Details on the Rollover Accident Resulting in Injuries Reported in Sonora
A press release by officials revealed that two parties were involved in a single-vehicle accident, an adult and a juvenile passenger. CHP traffic officers responding to the scene located a vehicle on its wheels. Major injuries were reported following the incident. However, information on which party was seriously injured in the car wreck and the sequence of events leading up to it was not immediately available.
What to Expect from a Personal Injury Claim for a Rollover Accident
The injuries and damages that may follow a motor vehicle collision, such as a rollover accident, may result in significant hardship in your life. Seeking financial compensation for resulting damages may present its own unique set of challenges as it may mean dealing with insurance companies or defense counsel. The unfortunate reality is that neither of these parties will have your best interests. The same situation may also play out in first-party insurance claims as the insurer is focused on protecting their bottom line, not your well-being.
Compensation from a personal injury claim is intended to place an injured party back in the position they were in before the car wreck. The process is not always straightforward as there may be disputes regarding liability and damages in the case. An experienced injury lawyer can help determine the cause of the incident through an independent investigation, establish who was at fault, and gather the evidence necessary to support your claim. Some of the factors that should be considered in rollover accident cases include road defects and defective vehicle parts and equipment.
The design and maintenance of public roads fall under the responsibility of the government entity. When a road defect contributes to a crash, a claim may be filed against the public agency responsible for the upkeep of the roadway. Conversely, an automaker may be held liable for damages occurring from a vehicle roof resulting in an exacerbation of injuries from a defect. In rollover accident cases, this may be insufficient roof crush resistance, as outlined in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 216.
