Rollovers Are a Leading Cause of Death in Single-Vehicle Injury Accidents
In 2018, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reported that “other causes”—mostly rollovers, they noted—caused more than one out of every five vehicle accident deaths that occurred in pickup trucks or SUVs, and one of every ten that occurred in cars. When it came to single-vehicle accidents, rollovers and “other causes” comprised a full 30 percent of the fatality accidents.
This tells us two important things about rollover accidents:
- Trucks, SUVs, and other taller vehicles are at a greater risk of rollover
- Rollover accidents are often single-vehicle accidents
When it comes time to take legal action in a rollover accident, both of these points should be taken into consideration. Our attorneys know that some rollovers may occur because of a design defect in the vehicle or a problem with the road design that makes it especially dangerous.
At the same time, not everything is always how it appears in a single-car accident. There is often another liable motorist, but they may not have received damage to their vehicle or received very little damage. In some cases, they remain on the scene, but in others, they might not stop. A rollover can happen when another driver:
- Sideswipes your vehicle
- Crowds you off the road
- Forces you to make a sudden move to avoid a collision
Any of these accident types may support an insurance claim and out-of-court settlement agreement or a personal injury lawsuit. If you suffered injuries in a Birmingham rollover accident, let a car accident attorney from the Morris Bart law firm review your case for free. Call (205) 380-4158 now to get started.

Damages Recoverable in a Birmingham Rollover Accident Settlement
The damages recoverable in a Birmingham rollover accident depend greatly on a number of factors, including:
- The severity of your wounds and injuries
- The expenses and losses related to your accident and injuries
- The strength of your case against the at-fault party
Your attorney will work to document your damages and provide evidence to support a demand for a fair settlement. Evidence will likely include paperwork and expert testimony to bolster your claim, which may include compensation for:
- Current and future accident-related medical care
- Current and future lost wages and diminished earning capacity
- Property damages, including the replacement of your vehicle
- Pain and suffering
- Other noneconomic damages
Rollover accidents can be very serious and sometimes deadly. If a member of your family passed away in a Birmingham rollover accident, you may be able to pursue wrongful death damages based on the state’s wrongful death statute.
There Are Time Limits on How Long You Have to Act
Under Alabama’s statute of limitations on personal injury accidents, Ala. Code § 6-2-38, car accident victims generally have two years from the date the accident occurred to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver, auto manufacturer, or another liable party. There are exceptions to this rule, however. You could have more time or less, depending on the facts of your case.
One of our Birmingham rollover accident lawyers may help you determine the filing deadline in your case and the steps you can take together to decide if you need to file a lawsuit to seek a payout.
