Vehicle rollover accidents are especially likely to result in catastrophic injury or death. They can happen to anyone, at any time, and in any kind of car — though larger vehicles with a higher center of gravity carry greater risk.

Because these cases often involve substantial damage, it is especially important to immediately take certain critical steps. To take proper care of our clients and improve their chances of obtaining optimal compensation, we follow a swift and effective plan of action:
- Arrange for your vehicle to be safely stored (this allows us to preserve the vehicle’s value as evidence).
- Investigate the scene of the accident with the help of relevant experts.
- Analyze the police report.
- Interview eyewitnesses, police officers, any medical personnel, and all of the parties involved. (Conducting interviews early is extremely important because memories fade quickly and biases can creep in.)
- Hire qualified experts to inspect your vehicle and determine exactly how the crash happened.
- Communicate with the attorneys and insurance representatives involved in order to effectively advocate for your interests and rights.
Some rollovers are freak occurrences for which no fault can be assigned, but more often, negligence is to blame.
Some cars flip because of a defect in the vehicle itself or because of negligent maintenance work or repairs. Some may “trip” on hazards that commercial truckers or work crews left in the roadway. In other cases, a driver’s careless operation of his or her own car can cause a rollover that injures others.
If you’ve been involved in a rollover car crash, a Georgia auto accident attorney at Van Sant Law, can help. State law entitles you to compensation for your medical expenses, physical pain, emotional distress, time away from work, and other relevant damages.
In the event of wrongful death, close family members may also be able to recover for their losses.
