Injured in a Rollover Accident in Georgia?

Our Savannah Car Accident Attorney Can Help You

A rollover accident is a type of auto accident that results in high fatality rates due to the movement of the vehicle and devastating impact on those involved. Rollovers often occur with sport utility vehicles (SUVs), but can also happen to cars and trucks.

If you have been injured in a rollover accident in Georgia, our Savannah car accident attorney at Brooks Law Office can hold the negligent party accountable. We have a thorough understanding of state law to guide you through the intricacies of the legal system and help you make a full recovery--physically and financially--from your injuries.

Why Rollovers Happens

Although some rollover accidents are caused by driver negligence, including overly aggressive driving, others are the result of vehicle defects and poor road conditions. These are all considered “tripping” mechanisms, each causing a vehicle to roll over.

The following are the most common causes of rollover accidents:

  • High center of gravity - Some vehicles, such as SUVs, have a higher center of gravity compared to ordinary cars. When a driver is forced to make a sharp turn, the SUV may trip, leading to a rollover.
  • Tire failure - Defective or worn-out tires can fail, causing a vehicle to lose control and rollover.
  • Suspension failure - A vehicle’s suspension system keeps the vehicle stable and steady. If the suspension gives out, the vehicle can lose control and flip or rollover.
  • Poor road conditions - From poor signage to neglected maintenance, these are all considered “tripping” mechanisms that can cause rollover accidents. The government is responsible for maintaining safe roadways and may be liable for car accidents under certain circumstances.
  • Driving aggressively - When a motorist is driving at high speeds and then makes a sudden lane change, they can easily lose control of their vehicle and rollover.
  • Over-correction - If a driver realizes that they are drifting into another lane, they may jerk the wheel to attempt to get back to where they must be. In doing so, however, this action can result in a loss of control, causing the vehicle to flip or rollover.
