Rollover Accident Lawyer Phoenix, AZ
Were You Injured in a Rollover Accident? Let Us Help.
Rollover accidents can result in catastrophic injuries to the head, neck, back and other areas of the body. Top-heavy vehicles like SUVs, pickup trucks, passenger vans and minivans are more likely to tip over than other automobiles. However, a rollover accident can happen with any type of vehicle, depending on the nature of the accident, impact and other factors.

Causes of Motor Vehicle Crashes
For three straight years from 2016 to 2018, the U.S. had 40,000 roadway deaths per year.
The National Safety Council found that no state effectively captures the data needed by government and traffic safety organizations to fully understand the causes of accidents. In order to determine what information police are tracking in regard to motor vehicle accidents, the National Safety Council examined police reports from 50 states and Washington, D.C.
No state reports on the level of driver fatigue at the time of the crash, 26 states fail to report whether the driver was texting, 32 states fail to report hands-free cell phone usage, and 32 states fail to identify specific drug types on positive drug tests.
50 states fail to report the use of advanced driver assistance technologies, 35 states do not report teen driver restrictions.
Arizona, California, Colorado, Maine, New York, and Virginia do not provide fields in their reports for police to capture alcohol impairment at levels below the legal impairment level, despite fatal crashes involving drivers at low blood alcohol content levels. Only Alaska, California, Oregon, and Washington include fields in their police reports to record positive marijuana intoxication.
The more governmental and traffic safety organizations know about what causes crashes, more steps can be taken to reduce crashes and save lives. A personal injury attorney can investigate the causes of a crash, and evaluate claims for injuries and damages.
Pursuing Maximum Compensation for Your Injuries
If you have been injured in an SUV accident, you may have a claim against the vehicle manufacturer. These types of vehicles are more likely than others to roll over. If you have been injured in a semi rollover accident, you may have a claim against the trucking company if driver error or another factor caused or contributed to your accident. Our law firm can investigate the cause of your rollover accident and pursue a claim against the responsible party. You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Hospital visits
- Lost time from work
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering, and disability
- Permanent injury
