Because of the nature of rollover accidents, severe and fatal injuries are more likely. If another motorist caused or influenced your accident, you may be able to hold them accountable. You shouldn’t have to pay the costs of your long-term medical treatment on your own, nor should you have to suffer the physical and personal consequences without appropriate compensation.
After your Houston car accident, allow Domingo Garcia to pursue a personal injury claim or lawsuit against the person or entity who is responsible for your accident. We will conduct a thorough investigation into your collision, build a strong case against them, and negotiate for an appropriate financial recovery.

While we can’t estimate what your case may be worth without a thorough case review, we will fight for a financial award that will improve your quality of life and restore your financial security.
How We Demonstrate the At-Fault Party’s Liability in Car Accident Cases
In all personal injury cases, before we can secure compensation, we must first prove that another person’s actions resulted in an otherwise avoidable accident.
All drivers, including the one responsible for your crash, owe a duty of care to operate their vehicle at least as safely as any reasonable person would. The failure of the responsible party to uphold this duty resulted in your rollover accident. This negligence can take the form of many common causes of car accidents, such as:
- Improper turns
- Running a red light
- Lane switches without warning
- Driving while intoxicated
- Texting while driving
- Aggressive driving
- Fatigued driving
Additional considerations include faulty tires or malfunctioning car parts. Part failures place fault on the manufacturer or mechanic responsible for your car’s upkeep instead.
We Will Gather Evidence to Support Your Case
We will gather witness statements, dashcam footage, forensic evidence, and any other useful sources of information to make a case against the at-fault party. We may also have access to evidence that would be difficult for you to collect on your own. If necessary, we can fight to secure black box data, surveillance footage, or other private information like cell phone records. Let us use our resources and experience to build your evidence file.
What Damages Can I Receive for My Rollover Accident?
You may be eligible to receive two types of damages for your accident: economic and non-economic damages.
Rollover accidents often cause catastrophic injuries like damage to the head, spinal cord, or appendages. In fact, research from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that the cost of treating injuries from rollover accidents accounts for a third of all car accident injury costs in the United States, despite rollover accidents making up only 2 percent of all collisions. Rollovers make for very expensive medical bills–all of the at-fault party should cover.
Economic damages also include the cost of car repairs and can even apply to out-of-pocket expenses like transportation to and from your job or doctor’s appointments after the accident.
If you lose income while you recover or are no longer able to work, we will also consider these current and future lost wages in our financial calculation of your damages.
These damages reflect the impact of the accident on your mental and emotional state and your personal life. Here are some examples of personal losses for which we can demand compensation:
- Physical Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment
- Diminished quality of life
- Emotional anguish
- Mental distress
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Knowing how the accident has impacted you at home is very influential in our estimates of the monetary value of your non-monetary losses. We strive to create an estimate that accurately reflects your suffering when we pursue non-economic damages. Then, we can pursue this amount from the person who caused it.
Wrongful Death Damages for the Loss of a Loved One
If you lost a loved one in a rollover accident, we hope to extend our heartfelt condolences for your loss. If you’re struggling as you deal with the effects of this loss, including financial instability, our wrongful death attorneys would like to pursue justice on your behalf. The surviving spouse, children, or parents are usually entitled to wrongful death damages from the individual who caused the accident, but our team can assess your eligibility during a free consultation.
Damages you may be eligible to receive include:
- Medical costs accrued before the loved one’s passing
- Funeral expenses
- Burial expenses
- Cremation expenses
- Loss of future income
- Loss of care, support, and advice
- Mental pain and anguish of surviving family members
No one should have to tally expenses related to the loss of a family member. At Domingo Garcia, we commit to taking on these burdens for you. We will assess your losses and fight to secure them in a settlement or court award.
How Long do Texas Residents Have to File a Personal Injury Case?
Texas law allows accident victims two years from the date of their accident to bring a case against the negligent party. To file a wrongful death case, the statute of limitations is two years after the loved one’s passing.
These laws can be difficult to interpret on your own, especially as exceptions can sometimes shorten this time limit. Allow our firm to handle these deadlines for you. We will track and manage them to protect your rights to compensation.
Common Injuries in Rollover Accidents
The Department of Transportation (DOT) conducted a study on the risk of injury in rollover accidents. Their research shows that passenger vehicle occupants in these types of collisions are at an elevated risk of head, chest, and spinal injuries. These injuries may include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries (SCI)
- Chest injuries
- Broken ribs
- Lung injuries
- Organ damage
Catastrophic injuries like these can be extremely costly, both financially and personally. Allow our attorneys to pursue the costs of these injuries from the negligent party or parties.
