Albany, New York, Rollover Accidents Attorneys
Cars and passenger trucks are supposed to be designed for safety and stability. They should be able to resist a rollover and if the vehicle does roll over, extra precautions should be taken to protect people in the passenger compartment.
Some vehicles, however, are more prone to rollover accidents because of the way they are designed or used. When this is the case, it’s especially important that the vehicle have a good restraint system and a strong roof to prevent cave-ins and head injuries. Vehicles most likely to experience rollover are SUVs, some jeeps, ATVs and buses.

Catastrophic Injuries Require Maximum Financial Compensation
The sad fact is, victims of rollover accidents usually suffer from very severe injuries.
- The violent motion and tremendous force of a rollover accident typically causes neck, back and spinal cord injury.
- If windows break, passengers can suffer lacerations, life-threatening blood loss, nerve damage and scarring.
- If the roof of the vehicle caves in, passengers suffer crushing head injuries.
- If passengers weren’t wearing seat belts (always the case in bus accidents) or the seat belts were defective, passengers can be thrown from the vehicle. This often results in fatal injuries.
These types of injuries change lives. They are tragic and costly. It’s vitally important to obtain a financial recovery that will pay for high medical bills, rehabilitative therapy, and loss of income.
In some instances the victim will become permanently disabled and require round-the-clock care. This is more than most families can handle on their own. Any financial settlement in such a case should include the cost of in-home or nursing home care. At Powers & Santola we will ensure that a strong case is made for full and fair compensation that takes into account a person’s needs over the course of their life.
You have only one chance for a financial recovery. It needs to be sufficient and well managed. When a large settlement is received, an attorney can help you structure that settlement to ensure the funds are available as long as needed.
