Rollover Accidents in Chicago
Certain types of accidents are more likely to result in fatal or life-threatening injuries. Rollover crashes are fairly rare, only accounting for roughly 2.1% of passenger-vehicle crashes in 2010. However, there were 7,600 people killed in rollover crashes that year, accounting for roughly 35% of deadly passenger-vehicle crashes that year. Nearly 69% of those killed in rollover accidents were unrestrained at the time of the accident.
Dealing with the aftermath of a serious crash is a long and frustrating process, and many crash victims are unprepared to protect their rights. The financial impact of medical care, repair bills, and lost wages can be extremely disruptive to our lives and leave accident victims in a difficult financial and emotional situation.
