Let a Fort Lauderdale Auto Accident Lawyer Help You Recover from Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents are among the most dangerous (and most frightening) types of motor vehicle crashes. Losing total control and having your vehicle roll on its side or upside down can be extremely traumatic, and it will often lead to devastating injuries. At Maus Law Firm, we handle rollover accident cases throughout South Florida. We represent drivers and passengers who have suffered serious injuries, and we represent grieving families in claims for wrongful death. If you are entitled to financial compensation, our auto accident attorneys can determine who (or what company) is liable, and we will fight to make sure you receive the financial compensation you deserve.
Who is Liable in a Vehicle Rollover Accident?
When seeking to recover your losses after a serious or fatal auto accident, the first step is to determine who is liable. In rollover accident cases, there are several parties that could potentially be liable for your losses. These include:
- Another Driver – If another driver hit your vehicle or forced you out of your lane, then that driver (or his or her insurance company) could be liable.
- Your Vehicle’s Manufacturer – While vehicles are supposed to be designed such that the risk of a rollover is minimized, some vehicles (and certain SUVs in particular) are designed in such a way that the risk of a rollover remains high.
- A Part Manufacturer – If a part failure caused your vehicle to rollover (i.e. if you experienced a tire blowout), then the part manufacturer could hold legal responsibility for your crash.
- A Government Agency or Contractor – If an issue with the road caused your accident (i.e. if your vehicle flipped due to a pothole or low shoulder), then you could have a claim against the government agency or contractor that is responsible for the road.
What Factors Can Impact Your Claim for Compensation?
As the victim of a rollover accident, there are a number of factors that can impact the value of your claim. One of these factors is comparative fault. If an investigation reveals that you were partially at fault in the crash, then this could reduce the amount of your financial recovery.
While comparative fault can potentially reduce your recovery, there are a number of other factors that our attorneys can use to help maximize the amount of your settlement or verdict. For example, by demonstrating the force of impact or the number of times your vehicle rolled, we can paint a clear picture of the severity of your crash. Our attorneys will also work with your doctors to understand the long-term impacts of your injuries, and this will be a critical factor in determining how much you are entitled to recover for your financial and non-financial losses.
