What can I recover in a rollover car accident claim?

In many rollover accidents, occupants are thrown from the vehicle. Even for those who remain inside the rolling vehicle, the extreme forces often lead to serious injuries and medical complications that may only reveal themselves years in the future. This can lead to:

  • Astronomical medical bills
  • Weeks or months out of work
  • The inability to return to your same job/inability to work at all
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Long-term disability

In cases of a fatal rollover accident, families can recover:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of potential lifetime earnings, income, and services
  • Loss of love, companionship, affection, care, etc.

All the above are compensable. But to recover these damages, you must establish your injuries and other losses were related to the accident. You can do so with medical records, medical bills, W-2s, pay stubs, and pain journals.
