Miami Rollover Accident Lawyer
Rollover accidents, by their very nature, tend to result in costly vehicle repairs, extensive property damage, and high medical care costs. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the total cost of vehicle accidents in the United States was over $44 billion in 2013, of which Florida accounted for roughly 7%, or $3 billion, of the total.
Despite numerous CDC programs targeted at fixing the problems of impaired driving, distracted driving, and underage driving, accidents of every type, including rollover accidents still occur every day across the state.
A rollover accident can be a life-altering experience. In addition to personal injuries and property or vehicle damage, rollovers are known to cause death and permanent injury. There are few things as difficult as overcoming the tragedy of the loss of a loved one, especially if it is due to the negligence of a third-party road user. Burial and funeral costs, lost earnings that a deceased loved one used to generate, and prohibitively expensive medical costs can fling a family from relative comfort to the edge of bankruptcy.

Common Causes of Rollover Accidents
The most common causes of rollover accidents are actually all preventable. This is why legal representation in such cases is important: because they are often preventable, rollovers that are caused by negligence and could have been avoided deserve that much more follow-up as compared to an accident that was caused by chance.
The leading causes of rollovers include:
- Distracted driving (almost 10% of all accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration)
- Driver inexperience
- Driving under hazardous conditions
- Poorly maintained roads
- Unexpected changes in road conditions, traffic patterns, or vehicle performance
An important part of any accident claim is proving the negligence of the at-fault party and providing supporting evidence for the damages you are claiming. You may need to prove, for example, that a local government body or contractor failed to put up proper signage in a work zone, resulting in a rollover accident, or you may need to show that the reckless driving of another road user caused your accident.
Whatever specifics your case may entail, we will handle everything for you from start to finish, and you pay nothing until we win the case for you.
Why You Should Seek Legal Counsel
Unless you are a legal expert yourself, you will likely overlook or be unable to identify many of the factors relevant to your case and the different at-fault parties that could be held responsible for your damages. You may also find it difficult to meet the deadline and evidence requirements that are part of every rollover accident claim.
Allowing an experienced attorney to handle your case will help you in the following ways:
- You will be able to focus on getting better instead of running around collecting evidence, filing documents, and holding insurance negotiations.
- You can rest assured that all damages that you are legally allowed to claim are included in your settlement demand.
- You can avoid the pitfalls that come with self-representation, such as unknowingly accepting an unfairly low settlement offer, intimidation, and bullying by insurance agents, or signing documents that you shouldn’t sign that will harm your case.
These are important services that we will provide you with, and they are that much more important when you find yourself trying to recover from personal injuries, spinal cord damage, broken bones, an inability to work or travel, or facing the stress and anxiety that are common amongst accident victims after-the-fact.
