Recovering From a Rollover Accident in Texas

 Posted on April 12, 2024 in Car Accidents

TX injury lawyerRollover accident is the term used to describe what happens when a car turns on its side or flips onto the roof, whether the car rolls over once or multiple times. There are a wide variety of factors that can cause this type of car crash, but however they are caused, they can result in a great deal of bodily harm as well as material damage. In some cases, you might be entitled to compensation to cover your accident-related expenses, but it can be overwhelming attempting to convince insurance companies that your claim is valid while you are also taking care of yourself and dealing with car repairs. An experienced El Paso, TX personal injury lawyer can fight aggressively on your behalf so you can focus on your recovery.

What Causes Rollover Accidents?

While rollover accidents can be caused by many different things - some connected to the driver and some to the car - the following is a list of some of the most common causes:

  • Speeding: Speeding limits are in place to ensure safe roads for everyone using them. When someone drives faster than is considered safe, it lowers their ability to control the car or respond to various obstacles on the road. When a speeding car collides with something, the impact is more intense and can make it rollover. Speeding drivers generally need to swerve to avoid hitting something ahead because they noticed it when they were already too close to slow down, and the combination of swerving and speeding can also cause a rollover accident. 
  • Car design: Generally speaking, taller vehicles like pickup trucks, jeeps, and SUVs have a higher center of gravity, making them more prone to rollover accidents.
  • Tire issues: Defective tires have a much higher chance of blowing out. Improperly installed tires can be less secure than necessary and become dismantled while the car is being driven. In either case, if a tire stops functioning as it should, it can be detrimental to the car, its passengers, and other cards nearby and can certainly cause a rollover accident. The two scenarios listed above would incriminate different parties as responsible for the accident, and a knowledgeable lawyer can review what happened and advise you on which directions to pursue.
