Advocating for You: Personal Injury & Rollover Accident Lawyers
Unintentional injuries account for over 100,000 deaths in the United States each year. Furthermore, roughly 35% of these fatalities are the direct result of an automobile accident. Car collisions are not something to be taken lightly. Even in cases which involve no injuries, victims still have to contend with a mountain of legal fees and property damages. These cases, in particular, eat up a lot of time and energy. Especially when the victim does not receive proper legal guidance.
Of course, not all car crashes are created equally. In fact, there are many different classifications for these accidents, ranging from fender benders to head-on collisions and rollover accidents. If you are involved in a rollover accident, chances are you are not going to come out the other side unscathed. This type of car crash boasts the second-highest rate of vehicle fatalities, falling just short of head-on collisions. Furthermore, the data only becomes even grimmer for passengers who are involved in these accidents. For instance, studies show that passengers in rollover accidents are 6% more likely not to survive than the vehicle operator.

Common Types of Insurance Claims that We Settle
Car accidents generate roughly 230 billion dollars in damages every year. Of course, this figure fluctuates from year to year. However, the major point here is that a lot of car crashes occur annually. And, when these accidents do occur, they’re often very expensive for all parties involved. Here are a few common forms of rollover accidents that The Ward Law Group has experience in handling:
- Distracted Driving: Distracted driving behaviors are defined as anything that takes your mind off the task of driving safely while out on the road. This could be texting while driving, eating, applying makeup, talking with passengers, and much more. Currently, this is one of the top causes of car accidents in the world. As such, many laws restricting these behaviors are now coming into play.
- Drunk Driving: Nearly half of all rollover accidents involve a drunk driver. Contrary to popular belief, alcohol impairment may occur from any blood alcohol concentration above .00. Alcohol negatively affects the driver’s muscle coordination, vision, and judgment. All of these factors dramatically increase the likelihood of a rollover accident occurring.
- Truck Accidents: Large commercial trucks, in particular, are at a higher risk of being involved in a rollover accident as they are top-heavy. Rollover accidents involving large trucks are especially dangerous as these vehicles are much heavier than your average car.
Of course, these are just a few of the most common subcategories. Additionally, The Ward Law Group also has experience in handling:
- Multiple vehicle pileups
- Hit-and-run accidents
- Side-impact collisions
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-end collisions
- …and more.
Types of Rollover Accident Injuries & Compensation
Again, rollover accidents are among the most severe forms of car collisions out there. This means that the risk of injury is extremely high, especially for children and the elderly. Moreover, sustaining a personal injury will make everything worse as far as your claims process is concerned. You may be limited in terms of what activities you are normally able to perform, for example. Simultaneously, you’ll also be contending with a slew of medical expenses and psychological distress.
Here is a short list of personal injury types that rollover victims may sustain:
- Bruises and Lacerations
- Internal Bleeding
- Organ Damage
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Loss of a major bodily function
- Broken Bones
- Wrongful Death
- …and more.
When you suffer bodily harm as a direct result of third-party negligence, you’re going to need an experienced law firm behind you to maximize your settlement. With expert legal guidance, you may be able to recover the following damages:
- Medical Bills: This includes any expenses involving hospital stays, treatment plans such as occupational therapy, emergency surgery, prescription meds, and more.
- Property Damage: Obviously, this concerns the state of your vehicle after the accident. Additionally, however, this area also covers your clothes, electronic devices, jewelry, and more.
- Lost Wages & Earnings Capacity: If your injury prevents you from returning to work, you may be able to receive compensation for that lost time. Additionally, if your injury is lifelong and incapacitating, you may be able to receive compensation if it affects your ability to excel in your field.
- Psychological Distress: Though hard to determine, in some cases your lawyers may be able to secure you compensation for mental stress and emotional trauma.

This could ultimately hurt your settlement.

The insurance provider will tell you where you can obtain a copy of a claim form to fill out. This document will outline the most important details of the incident.
