The Severity of Rollover Accidents
A rollover accident is when the motor vehicle completely flips over in the midst of hitting an object or getting hit by another vehicle. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in the latest year of reporting, you are ten times more likely to die in a rollover accident than in any other kind of motor vehicle accident. This even includes head-on collisions, which are also known to be very serious and deadly.
Along with the great potential for fatality, physical injuries are high among victims of rollover accidents. The list of these severe injuries includes:
- Bone Fractures
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Soft Tissue Injuries
- Nerve Damage
- Traumatic Brain Damage
This is not a comprehensive list of all the physical injuries you could face being involved in a rollover accident. There are countless other injuries you could sustain from flipping over in a car during a crash. Suffering from any one of these injuries means that you are entitled to compensation.
An Augusta rollover accident attorney from John Foy & Associates can help you and your family obtain that compensation.

Causes of Rollover Accidents
The most common cause of a rollover accident comes from the negligent actions of another driver on the road. This will most often occur in three different ways:
- Another vehicle t-bones your car (hit your side with their front).
- Another vehicle side-swipes your car and pushes you off the road.
- Another vehicle cuts you off in your lane, either pushing you off the road or forcing you to swerve too suddenly and aggressively.
When rollover accidents happen because of these types of reckless actions, then it gives the victims the go-ahead to sue them in court for damages. There can be other causes of a rollover, like an issue with the car’s manufacturer. This is usually highly unlikely, though.
Sit down and chat with a rollover accident lawyer in Augusta if you know that your motor vehicle accident took place due to any of these three commonplace causes. From there, our experienced team of legal professionals can get a better understanding of your case and whether or not you have a legal standing for compensation going forward.
Steps to Take After the Crash
Moments after any type of motor vehicle accident can be quite confusing and stressful. This is particularly true for rollover accidents because of how dangerous they are and because you are literally spinning through the air at very fast speeds. The most important step to take following a rollover accident is to be examined by emergency services and medical professionals, regardless of how normal you may or may not feel.
Then you are going to want to talk with the police about the official report of the crash. Make it very well known that you did not cause the accident. You are a victim of a negligent driver’s actions.
Next, contact your auto insurance to see how much money you will get from damages is your next move. This goes along with contacting your health insurance to see how much they are willing to cover all your medical bills.
Once all those steps are taken, then you can get in touch with a rollover accident attorney in Augusta. “The Strong Arm” can help you and your loved ones through these tough times by doing a multitude of different things. This includes:
- Negotiating with insurance companies to make sure they do not downplay your damages
