San Jose Rollover Accident Attorney

Bay Area Lawyer Representing Injured Victims of Rollover Accidents

Many circumstances can lead to a rollover accident. These are some of the most perilous types of car accidents or truck accidents. When a vehicle turns over onto its side or roof, drivers and passengers may be seriously injured. Vehicles that have rolled over may also create dangerous obstacles in the road, which could lead to additional collisions with other vehicles.

There are many factors that may lead to a rollover accident, and determining who was at fault may be a complex matter. To make sure these issues will be addressed correctly, people who have been involved in these types of accidents will want to make sure they have legal representation from an experienced attorney. John J. Garvey, III has extensive experience in these types of cases, and he can work with injury victims to pursue compensation for damages such as medical expenses, repairing or replacing a vehicle or other property, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Addressing the Causes of Rollover Accidents

Clients of the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III have been involved in car crashes caused or worsened by factors such as:

  • Dangerous road conditions: Rollovers may occur because of slippery surfaces, bridges without shoulders, or tunnels with poor visibility. Large potholes, objects in the road, or other conditions may also lead to rollover accidents when drivers need to swerve to avoid obstacles at high speeds.
  • Defective auto design: Many SUVs and other large vehicles have proven to be especially susceptible to rollover crashes due to balance issues, tire defects, or other design problems. In these situations, a vehicle's occupants may suffer injuries due to roof crushes caused by poor automobile design and manufacture.
  • Driver distraction: Drivers who turn to check on children in the back seat, attempt to eat food or drink beverages while driving, or do not fully pay attention to the road may make errors that could lead to rollover collisions.
  • Speeding: When a car or truck collides with another vehicle at a high rate of speed, one or both vehicles may roll over. Rollover accidents may also occur when a driver overcorrects after making errors while driving at a high speed.
  • Poor road design: Some roads may have a higher risk of rollover accidents due to design flaws or other issues. For example, posted speed limits that are inappropriate based on the curves of the road may put drivers at risk of losing control and rolling over.

Evaluating Injuries in Rollovers

Rollover accidents may lead to multiple types of catastrophic injuries. A San Jose rollover accident lawyer can help ensure that you understand the full extent of your injuries before accepting any insurance settlement. You may need to seek compensation for medical treatment and other damages you have suffered due to serious injuries, including:

To maximize your chances of a successful recovery, it is important to obtain qualified medical advice and treatment. In some cases, you may be able to recover fully. However, rollover accidents often result in injuries that lead to medical problems or physical limitations that will require a permanent change in your lifestyle.
