A rollover accident occurs when your car rolls over after a collision. The larger the vehicle that hits you, the more likely that your car will roll over. This type of accident often leads to horrific injuries and it's very important that you receive the maximum settlement possible from the company that insures the commercial truck.
What Happens During a Rollover Accident?
A rollover accident is one in which a car is turned over on its side or is upside down. This type of accident most often occurs with SUVs and certain types of pickup trucks. The head and neck are the areas of the body most likely to be injured in this type of accident. This can lead to a traumatic brain injury, a neck injury, a spinal cord injury, and lacerations to the face.
You might also suffer broken bones throughout the rest of your body and you might have many scrapes and bruises. Regardless of how injured you think you are, it's important to make sure that you take your injuries seriously and seek medical attention as soon as possible. If you do not seem medical attention, you might end up having a condition that is more serious than you realize and you might also cause the insurance provider to think that your injuries are not as severe as you claim.
Am I Guaranteed a Settlement?
When filing a claim against a commercial vehicle insurance provider, you will be going up against a highly motivated company that has the goal of paying the lowest settlement possible. To do this, they will often try to downplay your injuries especially if you do not seek medical attention immediately.
To maximize the chances that you will receive compensation for your rollover accident, you will need to prove that the truck driver was negligent, that you were injured, and that your injuries were caused by the accident.
How Can I Prove That the Truck Driver is At Fault?
To prove all of this, you will want to consult with a truck accident law attorney who can assist you in each aspect of your case. This includes the discovery process in which your lawyer will subpoena information from the insurance provider and use various other legal strategies.
Your commercial vehicle wreck attorney will work closely with eyewitnesses and expert witnesses to produce evidence that can be used to support your version of the events. Then, the attorney will work hard to negotiate a settlement with the insurance provider on your behalf.
