Rollover Car Accidents: Know Your Rights - Arlington, TX
Any type of car accident has the potential to cause personal injury and financial damages, but some are known to be more dangerous than others. Rollover car accidents frequently result in catastrophic injuries and steep financial losses. Individuals injured in a rollover car accident should know their rights regarding monetary compensation for damages.
Personal injury attorney Roger “Rocky” Walton works with Arlington, TX, car accident victims. He helps them understand their legal rights following a rollover car accident and assists them in holding liable parties accountable for the economic and non-economic damages connected to the collision.
Who Is Responsible for Rollover Car Accident Damages?
After a car accident, we need to establish liability for the collision. Depending on the exact cause of the accident, liable parties may include another driver, the municipality responsible for road conditions, or an automobile parts manufacturer. Whoever is found liable is legally responsible for compensating accident victims for collision losses.
Do I Have to Accept a Settlement from an Insurance Provider?
Drivers and their insurance providers often deny liability or try to minimize accident damages. Accident victims are not legally obligated to accept a settlement offered by an insurance provider. We highly recommend hiring a personal injury attorney to explain your rights and work on your behalf to collect maximum compensation for accident damages.
Rocky Walton is a Texas board-certified personal injury attorney. He has helped numerous Arlington accident victims establish liability and collect the compensation to which they are entitled. To prove liability, our legal team works with accident investigators and recreationists. Through the collection of evidence, we pinpoint the accident’s causation factor, identify liable parties, and demonstrate the full extent of collision damages.
What Type of Monetary Recovery Am I Due?
Individuals injured in rollover accidents are entitled to recover compensation for their losses. The recoverable damages vary based on the losses suffered. Rollover car accidents frequently cause physical, emotional, and financial losses. Monetary compensation may be awarded for the following losses after a rollover car accident:
- Medical expenses and anticipated future medical costs
- Cost of therapy and rehabilitation
- Lost wages and any diminished wage-earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Wrongful death losses (awarded to surviving family members in the event the accident results in a fatality)
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?
Rollover car accident victims have the right to file a personal injury claim through civil court, but the state’s statute of limitations establishes a window of time in which a claim must be filed. The statute of limitations for a personal injury claim in Texas is two years. The two-year deadline begins on the day of the car accident. It takes time to gather evidence and build a personal injury case so accident victims should start the process as soon as possible after a car crash.
