File an Effective Claim & Maximize Your Damages
According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rollover accidents accounted for almost 35% of all fatal traffic collisions in 2010. Sadly, even victims who survive these accidents tend to sustain severe and even permanent injuries. After all, not even a seatbelt can protect a person from being forcefully crushed or fatally ejected from a rolling vehicle.
There are two negligent parties that are typically responsible for rollover accidents: at-fault drivers and vehicle manufacturers. When a driver’s negligence is responsible for a rollover accident, the surviving victims have a legal right to file personal injury claims against the liable party. In a worst-case scenario, the deceased victim’s family or estate can sue the negligent driver by filing a wrongful death claim.
However, there have also been cases where a rollover accident occurs because there is an inherent defect in the vehicle. According to The U.S. Code for Motor Vehicle Safety, a defect includes “any defect in performance, construction, a component, or material of a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment.” Our legal team can thoroughly investigate the accident as well as the manufacturer’s history to help you secure damages in a defective product lawsuit. Fortunately, Attorney Citrin has a comprehensive understanding of Alabama’s product liability laws. Under our guidance, you can hold the negligent manufacturer responsible for both your injuries and your financial losses.
You can recover the following damages by filing a personal injury, wrongful death, or product liability claim:
- Existing and projected medical expenses
- Ongoing rehabilitation costs
- Disability costs
- Lost or reduced wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of consortium
