What Causes an SUV Rollover?
Since the early 1990s, the popularity of sport utility vehicles has only been matched by the likelihood of an accident in one. Having worked with victims of SUV rollovers, we’ve witnessed first-hand the damage that reckless driving can inflict in these cars. Because of their narrow wheel-base, high center of gravity and often robust engine, these uniquely designed machines can quickly become a hazard even under the best conditions. Despite a dramatic increase in government regulation, SUV drivers are still three times as likely to be involved in a rollover.
While manufacturing defects and substandard road maintenance cannot be ruled out, it is often a driver’s reckless or inexperienced decision making that leads to injury; examples of this include aggressive driving, distracted behavior and a lack of respect for the vehicle’s limitations. Under Massachusetts state law, excluding any aggravating external factors, the driver of the vehicle who caused the wreck is considered liable.
What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect?
Because SUVs have a greater chance of rolling over, there are increased odds of severe injury to the spine, neck and head. As a result, medical expenses and the cost of long term care can dramatically increase. Compounded by the loss of viable income, potential funeral expenses and overall emotional anguish, it is easy to see how costly an SUV rollover can become.
In the state of Massachusetts, if you or a loved one have been injured in an SUV rollover accident, you may be entitled to significant compensation from the liable party. The following are examples of common economic and non-economic expenses that may apply in a rollover accident claim:
- Extensive surgeries
- Long term hospital care
- Funeral expenses
- Physical and mental rehabilitation
- Prescription medicines
- Crisis Counseling
- Loss of Employment
- Loss of Partner
- Permanent Disability
- Pain and Suffering
