COVID-19 Update: How We Are Serving and Protecting Our Clients

SUV Rollover Accidents

Cape Cod Auto Accident Attorneys

The Plymouth car accident lawyers at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III represent clients who have been injured in SUV rollovers and other types of car accidents. We are professional, experienced, and accomplished attorneys who have dedicated our legal practice to helping clients recover from their injuries, whether they've been caused by a rollover accident, a slip and fall in a grocery store aisle, or a mishap on the job. We understand the stress that can be caused by medical bills piling up, the pain and suffering that accompany serious injuries, and the financial blow that a car crash can deal by keeping you from being able to work.

SUVs Accidents Can Be Deadlier Than Other Accidents

While the threat of rollover accidents has declined in recent years thanks to manufacturing advances, these types of crashes still occur and can cause severe personal and property damage when they do. Rollovers account for only about 3 percent of all car accidents nationwide each year, but they are responsible for 30 percent of the people killed in passenger car crashes. Taller, more narrow SUVs and vans are commonly involved in these accidents because they're more top heavy than other cars with lower centers of gravity. Some of these vehicles may be prone to roll over while taking a curve, stopping abruptly, or swerving to avoid a hazard on the road.

Suing for Injuries From A Rollover Accident

If you've been injured in a rollover accident, you have the right to take legal action to ensure that those responsible for the crash are held liable. That may include other drivers whose unsafe behavior on the road caused you to swerve or stop short. It may also include third parties like defective tire makers or a car manufacturer whose design makes a certain vehicle unreasonably prone to roll over.

Rollover accident cases often proceed under the legal theory of negligence, which generally requires the person suing (plaintiff) to show that he or she was injured because the party being sued (defendant) breached some sort of duty owed to the plaintiff. For example, someone operating their SUV in an unsafe manner may be violating his or her legal duty to others on the road to drive safely, and can potentially be held liable for any resulting injuries. In addition, if a car maker fails to design or build its vehicles so that they are reasonably safe, a person injured due to a flawed design or manufacturing process can possibly sue the car maker in a products liability action.

At the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III, our attorneys are well respected for their commitment to clients, and for providing personalized, comprehensive legal services. With decades of courtroom experience, we have an intimate understanding of how to build a case by not only establishing that the responsible party was at fault and caused the crash, but also demonstrating the full extent of the injuries caused. Further, we are aggressive negotiators who make every effort to avoid the time and cost of litigation by pursuing settlement. We've previously obtained settlements of up to $1.56 million for clients injured in car accidents.
