Such injuries may include traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, broken bones, damage to internal organs, and even mental trauma.

How Our Dallas Rollover Accident Lawyers Would Prove Negligence in a Crash Case

Most car accidents, including rollovers, involve the negligence of one or more parties. Usually, financial responsibility for the accident falls on the motorist that caused the collision. 

To demonstrate that another party is liable, and therefore owes you compensation, we can establish the following elements of negligence: 

  • Duty of care: Motorists owe all other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians a duty to avoid actions that could cause them harm. Driving is a privilege, not a right, and getting behind the wheel means agreeing to abide by the law and drive with reasonable care.
  • Breach of duty: A breach of duty is the failure to fulfill one’s responsibility to drive cautiously and with regard to the safety of others. A person breaches their duty of care when they cause a rollover accident due to carelessness. 
  • Causation: Proving causation requires demonstrating that the liable driver’s negligence was the direct cause of the accident and the damages you suffered. 
  • Damages: Because of the at-fault driver’s negligence, you suffered damages such as lost income, property damage, medical bills, and pain and suffering. 

What Causes Rollover Accidents in Dallas, TX?

Although trucks, vans, and SUVs are more vulnerable to rollovers, any vehicle can overturn under the right circumstances. However, vehicles with a higher center of gravity are less stable and harder to maneuver. Unfortunately, they also tend to be larger and heavier than other vehicles, making them capable of causing serious damage.

Like most accidents, rollover accidents are typically caused by driver error. Actions that commonly cause these accidents include:

  • Aggressive driving: Rollover accidents are often the result of excessive speeding, turning too sharply, and unpredictable lane changes. Any of these actions could cause a vehicle to lose control and overturn. 
  • Failure to yield or stop: If the at-fault vehicle strikes your car, the force of the crash may cause a rollover accident. 
  • Distracted driving: Many accidents result from preoccupied drivers texting or talking on a cell phone and not paying attention to road traffic conditions. As a result, these motorists are much more likely to cause all types of accidents, such as by drifting out of their lanes or failing to identify an impending traffic hazard.
  • Driving under the influence: Motorists intoxicated by alcohol or drugs can experience delayed reaction times and impaired visual acuity and hand-eye coordination. When driving aggressively or impulsively, as many drunk drivers do, they are at a higher risk of causing rollovers or other accidents that can be catastrophic and result in a loss of life.
  • Fatigued drivers: Fatigued drivers can be as dangerous as intoxicated drivers and suffer many of the same impairments. A motorist who is nodding off and drifts out of their lane or overcorrects trying to recover can rapidly lose control and roll over. 

On occasion, rollover accidents occur due to a vehicle malfunction, such as when brakes, steering, or other vital components suddenly fail. In these situations, we can hold the manufacturer that designed, made, or sold the defective product responsible for your damages.
