Cumming Rollover Accident Attorneys
All car accidents can be serious, but rollover accidents are arguably the most dangerous of all – and the most terrifying. When a car rolls over, the risk of its occupants being seriously injured in the process is exceedingly high. If you’ve been injured in a rollover that was caused by another driver or party, reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney in Forsyth County today.
Possible Causes of Rollovers
When a car rolls over on the road, it could be for several different reasons. The following are some common causes of this type of crash:
- Speeding - Speed is often a factor in a rollover crash. If a driver tries to take a curve or turn too fast, it can cause the vehicle to tip over. Hitting a curb at high speeds can also “trip” a vehicle and cause it to roll.
- Distracted Drivers – Because distracted drivers do not pay adequate attention to the road and the traffic all around them, they’re far more likely to elicit rollovers. Drivers whose vehicles roll over are very often reacting to a danger on the roadway, such as a distracted driver who drifts out of his or her lane and suddenly cuts the rollover victim off.
- Impaired Drivers – Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol are unpredictable and often cause crashes. In fact, impaired drivers are far more likely to make the kind of unexpected moves on the road that can lead to devastating rollovers.
- Road Hazards - If a driver hits an obstacle in the road, it can cause the vehicle to flip over, especially at highway speeds.
- Tire Blowouts - If a tire is defective or overly worn, it can suddenly blow out while someone is driving. This can cause a driver to lose control, leading the car to roll.
Any type of vehicle can roll over, though vehicles with a higher center of gravity and a narrow wheelbase are particularly prone to this type of accident. These include SUVs, large vans, semi-trucks, and buses.
Rollover accidents are so dangerous that the list of possible injuries is endless. Those injuries that are more common, however, include:
- Spinal cord injuries, which can lead to permanent paralysis
- Back and neck injuries
- Cuts, lacerations, and burns – all of which can be disfiguring if on or near the face
- Broken bones, which can include bones in the face, skull, or neck
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
Suffering any one of these injuries is exceedingly difficult and potentially deadly. We can help ensure you get the treatment you need so you can start on your path toward recovery.
