Vehicle Rollover Accidents

Rollover Accident Attorney in Denver

Vehicle rollovers are among the deadliest types of traffic collision.  

As a result, rollover accidents account for about 20 percent of all fatal traffic accidents each year.  

Only about 2 percent of traffic collisions result in rollover. But that still results in more than 4,000 rollover crashes each year in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  

The popularity of large vehicles and SUVs, which have a higher center of gravity and are therefore more prone to rolling, has resulted in more than twice as many rollover collisions involving such vehicles in recent years.  

These are complex accident claims and typically result in very serious or fatal injury to drivers and occupants. Immediate consultation with an experienced Denver car accident attorney is the best thing you can do to protect your rights.  

Rollover Injury Claims in Colorado 

One of the reasons these claims are so complex is the likelihood that insurance companies and their attorneys will allege a victim was partially at fault.  

Colorado’s comparative negligence law is found under Revised Statute § 13-21-111. Colorado follows the rule of modified comparative negligence. What this means is that a victim’s damages can be reduced in proportion to percentage of fault and recovery will be barred if a victim is found more than 50 percent at fault for a collision or resulting injuries.  

Some of the ways insurance companies attempt to reduce liability by blaming victims of rollover collisions include:  

  • Failure to wear a seatbelt: More than three-quarters of those killed in rollover crashes were not restrained.  
  • Intoxicated driving: Those involved in rollover collisions, particularly single-vehicle crashes, are more likely to be intoxicated. Passengers who choose to ride with a driver under the influence may also be faulted.  
  • Unsafe driving: Speed, curb tripping, and other factors may be blamed.  
  • Roadway departure: A driver’s decision to leave the roadway to avoid a collision may be blamed.  
  • Unsafe vehicles: Bad tires or other mechanical issues may be blamed.  
  • Poor crash avoidance: About half of rollover accidents result from a driver attempting to take evasive action. Poor driving decisions and evasive maneuvering may be blamed.  

Motorists are often surprised to learn that insurance adjusters and investigators will make a determination of liability independent of the opinion of investigating offers at the scene - even in cases where citations are issued. Your case will be assigned to a team of adjusters, investigators and legal, medical and financial professionals, including defense attorneys, with the goal of limiting the insurance company’s liability.  

The more serious the claim, the more senior and experienced will be the team arrayed against you. Insurance companies don’t rely on one person - even one experienced person - to handle a claim. Why should you?
