WHAT IS A ROLLOVER ACCIDENT?
A rollover accident happens when a car loses its balance and tips over landing on its roof or worse continues rolling. Depending on the car’s velocity and the road’s slope, a car could roll many times over before coming to a halt. Regardless of how many times the vehicle turns over, serious harm can ensue to all the passengers and possibly cause death. Since the car is violently thrown around, rollover crashes have an increased mortality rate as compared to other accidents. They account for 30% of all annual vehicular fatalities claiming about 10,000 lives. There are many different precautions drivers can take to avoid rollovers like choosing cars with a lower center of gravity or a wider wheelbase
CONTROLLING YOUR VEHICLE’S SPEED WHEN ATTEMPTING TURNS AND ALWAYS DRIVING SOBER LOWERS THE RISK OF ROLLOVERS
When interfacing with an insurance company to get compensation for health care expenses and property damage, victims of rollover accidents may be persuaded to accept offers not compatible with the sustained damages or inflicted suffering. Therefore, rather than attempting to handle such negotiations independently, choosing a competent attorney will be the deciding factor in receiving a fair settlement offer. A wide array of variables are factored into such decisions and an attorney must discuss each of them with the plaintiff to find the most suitable for the situations at hand. There are few different ways that an attorney and a judge can settle on requested damages.
Some damages are economic and are intended to provide ample compensation to the victims (and their insurance providers) for financial losses associated with the accident and the injuries caused, including health care expenses and lost wages from missed work. These wages also include any short/long-term disability associated with the injury.
Non-economic damages are more complex and include physical and emotional suffering endured by accident victims. These damages are increasingly more difficult to calculate than economic ones because no paper trail exists to serve as proof. However, pain, anguish and depression caused by gradually worsening health and socio-economic circumstances are all real carry equal if not greater heft that economic damages.
