Rollover Car Accidents in Fort Myers

Car flipped over with ambulance at the scene

Have you been injured in a rollover accident in Fort Myers? Rollover accidents occur when one vehicle flips over onto the roof or onto its side. These types of accidents most commonly involve a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), a van or a truck. Unfortunately, there is a high death rate with rollover accidents. In fact, rollover accidents have the second highest death rate out of all motor vehicle crashes, right behind head-on collisions.

If you or someone you love has been killed or seriously injured in a rollover accident, be sure to speak with one of our skilled car accident lawyers right away. We have extensive trial experience and we will work tirelessly to secure the injury settlement that you deserve.

Common Causes for Rollover Accidents

A rollover accident can occur for a number of different reasons, some being at the fault of the driver while others stem from the manufacturing of the vehicle itself. Here at Pittman Law Firm, P.L. we have dealt with countless car accident cases, including rollover accidents, and we've found that the top leading causes for rollovers include:

  • Taller vehicles that are top heavy with a high center of gravity
  • A sudden jerk of the steering wheel at high speeds
  • Multi-car pile ups (especially T-Bone accidents)
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Poor weather conditions making for slippery streets

Rollover Accidents Can Result in Serious Injury

When rollover accidents do not end in fatality, there are often catastrophic injuries that are sustained. Even when drivers and passengers are wearing their seatbelts, they can still experience blunt force from several surfaces in the vehicle. People that are not wearing their seat belt are at serious risk of being ejected from the vehicle.

Since cars flip over in these types of car accidents and sometimes land on the roof, there is an increased risk of obtaining a traumatic brain injury. Other common injuries that result from rollovers include broken bones, spinal cord injuries and internal bleeding.
