Lawyers Handling Rollover Accidents
Some of the most serious injuries are those resulting from SUV (sport utility vehicle) rollover accidents. Many people are surprised to learn this, especially since SUVs are known as being tough, durable and sustainable motor vehicles. However, due to their higher centers of gravity, being narrow and top-heavy, they are more prone to tipping over.
SUV rollover accident victims are entitled to seek compensation for their injuries. In Michigan, even if no other vehicles are involved in an accident, regardless of fault, injured accident victims have substantial rights to obtaining no-fault benefits.

SUV Rollover Accidents In Michigan
There are some common reasons for why SUV rollover accidents are so frequent. For one, the higher center of gravity increases the chances for an SUV to tilt and roll over. Moreover, SUVs are frequently used to carry heavy loads, aggravating the chances for an already rollover-prone vehicle.
The design and manufacture of an SUV are also very crucial. If a design is defective or the SUV was manufactured improperly, there are also product liability issues to consider. Furthermore, there are certain safety features that must be on an SUV, like a roll bar, to prevent the top of an SUV from caving in or getting crushed.
If another party was the one who caused your injury (in some cases more than one party), then you can seek damages for pain and suffering against the at-fault driver. Pain and suffering is for noneconomic damages. Also, you have a claim against your own insurance company for economic losses such as medical expenses, cost of rehabilitation, loss of income, loss of earning capacity, etc.
If someone else caused your injury, you have a pain and suffering claim against the at-fault driver (noneconomic damages) as well as a claim against your own insurance company for economic loses (cost of rehab, medical expenses).
