for the rollover, even if they accept that their client initiated the accident. They may try to argue that you could have avoided the rollover if you had taken the appropriate actions, which is a ridiculous claim to make but one that may ultimately lead to you getting less money in your settlement. The team at Fasig | Brooks will not let these claims go uncontested.
