Causes of Rollover Accidents
Particularly at high speeds, any vehicle is susceptible to rollovers. However, it is more common for a narrow, tall car with a high center of gravity to be involved in this kind of accident, like SUVs. Rollovers can take many forms and can be caused by a multitude of factors, ranging from driver negligence to high speeds. Our team of legal professionals can conduct a thorough, comprehensive investigation into the cause of your accident to determine liability. Two types of rollover accidents include:
- Tripped Rollovers – When an obstruction causes force to the tires and the momentum causes the car to tip over. An obstruction can include soft soil, pavement inconsistencies, guardrails or debris.
- Un-Tripped Rollovers – Though less common, rollovers can also be un-tripped. These mostly occur at high speeds during attempts to avoid an obstruction, especially involving top-heavy vehicles.
Both tripped and un-tripped rollovers can be the result of another driver’s negligence. An inattentive or inebriated driver can run you off the road and into obstructions or force you to react with sudden maneuvers. If you were injured in a rollover accident caused by a reckless driver, you have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Additionally, Brasher Law Firm, PLLC, can help you stand up to automobile manufacturers who were negligent in building adequate and effective rollover protection.
If you purchased a vehicle that advertised measures of rollover safety, but you were not adequately protected in an accident, you have the right to take action against the parties involved in the car’s make, distribution, and sale. We are prepared to help you face automobile companies to hold them accountable for defects in their product design. Call now to schedule your free and confidential consultation.
How to Seek Compensation After a Rollover Accident
We handle all aspects of personal injury claims involving a lack of crashworthiness in a car lacking structural integrity. An upended motor vehicle with a crushed roof can lead to serious head and neck damage, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Our Beaumont injury lawyers take a proactive approach in the following:
- Identifying the responsible manufacturer, retailer, distributor or servicing agent
- Determining the hidden dangers in the vehicle and the negligent party’s actions to anticipate or prevent rollovers that could injure their consumers
- Assessing and maximizing a rollover claim’s value
- Resolving claims through negotiation or litigation
Manufacturers of tractors and law equipment that include zero-turn radius (ZTR) mowers often focus more on the bottom line. Cost-cutting measures can lead to a lower quality product. For a consumer, that lack of quality can have dangerous consequences when the supposedly safe vehicle causes injury or death.

I was scared to death after being on the witness stand for several hours. Clint Brasher kept reassuring me but, when we broke the trial for the day and I was offered $100,000.00, I wanted to take it. Clint advised me not to and that we would do better with the jury. While it was hard, I followed his advice. The verdict the next day was for $240,000.00 plus interest. I recommend anyone with a legal problem to call Clint Brasher. He was not only a skillful advocate, he was a friend to me during this difficult time.Edward Arabie
After being told by multiple lawyers that I really had no case or that my chances of being awarded any settlement was very slim, I was referred to the Brasher Law firm. Nishi worked on my case and with very little effort on my part, she put together my case with an opening statement and presentation that put my opponent on their heels. She set a goal from the start and didn’t relent until her goal was met and I got what was owed me. Thank you Nishi for knocking it out of the park!L. Smith
