While most people associate rollover accidents with sports utility vehicles, many types of cars and trucks can roll over in an accident. If you were injured in a rollover accident or a loved one was killed, it’s important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. You may have a claim not only against the person who caused the accident, but also against the company that manufactured the vehicle.

Preserving Evidence of Vehicle Defects
Auto defect cases are often called “the accident within the accident.” While the defect may not cause the accident, it can contribute greatly to the injuries of the driver and passengers after the accident. In many cases, people suffer catastrophic injuries not because of the accident, but because their vehicle failed to protect them.
Rollover accidents are often caused by unstable vehicle designs: such as a vehicle that has a high center of gravity. Some vehicles, including many pickups, have weak roof pillars that cause the roof to crush in a rollover accident, resulting in severe head and neck injuries.
Whenever a vehicle rolls over in an accident, it’s important to preserve the vehicle so it can be examined by experts. If you contact our lawyers soon enough, we will take steps to store the vehicle so that evidence of the defect is not lost.
