Seattle Rollover Accident Attorney
While it is true that vehicles with a high center of gravity — SUVs, pickup trucks, etc. — are more prone to rollover accidents, there are a number of contributing factors. If we find, for example, that a tire blowout caused the vehicle to lose stability and rollover, we can expand our negotiations to include the tire manufacturer. Clients rely on our experience and knowledge of the law to ensure they receive the full and fair monetary compensation they are owed.
Dangers of a Rollover Accident
It is common in vehicle rollover accidents for drivers and passengers to be injured when the roof caves in. This is commonly referred to as "roof crush," and it can cause severe head, neck and spinal cord injuries. Often, if safety features fail (such as door latches, seat backs and seat belts), drivers or passengers can be thrown, or ejected, from the vehicle. When this happens, the individual runs the risk of being crushed by the vehicle itself or hit by other cars on the road. All of these situations are serious and can lead to catastrophic injury or wrongful death. Contact our firm immediately to discuss your accident.
