Atlanta Vehicle Rollover Accident Lawyer

Free Consultation

Drivers in Georgia face the risk of a rollover accident on any given trip — not only when they are involved in a collision but also when they encounter traction issues, run over a curb, hit debris, or even enter a turn too sharply.

The results of a rollover accident can be devastating, often causing severe neck, head, and spinal injuries. In many cases, these accidents will lead to one or more fatalities.

Vehicle occupants are placed at extreme risk, especially when the design of the vehicle they are in makes it more likely that they will sustain life-threatening injuries in the event of a rollover.

Ali Awad and the rest of the CEO Lawyer Personal Injury Law Firm team are prepared to help you do whatever it takes to recover from the expenses inflicted by your rollover accident. Our team of Atlanta vehicle rollover accident lawyers can help you file a claim against an at-fault driver, the manufacturer of a defective vehicle, or another liable party in order to pay your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

What Damages Can an Atlanta Vehicle Rollover Accident Attorney Help Me Recover?

Any car accident is likely to cause severe physical and financial damages. Because of the severity of rollover accidents, these damages are even more likely to be significant, inflicting a major strain on your health, savings, household budget, and quality of life.

Fortunately, you may have a legal recourse in the form of a personal injury claim. Filed against the at-fault party (or parties) responsible for your injuries, your claim can help you recover damages for the following types of expenses:

  • Medical bills, including all past treatment costs for hospitalization, surgery, exams, tests, medications, and appointments, as well as the projected costs of any needed future care
  • Lost wages, providing you with the amount you would have earned had you not been injured, including all regular wages as well as compensation for lost benefits, commissions, bonuses, and other performance-based pay you would have likely earned
  • Out-of-pocket expenses, reimbursing you for costs made directly necessary by your accident, such as the costs of a rental vehicle or transportation to your medical appointments
  • Pain and suffering compensation for the personal hardship, anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life you have experienced
  • Vehicle repair or replacement benefits, as well as reimbursement for the costs of any other personal property damaged and destroyed in the accident
  • Wrongful death damages, providing funds for funeral and burial, as well as loss of household income

Valuing all of these damages is rarely easy, as they must both be thoroughly documented and traced back directly to the actions of the at-fault party. Your Atlanta personal injury attorney will help you calculate the full cost of all losses you have experienced — as well as those you are projected to experience — by reviewing your financial records and consulting with subject matter experts.

Our sole goal is to help you avoid paying out-of-pocket for your medical care and any other costs you have encountered through no fault of your own.

Who Is Considered Responsible for My Rollover Accident Costs?

The party who holds liability for your accident will differ depending on the circumstances of your crash and any other factors that contributed to your injuries.

In most cases, a rollover crash will involve a claim against one or more of the following parties:

  • Another driver who hit you or otherwise caused the accident
  • The manufacturer of a vehicle with a defect or dangerous design
  • The owner of private property with a dangerous condition that led to the accident
  • The agency responsible for designing or maintaining a roadway that had a dangerous flaw
  • A maintenance services provider who created a dangerous condition in the vehicle or unacceptably allowed one to persist

Other Drivers

In many cases, a rollover accident will occur after an initial collision with another vehicle. The force of the impact may trigger a rollover, or the forced departure of the victim’s vehicle from the roadway may lead to the vehicle rolling over, causing further damage.

In these cases, the fault is determined by whether the actions of the other driver constituted negligence, meaning that they failed to drive in a safe, responsible way that is compliant with all road laws. Any injury claim against the driver would be filed against their liability insurance provider.

Vehicle Manufacturers

Many rollover accidents would not have occurred if not for dangerous vehicle designs and other flaws, including a lack of acceptable roof integrity.

Data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) shows that 24% of rollovers occur with no initial impact event. Instead, the vehicle’s high center of gravity, coupled with a loss of traction, creates a situation where a rollover occurs, putting everyone in the vehicle at risk.

Rollovers are both common and often deadly, contributing to nearly a third (29%) of all vehicle occupant deaths in 2021, according to the IIHS. Single-vehicle rollover crashes are more likely to result in deaths, with 49% of all single-vehicle accident deaths involving a rollover.

Manufacturers are liable when their vehicles’ dangerous designs, flaws in manufacturing, or failures to adequately caution the public lead to substantial harm. Injury victims may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer — or sue them directly.

For example, a recent Georgia trial resulted in a $1.7 billion verdict against the Ford Motor Company after the tires on a 2002 F-250 pickup separated and led to a fatal rollover accident.

Other Liable Parties

In some cases, liability for rollover accident injuries falls upon property owners and those responsible for maintaining a property — including government agencies like the Georgia DOT. If the property had a dangerous condition, such as debris or a curve without adequate speed warnings, then a resulting rollover could become the basis of an injury claim.

Rollovers can also be caused when a maintenance shop or dealership fails to provide the expected level of consideration before returning the vehicle to the owner, such as if they failed to properly secure the lug nuts on a tire or left a crucial traction control system disabled.

Your attorney will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident in order to determine who, exactly, contributed to the fault and what their corresponding level of blame would be for your injuries. In the event that multiple parties are considered at fault, each will be assigned a percentage of damages based on the respective amount of fault they contributed.

How Can I Increase My Chances of Receiving a Payout After a Rollover Accident?

There are many steps you can take in order to preserve your right to seek compensation for the injuries you have suffered. Some of the most important tasks are listed below.

Report the Accident

Always report an accident. Ideally, you will call 911 at the scene and have a police officer arrive to render assistance.

If you did not report the accident initially, you can always file a Georgia crash report online. Make sure to note whether injuries occurred and that a rollover occurred during the crash events.

Seek Prompt Medical Attention

For your health and safety and the preservation of your legal rights, it is always vital to get medical care as soon as possible after a rollover accident. Everyone who was in the vehicle should receive a full medical examination, as they may have latent injuries that will not emerge until multiple days have passed.

An exam is crucial because it not only helps you begin treatment earlier, raising your chances of a positive outcome, but it also connects the injuries to the event of the crash. Always consent to all imaging and tests needed to fully rule out conditions like a traumatic brain injury, fracture, whiplash, or damage to internal organs.

Save all medical documentation, and begin keeping track of all treatment-related expenses. Also, adhere to your doctor’s recommendations, including reducing activity or missing work, until you have recovered function and are able to return to your prior routine.

Save All Receipts and Other Documentation

Keep track of all costs stemming from your rollover accident. Factor in the costs of vehicle towing, repairs, any transportation needed while your vehicle is unavailable for use, and any over-the-counter remedies needed for your medical conditions in addition to medical bills.

Take Photos of Your Injuries and the Crash Site

Take extensive photo documentation of your crash, including damage to your vehicle and your injuries as they develop.

Defer Conversation With Insurers to Your Attorney

Avoid providing more information than needed when communicating with insurers about your injury claim. Better yet, avoid talking to insurers altogether by hiring an experienced and proven Atlanta vehicle rollover accident attorney team.

Help Negotiating with Insurance Carriers

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries. Many victims feel pressured to accept these offers as the bills begin to pile up, but that is rarely a good idea. The insurance company is looking to protect its bottom line; and will offer injured victims less than they deserve. An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
