Car Rollover Accident Attorneys in Baltimore
We Hold Negligent Vehicle Manufacturers Accountable
Every year in the United States, we see over 250,000 rollover car accidents. These devastating accidents lead to over 10,000 deaths each year – which is roughly one-third of all car-related deaths.
Rollover accidents can be caused by the negligence of another driver or by a defect in the vehicle itself. When a design or manufacturing flaw is to blame for a rollover accident, the responsible party must be held accountable.
The victims of rollover accidents often suffer:
- Spinal injury
- Head trauma and brain injury
- Neck fractures
If you have suffered an injury in a rollover accident caused by a defective auto product – often the roof in these cases – you may be eligible to pursue a product liability claim against the vehicle manufacturer, designer, or other responsible party. At Ashcraft & Gerel, we fight hard to hold these parties accountable for the damage they have caused. Our Baltimore auto rollover accident lawyers are here to help you build a strong claim.
Types of Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents can occur under a variety of circumstances.
The three main types of rollovers are:
- Tripped rollovers: The majority of single-vehicle rollovers are tripped, in which the vehicle hits an object like a guardrail, a curb, or a slope
- Un-tripped rollovers: Though un-tripped rollovers are less common than tripped rollovers, they can still cause serious damage. Un-tripped rollovers tend to occur at high speeds when the driver makes a sharp turn or some other maneuver.
- Multi-vehicle rollover accidents: Rollovers can also occur when multiple vehicles are involved in the accident. A vehicle could roll over when it is struck from the side.
