Common causes of vehicle rollover accidents include:

If you’ve been injured in a rollover accident, call an experienced, knowledgeable car accident lawyer to make sure your insurance company provides fair compensation.
Rollover accidents don’t just damage vehicles. Rollover accidents can result in a variety of often severe injuries to the vehicle occupants such as:
- spinal cord injuries
- brain injuries
- orthopedic injuries.
If you’ve been injured in a rollover accident, contact a qualified personal injury lawyer to make sure you receive the maximum fair compensation from the insurance company.
When a vehicle collision or rollover happens in “black ice” conditions, the insurer often argues that the driver was not negligent due to the “black ice” conditions. If successfully argued, this “inevitable accident” defence means the injured person is not entitled to any compensation. This defence is difficult to maintain. Call (780) 760-4878 (HURT) or contact me, Joseph A. Nagy, to discuss the steps I can recommend so that you obtain the compensation you deserve.
The standard auto policy (S.P.F.No.1) provides exclusions for coverage when a vehicle is involved in a “race or speed test.” But driving too fast for road conditions does not automatically mean that you are in a “race or speed test.” You should consult with a qualified injury lawyer. Call (780) 760-4878 (HURT) or contact me, Joseph A. Nagy, to discuss the steps I can recommend so that you obtain the compensation you deserve.
