Chesterfield Rollover Accident Attorneys
Helping the Injured in Missouri
Large trucks, SUVs, semis, and big rigs are more prone to rolling over and causing serious accidents than other types of vehicles. Pickup trucks and passenger vans are higher from the ground than passenger cars and are therefore also more likely to cause rollover accidents. Rollover accidents are caused by excessive speed, dangerous turning maneuvers, or if a truck’s load was not balanced properly.
Causes of Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents can be caused by the following factors:
- Excessive speed
- Careless turning and maneuvering around a turn or curve
- Alcohol or drug use
- Reckless driving
- Driver fatigue or excessive hours of driving
- Improper lane change
- Inappropriate maneuvering
- Improperly balanced loads
Rollover accidents kill more than 10,000 people each year in the United States.
Compensation for Rollover Accidents
Unlike many other types of accidents, people who are involved in a rollover accident generally suffer more serious injuries. Victims who survive rollover accidents may have major injuries requiring years of recovery or a lifetime of care. The rate of serious injury in passenger vehicle rollover crashes is 36 percent higher than in crashes where there is no rollover.
Through consultation with medical experts, we help families if needed with an expert determine a life-care plan that covers future surgery, physical therapy, home modifications, and other long-term needs, including at-home nursing help and other aides. Victims can also collect for medical bills, lost wages and future earning potential, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment. In wrongful death claims, we represent family members in recovering damages for lost income, loss of companionship of the loved one, and for emotional distress.
