Rollover Accident West of Goleta

I’m Ed Smith, a Goleta car accident lawyer.  Though it is not every day that you hear about rollover accidents, these collisions do happen and tend to involve more than one victim. Sadly, when rollovers happen most individuals involved tend to suffer moderate to serious injuries or even death.

However, if the cause of the accident is unclear, typically a further investigation as to the cause will follow. This was the case, February 13, 2017, on Highway 101 near Dos Pueblos Canyon just west of Goleta, when a motorist was severely injured in a rollover accident.
