Those who follow the local news and weather know that the Michigan State Police and other law enforcement authorities often respond to rollover car accidents. Many rollover accidents occur every year, from an older driver who lost control of his vehicle to a lane change that resulted in a driver’s death.

If you’ve sustained injuries in a rollover car accident, an auto accident attorney from Cochran, Kroll, & Associates, P.C. can help. Our years of experience with car accident claims can help you hold the at-fault parties responsible for your injuries.

Who Is At Fault in a Rollover Car Accident?

A rollover car crash is a type of traffic collision where the vehicle tips over onto its side or roof. These accidents can be caused by several factors, such as poor road conditions or mechanical defects. They can also be the result of driver error.

For instance, a common cause of rollover accidents is speeding. The vehicle may tip over when a driver travels quickly and loses control when making a turn. A distracted driver may also lose control of their car and hit a guard rail or another object, resulting in a rollover accident.

Another common cause of rollover accidents is intoxication. Alcohol and drugs can impair a driver’s judgment and reaction time, making them more likely at risk of causing an accident.

Compensation You Can Recover for a Rollover Car Accident

In Michigan, auto insurance companies are responsible for paying medical expenses and lost wages, regardless of fault in an auto accident. However, you may file a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver if you can prove that they were negligent and that their negligence caused your injuries.

To recover compensation from the other driver, you must show that you suffered severe bodily injury or death due to the accident. Michigan follows modified comparative negligence law. This law means that if you are found partially responsible for the accident, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

For example, if you are awarded $100,000 in damages but are found to be 20% at fault, you would only recover $80,000.

If you’ve been involved in a rollover crash, seek legal counsel to understand your options as soon as possible. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney from Cochran, Kroll, & Associates, P.C. can help you navigate the legal process and fight for the maximum compensation available under the law.
