What Causes Vehicle Rollovers in Los Angeles?
California is a tort-based car insurance state. The party most at fault for causing the collision will be financially responsible for all other parties’ damages. It will be up to you or your Los Angeles car accident attorney to identify who or what caused your vehicle rollover if you wish to obtain compensation. Identifying the most common causes of rollovers could help you determine fault.
- Roadway defects. Striking a pothole or swerving sharply to avoid a roadway defect could lead to a vehicle rollover. In these cases, the city could be liable for negligently failing to repair the road.
- Vehicle defects. Some vehicles have defective designs that could contribute to the likelihood of a rollover, such as SUVs. Others may contain defective parts, such as tires that blow out, which can cause rollover accidents.
- Drivers. Another driver could cause your rollover accident by swerving into your lane or otherwise forcing you to jerk the wheel. Overcorrecting to avoid an accident could cause your vehicle to flip or roll over.
If an on-duty driver caused your car accident, such as a commercial truck driver, the company he or she works for could be vicariously liable for your damages. Holding a company accountable rather than an individual could result in better compensation since companies generally have more insurance and higher coverage limits. Our attorneys can help you identify the at-fault entity in your Los Angeles vehicle rollover case.

The potential value of your claim will depend on the nature of your injuries and how they have impacted your life. Do not assume an auto insurance company is offering you a fair settlement. The insurance company may be underestimating your damages to save money. Instead, contact an attorney for a free case review at Rose, Klein & Marias LLP for an honest and accurate evaluation.
