Tampa Rollover Accident Injury Lawyer

A rollover accident is among the most dangerous kind of vehicle crashes. With the highest fatality rate, over seven thousand people are killed every year in rollover accidents. Whether the accident is fatal, or not, the Coleman Law Group can act on your behalf as your rollover accident lawyer.

If your vehicle turns over onto the roof or side your accident is classified as a rollover. The vehicle does not need to make a spectacular flip over and over like in the movies. So, even if your vehicle slid onto its side, or landed on the roof without much drama, it still counts!

Rollovers are more common because of the changes in the vehicles on our nation's highways. There are more SUVs and light trucks, which are more likely to roll over because of their higher center of gravity. Typically, rollover accidents involve only one vehicle losing control:

  • in icy or snowy road conditions
  • on a soft road shoulder
  • over uneven ground
  • colliding with a curb or guardrail after losing traction
  • hitting an obstacle

The exact cause of the accident requires evidence gathering by your rollover accident lawyer, so a claim can be made under your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) policy.

Rollover Accident Lawyer Can Help with Common Injuries

Rollover accidents are more likely to cause:

  • Back and neck injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Injuries to the abdomen
  • Brain injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Injuries and broken bones in the arms and/or legs
  • Cuts, scrapes, and bruises
  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Paraplegia

 

Slamming into an obstacle or another vehicle, having contact with torn metal or broken glass, being tossed around in the vehicle, or being ejected all are more likely than not to cause injuries. Long-term effects can impact the rest of your life.

What to Do After a Rollover Accident

First, notify the authorities and seek appropriate medical attention. Florida law requires you contact local police if you have a car accident in Sarasota. The responding police officer produces a report to outline the facts in the case from an objective perspective.

Some physical symptoms are not always immediately apparent, so seek medical attention immediately. Plus, if you postpone getting medical attention, it could decrease your chances of discovering a significant injury and worsen your condition. See a doctor!

Rear-End Collision - Determining Fault

Determining fault in a Sarasota rear-end case could be obvious, but it is not always automatic. Most rear end accidents are at least partially the fault of the driver in the back. Sometimes the driver in front contributes to some degree.

For example:

  • Faulty brake lights
  • The stopped car remains partially in the road with no warning lights
  • A sudden stop or shifting into reverse

 

By far, not the most common situations. It is usually the rear driver at fault, therefore determining fault is often relatively straightforward.

Damages in Rear-End Accidents

Once your Sarasota Rear End Accident Lawyer has completed determining fault, the case revolves around damages. Specific injuries tend to appear frequently. Importantly, these types of injuries are often not apparent right away, so victims often notice changes a day or more after the accident.

Back and Neck Injuries

The force as the vehicle strikes the car from behind puts enormous stress on your back and neck.

Head and Brain Injuries

Some of the most severe and catastrophic injuries are quite common in rear-end cases.

Airbag Injuries

When your airbags deploy instantly, they hit you with a powerful force, the resulting injuries can affect almost anywhere on your body.
