If your rollover crash was caused by a negligent driver, you might be struggling with all kinds of serious injuries. How can you recover compensation for your injuries? How can an auto accident lawyer in Manchester help?

Why Are Rollover Crashes So Dangerous?

 The physics of a rollover crash makes their hazards somewhat obvious. When a car rolls over, the occupants may be tossed around like ragdolls. Even with proper seatbelt use, it may be impossible to avoid impacts with the interior of the vehicle.

Roof impacts are particularly problematic, and they are associated with serious neck and head injuries. Striking your head against the roof of a vehicle can leave you with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). It may also leave you with a serious neck or spine injury.

These types of injuries can be permanently disabling. A TBI may cause cognitive decline, brain damage, and severe psychological challenges. It might also cause the loss of motor control (the physical control of your body).

A spinal injury can be even more debilitating, often resulting in partial or total paralysis. It may be impossible to work and enjoy life after suffering this type of injury.

Rollover crashes become even more dangerous with the presence of certain hazards. These include the lack of seatbelts and the crumpling of roofs. If occupants do not wear seatbelts, they may be ejected from vehicles as they roll over. At high speeds, this can toss occupants out of windows – resulting in catastrophic injuries. Some occupants are crushed by their own vehicles after becoming ejected in this manner.

The nature of the vehicle can also make rollover crashes more serious. For example, a vehicle’s roof may crumple after hitting the ground, causing impacts to occupants. Sometimes, occupants are completely crushed because of fragile roof structures.

How Can I Recover Compensation for My Rollover Crash in New Hampshire? 

If you have been injured in a New Hampshire rollover crash, you may be able to recover compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent motorist who caused your accident. For example, your vehicle might have rolled over after being struck by a drunk driver or a distracted trucker.
