One of the most traumatic types of accidents that can occur are those that involve a vehicle rollover. In the aftermath of a rollover accident you, or a member of your family, can suffer extremely serious injuries. Fatality rates are higher than with any other type of crash. Consequently, it is imperative that you engage the services of a qualified, experienced and dedicated Minnesota rollover accident attorney to fight for the compensation you deserve.
OVERVIEW OF ROLLOVER ACCIDENTS
There are two general categories of rollover accidents:
Design Defect: Some rollover accidents occur as the result of a design defect. SUV rollovers are the most common example of a design defect rollover case. SUVs are designed with a high center of gravity, which make them more likely to tip and roll over than vehicles. Statistics show that SUV rollovers are three times as likely to occur than a similar situation with passenger vehicles.
Negligence: Other rollover accidents result from the negligence of other drivers on the roadway. As a result of failing to yield, inattentive driving, driver fatigue, driver intoxication or other careless conduct, drivers end up having their vehicles violently rollover, causing serious damage and injury.
