Have You Been Injured In A Car, Van Or SUV Rollover Accident?
A rollover vehicle accident occurs when the wheels leave the road and the vehicle rolls over from side to side. It can be a serious accident resulting in severe injuries to the driver and occupants, and often there are fatalities involved.

Attorneys at Nguyen Lawyers have successfully represented hundreds of injured auto accident clients.
About Rollover Accidents
In an accident such as an automobile, SUV or van rollover, the motorist and passengers have no control over the situation. A person relies on air bags and seat belts to restrain them and keep them from harm or injury. There is no protection from flying objects in the vehicle or from the roof collapsing. Commonly, injuries are caused by ejection from the vehicle, seat belt injuries, roof collapses, and seat belt and air bag failures. The following are some of the injuries received from rollover accidents:
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones or amputations
- Crushing injuries to body
- Internal injuries from the restraint of a seat belt
- Severe trauma to the body causing death
