Corpus Christi Rollover Accidents
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration notes that victims of a rollover accident are twice as likely to suffer serious injuries or death as the victims of accidents in which the wheels of the vehicle do not leave the ground. The driver and passengers also have a greater chance of being thrown from the vehicle, which can cause further injuries.
If you or someone you love was involved in a vehicle rollover accident, you may be entitled to legal representation. Carabin & Shaw can evaluate your case and determine who is liable for the accident. A vehicle defect may have contributed to your injuries, a negligent driver could have caused the initial impact or poorly maintained road could have initiated the rollover.
If it was a vehicle defect that caused the rollover, you may have what is called a “products liability” case. In such cases you would make a claim, and usually have to sue, the manufacturer of the vehicle. It is very, very difficult to make such claims without the assistance of an experienced attorney. Our experienced injury lawyers have made, and won, such claims many times. Let us evaluate your claim to see if there is a products liability claim involved. If there is, we will fight the good fight with you against the manufacturer.
If the rollover was caused by poorly maintained road, you are in another situation which is almost impossible to sustain without an experienced attorney on your side.
The first thing which must be determined is exactly what government entity was responsible for maintaining the road. This is a technical legal issue which really needs an experienced injury lawyer to resolve. Once the correct government entity is determined, then it really takes an experienced injury lawyer to get through the details of exactly how to get them to pay. If there is the possibility of a defective roadway being involved in your rollover accident, give Carabin Shaw a call and let us help you hold the government responsible.

Due to the incredible damage that can happen to the vehicles involved, those who have been victimized in an accident such as this can suffer from serious, catastrophic injuries.
In our experience, when these accidents occur, the crushing of the roof and/or violent jostling of the vehicle can cause severe injuries, including fractures, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, brain injuries, and other neck and back injuries. Such devastating injuries have a high probability of causing paralysis, disability or fatalities.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a rollover accident, it is critical to consult with a Corpus Christi personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
