Rollover Crashes in New Mexico
When a car falls over on its roof or side during a crash, it is known as a rollover collision. Rollovers are a severe type of car accident. These crashes are particularly violent and can result in occupants being ejected from the vehicle entirely.
These crashes have become more common in the past two decades due to the popularity of SUVs. These vehicles are more likely to turn over in the event of a crash. Nearly 35 percent of all fatal passenger vehicle accidents involved rollovers.
Luckily, those injured in a rollover may be eligible to recover lost compensation. Will Ferguson & Associates has a proven track record helping those injured in a rollover collision. Discuss your case with an Albuquerque car crash lawyer by giving us a call at (505) 243-5566.
