Some Causes of Single Vehicle Rollover Accidents

Driving too fast for road conditions does not necessarily mean you are not covered by insurance.Single vehicle rollover accidents are most commonly due to

  • driving too fast for road conditions
  • falling asleep while driving and
  • racing.

Advice for Injury Victims of Single Vehicle Rollover Accidents

When a single vehicle rollover happens in “black ice” conditions, the insurer often argues the “inevitable accident” defence. This means that the driver of the automobile could not have avoided the collision or rollover due to the “black ice” conditions on the highway. The defence is an absolute defence and means that, if successfully argued, the injured person is not entitled to any compensation because the driver was not negligent. This defence is difficult to maintain.

Each case is fact specific and litigation will be required to discover all of the facts the driver was aware of before and during travel.

Joseph A. Nagy has handled many of these cases and can assist you in fighting the insurer arguing this defence to ensure you are fairly compensated.

I did quite a bit of research before deciding to go with Joe. He immediately took away my stress dealing with insurance companies and the games they play. With the weight off my shoulders, I was finally able to concentrate on recovering from my injuries.

Him and his team went above and beyond expectations providing me with lots of info, guidance, what to expect, always available, promptly replying, and much more. My case is not a simple case and I know I am in good hands with Joe. I know he will fight hard on my side regardless of how much work it may end up taking. He has the expertise to take my case to the very end and I trust him in every way to represent me in my best interest. The most admirable trait about Joe is that he’s absolutely caring. He’s a people person and understands what I’m going through. He’s passionate about helping people and I see that with the way he handles my case.

Best decision I ever made hiring Joe. Anyone who has him on their team can rest assured that they are well taken care of. I recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!
