An Atlanta Vehicle Rollover Accident Lawyer Can Represent You

A rollover accident is a car accident that involves a vehicle tipping over onto its side or rolling completely over until it is upside down. In some cases, the car may roll over multiple times before it comes to rest. If a rollover accident in Georgia has caused property damage, injury, or even serious injuries or the death of a loved one, an Atlanta rollover accident lawyer at Gilormo Injury Law can help. 

Common Causes of Rollover Accidents

Rollover car accidents can be caused by any number of unsafe driver behaviors, but some of the most common causes include:

Aggressive Driving.

Aggressive and risky driving, such as taking sudden turns or swerving at a high rate of speed, are common causes of rollovers. Sudden maneuvers like these can cause friction between the tires and the surface of the road, causing the vehicle to tip and flip over. Vans, trucks, and heavily loaded vehicles are particularly susceptible to sudden-maneuver rollovers.

Loss of Driver Control.

Drivers who lose control of their vehicles are particularly susceptible to rollovers. Falling asleep, driving while impaired, and various types of distracted driving such as using a phone, fiddling with various dashboard controls, and interacting with passengers, especially passengers in the back seat, may all cause a driver to lose control. Striking some obstruction in the road or a curb may throw off a vehicle’s center of gravity, and the forward momentum may cause the vehicle to roll over.

Multi-Vehicle Accidents. 

Single-vehicle rollovers are most common, but if a vehicle is hit side-on and pushed over by the force of the oncoming vehicle, it may roll. In other words, when the upper part of a vehicle is struck by sufficient force while the tires retain their grip on the surface, rollovers often occur.

Injuries Associated with Vehicle Rollover Accidents

Rollover car accidents in Atlanta cause any number of injuries to those involved, especially if they are not wearing seatbelts. Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries. The tremendous forces involved in a rollover crash can contribute to serious back injuries.
  • Neck Injuries. Whiplash, slipped discs, herniated discs, and nerve damage are common injuries caused by rollovers.
  • Head and Traumatic Brain Injuries. Injuries such as skull fractures, lacerations to the head, and brain injuries are particularly damaging and can often be prevented by seat belts.
  • Broken Bones. Broken arms, legs, ankles, and other bones are often caused by the multiple impacts that often occur in rollover collisions.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries. Injuries such as lacerations, bruises, torn ligaments, pulled muscles, and damaged tendons are quite common.

Product Defects Resulting in Crushed Vehicle Roofs

Although vehicle accidents, in general, generate large amounts of energy and force, these dissipate gradually as a vehicle rolls, so there is relatively little sudden, damaging force when compared to, for example, a head-on collision. A main concern for rollover accidents is crush injuries from the roof caving in.

Although the auto industry is aware of the relationship between roof crush and head and neck injuries, they have been slow to respond with higher quality roof designs. Most vehicle roofs are designed to simply meet minimum federal safety standards.

For victims of roof crush, the best option is to let an Atlanta rollover accident lawyer help you bring a product defect claim for the defective vehicle roof. 

However, a product liability lawsuit for roof crush injuries may require extensive investigation by vehicle design and manufacturing experts. The Atlanta vehicle rollover accident attorneys at Gilormo Injury Law have the experience and access to the right experts to hold the sellers and manufacturers of defective vehicle roofs responsible for these types of defects.
