Georgia Woman in Serious Condition Following Rollover Accident


August 22, 2015

It is widely known that SUVs tend to have a higher rollover risk than other standard passenger cars. Anyone driving an SUV likely knows this fact, and may take measures to drive more safely with the understanding that any accident has the potential to result in a rollover that could then lead to serious injuries or death. A Georgia woman was recently involved in a rollover accident when she veered off the road and flipped her Jeep Wrangler, according to WRDW. The woman was ejected from the vehicle and was not wearing a seatbelt.

What Causes a Rollover Accident?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speed plays a key role in many rollover accidents. Further, almost half of all fatal rollover accidents involve alcohol, which may also be related to how fast the driver is going, as a driver under the influence of alcohol is not necessarily aware of how fast he or she is driving. Additionally, 85% of rollover accidents involve just one vehicle. 

How a Georgia Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You

Regardless of whether an automobile accident involves one vehicle, or two or more vehicles, and regardless of whether the accident was a rollover accident, it takes the assistance of a skilled and knowledgeable attorney to help determine the true cause of an accident, as well as whether or not an injured person has the option of seeking a recovery. Single-car accidents can be more difficult to address than others.

As such, many questions go unanswered when injured individuals decide not to seek the guidance of an attorney.  Speaking with an attorney does not obligate an injured person to take certain measures, but is a good idea for getting those important questions answered. There is nothing to lose by at least hearing what an attorney has to say, as an attorney can help to protect your rights and interests if you have in fact been injured through no fault of your own.

Rollover accidents often involve SUVs, but not always. Some vehicles are more at risk for rollovers if an accident occurs, and this is something all drivers should be aware of. When a vehicle rolls over, it is not always easy to determine which driver is at fault for causing the accident. It takes the knowledge of a true advocate to evaluate a rollover accident as extensively as possible, determining whether or not an injured individual can seek a recovery for suffering significant injuries or death.
