Rollover Crash Lawyers
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, SUV rollover accidents constitute 31% of all road fatalities even though they only account for 3% of vehicle collisions. Rollovers are more likely to result in fatalities than other types of crashes due to the higher center of gravity, larger size, and poor roof engineering.

Here are some basics to remember if you end up in an accident.
Turn on your hazard lights
Check to see if anyone in your vehicle has sustained injuries. If so, call for help.
If it is safe to exit your vehicle, do so and then check to see that driver and passengers in the other vehicle(s) are unharmed. Again, contact emergency services if anyone is injured.
Avoid Conflict with the other driver or passengers. Accidents can make people overly emotional, if they become agitated, verbally or physically abusive, walk away.
Call the police to report the accident and have a report taken. Doing so will provide insurers, investigators and lawyers with the facts while they are still fresh.
Be sure to take photos and notes of the accident scene. Note exactly what happened, as you recall it, including the time date and weather conditions. Then exchange license, insurance and plate information of the car(s) involved.
Gather any witnesses, getting names, addresses and telephone numbers should further investigation prove necessary. Is your vehicle still mobile? If so, carefully move your vehicle out of traffic patterns and off to the nearest shoulder, curb or parking lot.
Don’t discuss the accident, from your perspective, with other drivers or witnesses. Never admit liability, as any comments or admissions made at the scene may be used against you later.
Stay at the scene of the accident until the police arrive and release you to go.
Call a qualified personal injury attorney, if you are injured or the damage to your vehicle is extensive, for a consultation. Don’t delay in seeking legal advice. Cases are stronger when an attorney is involved early. Call and speak with one now: 1-888-728-9866.

Rollover accidents only account for about three percent of total accidents, but they cause about one-fourth of fatalities. In fact, more than half of people killed in single-vehicle car accidents are from rollovers.
Here are the steps to take, should you find yourself in a rollover accident:
Ready Yourself for the Rollover
If your vehicle begins to tip and you suspect it is about to roll over, immediately remove your feet from the pedals to prevent ankle breakage. Release the steering wheel, crossing your arms against your chest as you press your body deep into the seat. Make sure not to lean forward when the car rolls, as this can increase the occurrence of arm breaks and traumatic brain injury.
Remain Calm & Check for Injury
When the car has stopped rolling, brace your feet against the floor to stabilize your body in stillness and assess the damage to yourself and your passengers. Everyone should run their hands across their head/hair checking for broken glass, blood or severe injury that may not be immediately noticed in the event of traumatic incident. Take a few deep breaths to recalibrate your nervous system. If anyone is injured, do not move them. Call 911 immediately.
Turning Off the Engine
If your vehicle has landed upside-down, turn off your engine immediately and begin to plan your exit strategy.
Exiting the Vehicle
If you land upside-down and you appear to be uninjured, reach toward your ceiling, bracing yourself with one hand while stabilizing your feet on the floor of the vehicle, and then undo your seat belt. Be extremely careful, as this is where the majority of post-rollover injuries occur. Check your windows to determine the safest exit and crawl towards it. If the integrity of the car has been sustained, the door may open freely. If not, you’ll need to either roll down or break a window to create an escape route, being careful to clear away any glass shards or debris before exiting. Once you’re free of the car, assist any passengers with their exit and then move as quickly as possible away from the vehicle, in case of a possible fuel leak, which could cause an explosion.
Stay Clear of Traffic
People have survived rollovers only to be hit by oncoming traffic moments later. Stay off the road and on the shoulder, as far from traffic as possible. If you have not already done so, call 911, waiting there until help arrives.
Rollover accidents are serious and commonly result in head trauma and spinal cord injuries. If you’ve been involved in a rollover accident, call the attorneys at Meshbesher and Spence for a free consultation.
