Rollover Accidents

South Florida Serious Accident Attorneys Advocating for Accident Victims Injured by Negligent Drivers

Rollover Crashes The impact of a rollover accident can be catastrophic, often resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. A rollover occurs when a vehicle flips onto its side or roof, typically caused by a sharp turn at high speed or a collision with another vehicle or object. These accidents are particularly violent, as the vehicle's occupants can be subjected to intense forces and multiple impacts—and severe injuries are common.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a rollover accident, it's vital to seek experienced legal counsel immediately. With over 45 years of experience, the injury lawyers at Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada have a proven track record of standing by the side of accident victims across South Florida, dedicated to helping them recover monetary compensation for their injuries and losses. We understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll these accidents can take, and we are here to support you every step of the way. Don't face this challenging time alone; contact us today and let us help you fight for the justice and compensation you deserve.

Types and Causes of Florida Rollover Crashes

Rollover crashes represent a particularly dangerous type of vehicle accident, characterized by their violent nature and high fatality rate. In a rollover, a vehicle tips over onto its side or roof, often multiple times. These incidents are highly destructive, especially when occupants are unrestrained, exposing them to severe forces and impacts that can lead to catastrophic injuries or even death. Statistically, rollovers are more likely to result in fatalities than non-rollover crashes.

At Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, we recognize the seriousness of these accidents and the profound permanent effects they have on victims and their families. Understanding the causes of rollover crashes is essential for prevention and seeking justice for those affected. Below is a list of the major causes of rollover crashes:

  • Excessive Speed: Speeding is one of the leading factors in rollover accidents. High speeds make it difficult to navigate turns safely and increase the vehicle's tendency to tip over when a driver attempts a sudden maneuver.
  • Type of Vehicle: Taller, narrower vehicles like SUVs, pickup trucks, and vans have higher centers of gravity and are more susceptible to rolling over than lower-profile cars.
  • Driver Error: Sharp turns at high speeds or incorrect maneuvers to avoid obstacles can cause a vehicle to lose its balance and roll over.
  • Road Conditions: Slippery roads, uneven surfaces, or unexpected objects on the road can all lead to a driver losing control and subsequently rolling the vehicle.
  • Impaired Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs significantly impairs a driver's reaction time and decision-making skills, raising the risk of a rollover.
  • Load Distribution: Improperly loaded or overloaded vehicles, particularly those carrying heavy cargo on the roof, can alter the vehicle's center of gravity and increase the likelihood of a rollover during turns or evasive actions.

At Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, we use our extensive knowledge and experience to help victims of rollover crashes navigate the complex aftermath. If you or a loved one has been involved in a rollover accident, we are here to provide the legal support you need. We will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve and hold responsible parties accountable for your losses.

Injuries After a Miami Rollover Crash

Rollover crashes are among the most severe road accidents, often resulting in significant injuries or fatalities. Common injuries from rollover crashes include traumatic brain injuries, which occur from the violent shaking and impact on the vehicle's interior. Spinal cord injuries are also frequent, potentially resulting in paralysis or long-term disability.

Many victims sustain broken bones and internal injuries due to the force exerted during the roll. Lacerations and contusions are common, often caused by shattered glass and sheared metal. In the worst cases, rollover crashes can be fatal, mainly if occupants are ejected from the vehicle, which drastically increases the likelihood of death.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
