Rollover accidents happen for a number of reasons. The cause of a crash may be defective tires, design flaws involving the center of gravity, or driver error. Another motorist may be responsible if his or her action — such as an illegal lane change — causes someone else's vehicle to roll over.
Were the Rollover Accident and Injuries a Result of Defective Vehicle Parts, Driver Negligence or Both?
Sometimes the cause of injury in a rollover accident is not only the crash itself, but also car parts that do not do the job they were designed to do. Injuries to occupants in a car in a rollover accident may be made much worse when roof crush occurs. Roof crush is often preventable when cars are designed properly. Defective seatbelts may also result in serious or catastrophic injuries in a rollover accident.
Driver inattention, fatigue and inexperience are also chief causes of rollover accidents involving private motorists as well as commercial truck drivers. The Jasmer Law Firm has led the way in demonstrating that negligent hiring and retention had occurred when truck companies put unqualified drivers behind the wheel, resulting in serious personal injuries to our clients caused by excessive cornering speed and other driver errors. We have been at the cutting edge in showing the effect of cell phone usage and on-board computers in distracting drivers' attention, resulting in crashes. Our analytical acumen and thorough investigation of the facts of each case have led to many outstanding results.
