Rollover accidents are particularly severe motor vehicle accidents, often resulting in serious injury or death. Several factors can contribute to a rollover accident, including the driver’s behavior, road conditions, and environmental conditions. The majority of rollover-related fatalities do not involve any vehicle besides the one that rolled over, highlighting the critical role of driver behavior in these types of accidents.
When you or a loved one has been involved in a rollover accident, we’ve got you covered. The accident attorneys at Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. have in-depth experience and a track record of success in advocating on behalf of accident victims to recover the compensation they deserve.
Rollover accidents are particularly dangerous. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 90 percent of the vehicles involved in fatal, single-vehicle rollover accidents were involved in routine driving maneuvers — such as driving straight or going around a curve — at the time of the accident. This further suggests the significant role of driver behavior in rollover accidents.
While any type of vehicle can rollover, certain vehicles such as SUVs, vans, and pickup trucks are particularly susceptible. These vehicles are taller, narrower, and have higher centers of gravity, and make them more prone to rollover if they are involved in a single-vehicle crash.
Other factors that contribute to rollover accidents, according to the NHTSA, include the following:

How much time do I have to file a claim for a rollover accident in Pennsylvania? +
Under Pennsylvania’s statutes of limitations — the legal deadlines for filing a claim in the state’s civil court — you have two years from the time of the accident to file a claim for a rollover accident. Your rollover vehicle accident claim must be filed before this two-year deadline expires. If you do not file in time, the Pennsylvania court may dismiss your case and then you will have lost your opportunity to recover any damages. If you are concerned that you may not be able to file your claim before this deadline expires, it is best to consult with an experienced car accident attorney.
I endured emotional pain and suffering as a result of my rollover accident. How is that loss measured in an accident claim? +
In situations where the victim sustained a loss that does not have an exact monetary value, such as emotional pain and suffering, the Pennsylvania court will take into consideration several factors to assign a monetary value to that loss.
