Rollover Car Crashes
Rollover accidents are often caused by distracted driving or vehicle defects. Whatever the cause, these accidents can be particularly deadly for passengers. They can be ejected from the vehicle if not properly restrained, often resulting in fatal injuries.
When a loved one dies in a crash, their families often have to take on unforeseen expenses such as medical bills and funeral arrangements, creating both a financial and emotional catastrophe in some cases.
