Were You Involved in a Rollover Accident in East Tennessee?
A rollover accident occurs when a vehicle involved in a wreck flips or overturns. Despite efforts to reduce this type of accident and injuries, rollovers remain common and are among the most dangerous type of vehicle accidents. More than 8,000 rollover accidents occurred in Tennessee in 2008, according to the Tennessee Department of Safety. In these incidents, 330 people lost their lives.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a rollover accident, you likely face difficult questions about medical bills, loss of income, and other expenses such as vehicle repair. If a distracted driver or a defective car part caused your injuries, you may be eligible for financial compensation to cover those expenses. That is why it is important to have our dedicated Morristown personal injury attorneys at The Terry Law Firm on your side. Our legal team can identify the parties responsible for your injuries and help you hold them accountable.
Common Causes of Rollover Accident Injuries
Many rollover accidents, and especially those involving only a single vehicle, are often the result of a faulty or damaged product installed in the vehicle. Examples of this include tire failures and defects or a poorly designed suspension system.
The resulting fatalities and injuries may stem from these factors:
- Weak roof supports that allow the top to crush or pin SUV occupants
- Faulty or ill-fitting seatbelts or restraints
- Poorly designed passenger seats or headrests
- Airbags that cause severe injuries when they deploy
