Rollover Accidents

San Antonio Lawyers for Rollover Accident Injuries

Rollover accidents have a fatality rate higher than any other motor vehicle accident type. This is primarily because of the force and severity of the roll. It is also because many vehicles are poorly designed, and occupants fall victim to roof crush injuries.

At the Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we are well equipped to represent people who have suffered these serious injuries. Our attorneys have more than 130 years of combined experience, and are AV* rated under Martindale-Hubbell's peer rating system. Four of our six attorneys are Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Causes of Rollover Accidents

Rollover accidents occur for many reasons, including the ones listed below:

  • Vehicle type is one of the most common reasons for rollover accidents. Tall and narrow vehicles with higher centers of gravity — such as SUVs (sport utility vehicles), vans, buses and trucks — are more prone to rolling when they are involved in a wreck.
  • Speed also is a factor in rollover accidents. Most fatal rollover accidents occur on highways with a speed limit of 55 mph or greater. Rollovers are more likely to occur when vehicles are traveling at these high speeds because the momentum in a crash is strong enough to flip the vehicle over.

Our Goals for You: Favorable Outcomes and Good Health

As your attorneys, we will wait to resolve your claim, either through settlement or trial, until we have evidence from your treating physician that have made the fullest possible recovery. Doctors often treat their patients by telling them to come back for a second visit (or a third) if they still are not feeling well. Lawyers do not have that luxury. You can not come back to settle your case a second or third time.

You get one chance to get all of the compensation you need. And you must act quickly. A two-year statute of limitations prevents you from taking action after two years have passed, with a few, limited exceptions. Case preparation should begin much sooner. Call an attorney as soon as possible after you or someone you care about has been involved in a rollover accident.
