Single Vehicle Rollover Accidents

Written by Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton Injury Lawyer

Advice for Injury Victims of a Single Vehicle Rollover Accident

If you have been injured in a single vehicle rollover accident, call Joseph A. Nagy, car accident lawyer, to be certain your insurance company pays you fair compensation - (780) 760-4878
I am Joseph A. Nagy, and I am an experienced Edmonton injury lawyer serving central and northern Alberta. As a “car accident lawyer”, my specialty is dealing with all types of motor vehicle accidents.

Inevitable Accident Defence

When a single vehicle rollover accident 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 accident 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.

Make Sure You Get Fair Compensation

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

I have handled many of these rollover accident cases and can help you fight an insurer arguing the “inevitable accident” defence and receive fair compensation.

If you are the victim of a single rollover accident, call (780) 760-4878 or contact me, Joseph A. Nagy, to discuss the steps I can recommend to ensure your insurance company treats you fairly. Free consultation. Free parking.

Joe took my case after I was dropped by my previous lawyer of almost 5 yrs. Joe explained the challenges my case was facing and how to best proceed, I feel he was honest with his assessment of my case and I appreciated his straight to the point attitude. I am very pleased to say he and Nicole (his assistant) always treated me with respect and never made me feel like any question or concerns I had were stupid were or bothersome. Much to my surprise my phone calls and emails were always answered in a very timely fashion. Nicole played a very big part in the smooth process of getting this case settled . Joe and Nicole are a great team and I highly recommend Joe if you are looking for a no nonsense straight to the point lawyer who gets things done. Thank you for settling my case so promptly.

Joe Nagy......all the way!!!! My accident happened in the fall of 2016 in BC . I first contacted a firm that is advertised everywhere only for them to tell me that I seemed to have a handle on the situation and to contact them again in 2 years. I then called Joe's office and I didn't have another worry. He took all of the thinking out of it and made everything easy for me . We exchanged a few phone calls throughout the year and a half and then it was over. Natalie was friendly and a great girl to work with. Joe cares and works for his client. Call Joe!

I worked with Joe for almost 4 years after my accident and I can honestly say he worked very hard for me. There are very few in the legal world that actually care about you, that see you as more than a paycheck, Joe is one. When I was suffering, he went out of his way to make sure I was ok, even helping me out of his own pocket when times were really tough. He is thorough, thoughtful and will be an absolute shark in fighting for you. Thanks for all your help Joe!

Some Causes of Single Vehicle Rollover Accidents

If you are involved in a single vehicle rollover accident, like this one, you need the help of an experienced and knowledgeable car accident lawyer. Single vehicle rollover accidents are most commonly due to

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

The standard auto policy (S.P.F.No.1) provides exclusions for coverage when a vehicle is involved in a “race or speed test.” Driving too fast for road conditions does not automatically mean that you are in a “race or speed test.” In Franko v. Zurich Insurance Co. 1999 AJ No. 173 (Q.B. (Q.L.), the Courts stated “Mere speed, or carelessness or even dangerousness does not necessarily lead to the conclusion that a race was in progress.” Here is an S.P.F.No.1.

If you have been involved in a single vehicle rollover accident, talk with an experienced and knowledgeable car accident lawyer who can make sure your insurance company provides fair compensation.


We were rear ended by a runaway logging truck in B.C. Our vehicle was crushed and no one was able to get out. We had severe orthopedic injuries. We needed a lawyer licensed to practice in B.C. to sue the driver of the logging truck and the logging truck company.

Joe did this for us and explained to us what we needed to do every step of the way. Joe understood the workings of ICBC and their lawyers. He was quite familiar with the litigation process and the steps we needed to take to prove our case. He referred us to excellent medical specialists. He kept us updated regularly on our case. He wasn’t intimidated by the other side’s lawyer. He pushed forward with the litigation so our case was not delayed. Eventually, the case settled out of Court and Joe got us a good settlement.

Joe was very interested in our case and fighting hard for us. He takes his job seriously and enjoys it. I felt that we were protected. We are happy we hired Joe. He was a very good lawyer for us.
