Common Causes of Rollover Accidents in Las Vegas

Car, truck, and SUV rollover accidents occur when the force exerted on the vehicle is another to roll the vehicle on to its side or top. In some circumstances, the vehicle rolls over a full 360 degrees or multiple times.

In many accidents, there is a curb or object that collides with the tires and causes the vehicle to tip over. This is known as tripping. Taller barriers on roads can prevent rollovers from happening. This is why rollover accidents occur more frequently on rural roads, which are undivided and lack barriers on the sides or between lanes. Although, in serious crashes, vehicles and commercial trucks can rollover or through guardrails and other barriers.

The type of vehicle involved in the crash can influence whether a rollover accident occurs. Larger SUVs and commercial trucks are more likely to rollover due to a higher center of gravity. However, other factors are also involved in causing rollover accidents.

Common causes of rollover accidents include:

Who Is Responsible for a Rollover Accident?

When you are injured or a relative is killed in a rollover accident, a rollover accident lawyer at Oronoz & Ericsson Injury Lawyers will thoroughly investigate the crash. We will gather all of the evidence available, including the police report, photos, and eyewitness statements, to determine what went wrong and who is responsible. Depending on the complement of the crash, we also may hire an accident reconstruction expert.

The party liable for your injuries is the party who was negligent. Negligence is a failure to uphold the standard of care, which causes another person harm. Every individual is expected to behave as a reasonably prudent person would under the same or similar circumstances.

The negligent party may be a driver, pedestrian, construction worker, city planner, or engineer. A negligent motorist may crash into you, causing your vehicle to collide with a curb and tip over. A pedestrian or cyclist may come into your lane of traffic and force you to swerve. An engineer or planner may design a dangerous road, or a construction worker may not properly mark a work zone or hazard.

When we find another party’s negligence led directly to your rollover accident and injuries, then we can advise you on pursuing compensation through an insurance claim or lawsuit.

Comparative Negligence in Nevada

Many rollover accidents are single-vehicle crashes caused by the person behind the wheel. Because of this, the other at-fault party may try to blame you for the accident. When they claim you were also negligent, then Nevada’s modified comparative negligence rule.

Under the modified comparative negligence rule, the insurer, judge, or jury will determine if you were also negligent. The decision-maker will assign each party a percentage of fault.

If you are less than half responsible for the rollover crash, you can recover compensation, but it will be reduced by your percentage of fault. If you are 51% or more at fault, then you are barred from receiving compensation.

What to Do After a Rollover Accident

If you are involved in a rollover accident, our rollover accident lawyers recommend you:

  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible. What you do immediately following the crash depends on your circumstances. You may have been trapped in the vehicle or able to walk away.
  • Call 911. You or someone else at the scene should call the police to ensure a report is filed regarding the crash.
  • Get the other driver’s information. If you can do so safely, get the other driver’s name, contact information, and insurance information. This often isn’t possible after rollover accidents. If you do not have any of this information, do not worry. We will obtain a copy of the police report and learn who the other driver was.
  • Get witnesses’ information. If you are able to do so after a crash, ask for the witnesses’ names and contact information. Ask these questions if you are able to. Witnesses’ names also may be noted in the police report. If necessary, our team can seek out witnesses to the crash after the fact.
  • Write down everything you can remember. As soon as possible, write down or make a voice recording of what you can remember leading up to the accident. Note the date, time of day, weather, road conditions, traffic, and anything else you can remember. Record what you remember in the minutes leading up to the rollover accident and what you think happened.
  • Call a rollover accident attorney. As soon as you have been treated for your injuries and are stable, call Oronoz & Ericsson Injury Lawyers for help.
