One of the most common injuries sustained from Seguin rollover accidents are those caused by a roof of the vehicle being caved in. When a roof caves in or an object on the ground crushes into the vehicle, occupants of that vehicle can sustain serious head trauma, neck and spinal cord injuries. The roof of the vehicle being crushed has also contributed to passenger ejection in some car accident cases, causing severe injuries or death. If you have been involved in a rollover accident in Seguin causing severe injuries to you or your passengers, contact the experienced attorneys at Carabin & Shaw today. We can guide you through the legal process of filing a personal injury claim.
Although not all rollover accidents can be prevented, there are a few things you can do to avoid being involved in one of the many Seguin rollover accidents that occur. The following list provides some tips that could be life saving:Choose a vehicle with a wide base and low center of gravity
Pickup trucks and minivans are rollover prone. The way these vehicles are built make them very unstable and likely to roll. Cars built lower to the ground have less of a chance of a rollover and make for a safer option.Make sure both you and your passengers are buckled up
Most Seguin auto accidents where an occupant of the vehicle was killed was the result of the passengers not being buckled in. Once the car goes rolling, passengers are thrown around and can even be tossed from the car. The best thing you can do to keep yourself safe while riding in a car is to buckle up right when you get in.Take turns on the road with caution
Speed is a common culprit when rollovers occur. Simply slowing down for turns can save your life and the lives of others sharing the road with you.Be mindful of driving conditions
Being sure to drive with respect for the driving conditions is a sure way to avoid a rollover. Even the smallest amount of moisture on the road can send you into an accident. If ice, snow or water are present slow down and drive with caution.Stay sober when you drive
Drinking and driving don't mix. Driving while under the influence causes drivers to drive erratic and make unsafe driving decisions leading to accidents. Plan ahead, be sure to find a ride home or travel with a designated driver if you plan on drinking.Use the two second rule
Be sure not to tailgate. Give yourself enough time to safely stop or maneuver out of the way of the driver ahead of you.
