Helping Protect the Rights of the Victims of Rollover Accidents

Rollover accidents can cause serious injuries, damages, and even death.

Rollover Accidents Caused by Motorist Negligence

Rollover accidents are commonly caused by motorist negligence, such as:

When another motorist sets in motion a chain reaction that causes a rollover accident, he or she can be held liable for any resulting injuries, damages, or deaths in a personal injury lawsuit.

For more than 30 years, the Las Vegas car accident lawyers at Robert M.

Rollover Accidents Caused by Vehicle Defects

In some cases, a rollover accident is caused or exacerbated by a vehicle defect. For instance, a negligent motorist may cause the rollover accident, but a product defect may result in a roof collapse. In these situations, a rollover accident victim may also have a product liability claim against the vehicle manufacturer.

Vehicle manufacturers are subject to a standard of strict liability, which means that they can be held liable for accidents and injuries caused by a dangerous or defective vehicle, regardless of whether they knew or should have known that the product was unsafe. In order for a plaintiff to recover under the theory of strict liability, he or she must prove that an unreasonably dangerous condition or defect existed in the vehicle at the time the vehicle left the auto maker’s control.
