Chicago Rollover Accident Lawyers
While all automobile accidents have the potential to be dangerous, rollover accidents are more likely to be catastrophic due to the physics of the accident itself. When a vehicle rolls over one or more times, the resulting injuries to a victim can be life changing or even fatal. Even worse, these accidents are often caused by auto defects or the driving behaviors of other motorists.
At Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, our Chicago legal team believes that the careless parties responsible for a victim’s suffering should be held accountable for the consequences of their actions. Individuals involved in these accidents can be left to deal with not only severe injuries, but extensive medical bills and lost wages as well. While a lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind, taking legal action as quickly as possible is vital to give yourself the best chance possible of securing the compensation you need for your accident-related losses.
Common Causes of Rollover Accidents
While some rollover accidents occur because of the inherent design of top-heavy SUVs, others occur for preventable reasons caused by a reckless party. Some of these reasons include:
Rollover Accidents Caused by another Driver
Drivers on the road are rightfully expected to exhibit appropriate driving behaviors in order to keep everyone on the road safe. Unfortunately, not all drivers act with such necessary caution and reckless drivers cause rollover accidents far too often. Whether a driver ignores traffic signals or drives while intoxicated, there are a number of dangerous driving behaviors that could ultimately lead to a rollover.
Rollover Accidents Caused by Automotive Defects
Sadly, there are countless vehicles on the road that have manufacturing or design defects that could lead to a rollover accident. With that in mind, negligent manufacturers or automobile companies may be held accountable for the injuries and suffering a victim endures due to these accidents.
Rollover Accidents Caused by Road Defects
Local municipalities and other governing bodies are responsible for keeping roads safe and free of obstructions. While many maintain this responsibility, road defects can occur and lead to devastating rollover accidents, especially when a vehicle is traveling at high speeds. In many cases, the municipalities and/or other parties in charge of these roadways may be held accountable when road defects cause or contribute to rollover accidents.
Rollover accidents are some of the most severe motor vehicle accidents, leaving victims with lacerations, brain injuries, spinal cord problems, and many other serious consequences. While some of these collisions may be unavoidable, those caused by a reckless party occur far too often. The legal team at Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, is dedicated to helping victims of these accidents build strong, compelling cases against parties responsible for such devastating accidents.
