A blown tire. A collision with a curb. An unexpectedly sharp corner. These are just some of the factors that can lead to or cause a rollover car accident in Phoenix. In some instances, it can be difficult to determine what caused a car to roll and it may be up to professional accident reconstruction experts to try and sort through the facts of the crash.
But regardless of what led to the impact or the roll, in the vast majority of collisions, negligence or recklessness played a role. Whether it was a driver operating too fast for conditions, a company that designed and manufactured a defective tire, or even poor road design, these crashes can generally be traced to a mistake or a failure to act on the part of one or more people. When such an incident takes place, the laws of Arizona step in to right the wrongs done to the innocent as much as possible. As it is impossible to reverse time and prevent an accident from taking place, the laws instead enable a victim or that victim’s surviving family members to bring a civil claim for their damages against any and all of those people who are responsible. This can lead to a financial recovery on behalf of victims for damages like medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Speaking to a personal injury attorney with experience representing car accident victims in Phoenix can help you realize what options may be available to you if you have been hurt in a crash.
Police in Scottsdale have confirmed that a serious rollover car accident yesterday left two women with significant injuries though it is not yet clear what led to the crash. Both women were in the same vehicle which was traveling near Scottsdale Road and McCormick at approximately 1:00 a.m. when the vehicle rolled.
Both women are in their 20s and were taken by ambulances to an area hospital for evaluation and treatment. Though their injuries are considered serious, they are both expected to survive.
Police are still in the process of reviewing the incident in an effort to determine what led to the collision and whether negligence played a role. As part of the investigation, both victims as well as witnesses are being interviewed.
