Baton Rouge Rollover Accident Lawyer
Rollovers are some of the most destructive of all accidents and tend to leave victims injured and in need of extensive medical care. A Baton Rouge rollover accident lawyer can help you recover the compensation you need.
Rollover accidents often lead to devastating injuries as drivers and passengers are crushed, thrown from the vehicle, or bounced around within the car. If you were hurt in a rollover, it is important to get as much money as possible for your injuries from the at-fault party. A Baton Rouge rollover accident lawyer from Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers can help you do so.
Medical Care After a Rollover Can Be Expensive
We understand—not everyone is comfortable with the idea of filing a personal injury lawsuit. The problem is that medical care is expensive, and after a rollover accident, you may need treatments for years to come. Regular visits, procedures, surgeries, and rehabilitation all add up when it comes to costs. Without filing a lawsuit, you could be stuck with these expenses in addition to suffering physically.
If You Weren’t at Fault, You Shouldn’t Have to Pay
By retaining an attorney, you can hold the negligent party responsible for the harm they caused you. Before we can file a claim on your behalf, we need to determine what caused the rollover and who contributed to it. For example, were you hit by a driver who had been drinking? Did the car rollover because of dangerous road conditions? Was a poor design or defective tire to blame?
Some common causes of rollover accidents are as follows:
- Being hit at high speeds
- Car malfunctioning or tipping over (manufacturer negligence)
- Getting sideswiped
- Being pushed off the road
Examining the evidence allows us to determine what happened, identify all negligent parties, name them in your lawsuit, and gather the proof necessary to demonstrate that they—and not you—were to blame.
Getting Money for Your Rollover Injuries
Working with an attorney from our office provides you with the best opportunity for maximizing the value of your auto wreck claim. First, we will ensure that your current and future medical bills are paid for. That, however, is not the only way that an injury can impact your life, so we will help you recover additional damages for what you’ve been through:
- Lost wages from being unable to work because of your recovery
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Transportation expenses
- Help from caregivers
- Remodeling the house to accommodate an injury or disability
- Pain and suffering
- Lost quality of life
Occasionally a jury will also award punitive damages to punish the negligent party. For example, an enraged driver who ran you off the road may be forced to pay punitive damages in hopes of dissuading that kind of behavior.
Suing on Behalf of a Deceased Crash Victim
Rollover accidents sometimes turn deadly. If your loved one died in a rollover, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of a Baton Rouge rollover accident lawyer. In a wrongful death claim, you can seek compensation for the following items:
- Medical bills incurred while trying to save your loved one
- Funeral and memorial expenses
- Lost wages estimated out to the retirement age of the deceased
- Lost retirement and healthcare benefits
- Pain and suffering
Only certain relatives of the deceased can file a wrongful death suit, and there is a liberative prescription that limits the time you have in which to do so, making it best to speak with a lawyer right away.
