Little Rock SUV Rollover Accidents
Due to a high center of gravity, sport utility vehicles (SUVs) tend to roll over more than other vehicles when turning. Many SUVs roll over while turning due to speeding. That is why it is crucial that SUV drivers understand their vehicles and be careful while driving. SUV rollover collisions often leave victims with serious injuries, including lacerations, broken bones, skull fractures, spinal cord injuries, and more. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries from an SUV rollover accident, you should contact one of the Little Rock car accident lawyers at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz.

For an example of an SUV rollover collision, let’s say that you are riding as a passenger in an SUV on East 9th Street in Pulaski County on your way to the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, located at 1 Airport Drive, Little Rock, Arkansas 72202. At an intersection, your driver attempts to turn, but he is going too fast. The SUV, as a result, rolls over, causing you to suffer some of the common injuries sustained by individuals involved in car accidents, such as broken bones, lacerations, spinal cord injuries, skull fractures, head trauma, and more.
If you sustain injuries in an auto accident, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. If an injury is catastrophic in nature, medical treatment should be rendered immediately. Many people injured in the Little Rock area receive medical treatment at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, located at 4301 West Markham Street, Little Rock, Arkansas 72205. Obtaining a copy of the documentation detailing your injuries can help you validate your claim of negligence against the other driver in order to recover damages for your injuries, losses, medical bills (past and/or future), lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Recovering damages from the other driver requires you to establish the other driver’s negligence, which can range from distracted driving or driving while fatigued to drunk driving or reckless driving. In order to establish negligence, you must prove that the other driver owed you a duty of reasonable care, breached said duty, and caused you to suffer injuries as a result. In some circumstances, you may be able to assert a product liability claim if the vehicle was not tested properly or designed in an unsafe manner. A knowledgeable car accident attorney in the Little Rock area can help you substantiate your claim and inform you of which injuries and losses may entitle you to economic and non-economic damages once liability has been established.Talk to a Skilled Car Wreck Lawyer Today
