Rollover accidents are exceedingly dangerous and scary. If you were in a vehicle that tipped or rolled over, you may now be facing catastrophic injuries. You may expect weeks or months of recovery, or worse, you may have to come to terms with a disfigurement or disability. The risk of significant injuries after a rollover accident is particularly high if you were in an older vehicle that was not equipped with the latest safety technology or if you were not wearing your seat belt.
