Vehicles are not supposed to rollover. When they do, they can cause the occupants serious personal injuries such as crushed or shattered bones, traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries, organ damage, and loss of limb. Rollovers can be the result of poor vehicle design or a roadway defect, mechanical failure, or a negligent driver. After suffering an injury in a Redwood City rollover accident, contact the attorneys at Danko Meredith Trial Lawyers.

A vehicle may rollover due to forces that are external or internal to the vehicle. Although each car accident case is unique, certain factors cause rollover accidents more often than others:
Roadway hazards, unsafe vehicle designs, and a car “tripping” on an obstacle cause most rollover accidents. The person responsible for your damages could be a motor vehicle manufacturer, roadway maintenance crew, or a third-party driver. Our law firm can investigate your rollover to help you get answers.
California personal injury law could make you eligible to recover expenses such as hospital bills, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering associated with your injury. But to obtain an award for the injuries you suffered in a rollover accident, you will need to file the right type of claim. Most car accident cases start with insurance claims. If the claim cannot be resolved informally, the next step is a lawsuit. In California the statute of limitations to file a lawsuit can be as short as 6 months after an accident.
