LAS VEGAS ROLLOVER ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
Experienced Accident Attorney Here For You
You may think of serious and potentially life-threatening car accidents as incidents that generally involve multiple vehicles. At Naqvi Injury Law, our experience as Las Vegas car accident injury attorneys has taught us that one of the most common types of potentially deadly accidents involves single-vehicle rollovers. Rollover accidents can occur in any type of car, truck, or sport utility vehicle that is top heavy. While they generally do not involve collisions with other motorists the way a traditional car accident might, the injuries that result can be severe.
When these types of accidents do occur, our award-winning legal team can help you identify the underlying causes. At Naqvi Injury Law, we pride ourselves on the fact that we have never lost a case, and part of what has earned us the honor of being named as ‘Best of Las Vegas’ among personal injury attorneys is knowing how to get compensation for victims and their loved ones in even the most complex situations.
How Rollover Accidents Occur
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rollover accidents accounted for less than three percent of the estimated nine million car accidents involving passengers vehicles, trucks, SUVs, and vans that occurred during 2010. Despite the relatively small number, rollovers resulted in roughly 35 percent of all traffic fatalities.
Rollover accidents generally occur in trucks and SUVs that are taller, narrower, and more top heavy than other types of vehicles, in which the higher center of gravity makes them more susceptible to rolling over under certain conditions. Common types of rollover accidents include:
- Tripped rollovers: The most common type of rollover, these occur when a vehicle swerves off the road and either hits a curb or guardrail, runs its tire into soft dirt or gravel, or lands on a slope.
- Un-Tipped rollovers:Less common, these generally occur in top-heavy vehicles traveling at high speed during collision avoidance maneuvers, such as speeding or slamming on the brakes to avoid hitting another vehicle.
Either of these types of rollover accidents can occur due to reckless driving behaviors such as speeding, distracted driving, driving under the influence, or tailgating other vehicles. They can also be the result of defects within the vehicle itself. At Naqvi Injury Law, our experience in handling more than 4,000 different types of car accident claims helps us to get to the root cause behind these accidents and the serious injuries that result.
Rollover Accidents and Injuries
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports that in many states, single vehicle accidents are now more common than multi-vehicle collisions. In Nevada, of the nearly 350 motor vehicle deaths that occurred in 2015, more than half resulted from single vehicle accidents, and rollover accidents are often to blame.
The NHTSA reports that rollovers are typically more violent than other types of accidents, They generally involve contact between the driver, the road, and the vehicle, resulting in more severe and potentially life-threatening injuries, including the following:
- Broken bones and multiple fractures;
- Severe cuts and burns, due to being thrown from the vehicle;
- Abdominal injuries, involving damage to the lungs, spleen, and other internal organs;
- Back and neck injuries, including fractured vertebrae and spinal cord damage;
- Head injuries, including severe concussions, skull fractures, and traumatic brain injury.
At Naqvi Injury Law, our Las Vegas car accident injury attorneys understand the serious ramifications these injuries can have on victims and other family members. Extensive, ongoing hospitalization may be required, and drastic changes in lifestyle may need to be implemented. There may be the need for home health aides and continuous care, while you may have to install special ramps and fixtures to account for disabilities.
