Professional Rollover Accident Attorneys in Columbus, Ohio
Rollover accidents occur when one vehicle rolls over onto its side or roof, or when a car rolls over completely. These crashes pose the most risk to the occupants of the car rolling over. However, a vehicle rolling over can cross several lanes of traffic and because vehicles weigh many tons, anyone around the rolling vehicle is in danger of suffering serious injuries, as well.
Rollover accidents are usually caused by the negligence of another person and when that is the case, injured individuals can file a claim against them for financial compensation. If you have been hurt, our Columbus rollover accident lawyer can help you obtain the full settlement you deserve.
Common Causes of Rollover Accidents in Columbus
Most rollover crashes happen because a motorist loses control of their vehicle. When a vehicle has a higher center of gravity, such as a sports utility vehicle (SUV) or tractor-trailer, it is at a greater risk of rolling over. Aggressive and reckless driving, texting while driving, and speeding are just a few negligent actions that can cause a vehicle to roll over. Applying the brakes too quickly can also cause a driver to lose control of their car, resulting in a rollover accident.
While negligent drivers are most often to blame for a rollover accident, there are other causes, as well. When brakes are defective, they can also cause a rollover crash. In these instances, the manufacturer of the brakes or vehicle can be held liable for a rollover accident. Defective road conditions, such as large potholes, can also cause a rollover accident in which case, a government entity may be to blame for the crash.
Injuries Caused by Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents cause some of the most serious injuries, and they are typically entirely preventable. Fatalities are also very common after a rollover accident. Even when a person survives the crash, the injuries will impact them for some time to come, and perhaps for many years. The most common injuries caused by rollover accidents are as follows:
- Crushed and broken bones: Due to the weight of any vehicle, a rollover accident can easily cause bones to break or become crushed, as they cannot withstand the pressure and force of the crash.
- Traumatic brain injuries: Traumatic brain injuries are very common in rollover crashes because the chances of sustaining a blow to the head or a penetrating injury by a sharp object are very high.
- Spinal cord injuries: The spinal cord plays a very important role in many bodily functions, but it is extremely fragile. Herniated and ruptured discs, fractured vertebrae, and paralysis are all common injuries to the spine after a rollover accident.
- Burns: A rollover accident can cause gas tanks to become crushed and explode on the scene, resulting in serious burn injuries.
