Common Rollover Injuries

Individuals whose vehicles roll over after a collision can sustain injuries in the rollover which are additional to the injuries that were sustained in the initial collision, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries and concussions
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Crush injuries
  • Penetrating injuries (from objects)

Can a Car Roof Get Crushed During a Rollover?

Vehicle roofs are designed to withstand the forces that are applied in the event of a vehicle rollover. Unfortunately, there are some vehicle defects that exist resulting in the roofs being crushed and collapsing on the vehicle’s occupants when a vehicle rolls over. This can cause serious injuries and even death to the individuals inside the vehicle. If you have been injured by a vehicle roof that collapsed during a rollover, we can help you take action against any or all of the parties whose negligence may have contributed to your injuries.

Important Vehicle Recalls

In some instances, a vehicle will be recalled due to its instability in a rollover. When the vehicles have been manufactured and designed with an inadequate roof structure, occupants can become seriously injured. We regularly handle cases for clients who have been injured in vehicles that have been recalled due to a product defect.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
