Philadelphia Rollover Accident Attorney

If you have been injured in a rollover car accident, expenses arising out of medical treatment or carrying out repairs to your vehicle are inevitable. One of the most popular vehicles today is the Sport Utility Vehicle or SUV. However, because of their high center of gravity, the SUV is more prone to rollover accidents than other lower vehicles, especially if the vehicle leaves the road or the driver makes a sharp turn. Figures from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2011 show that most passenger cars have about a 10% chance of rollover if involved in a single vehicle crash, while SUVs have between 14% and 23%. Even if you have insurance coverage, you may be shocked to find there are limitations to the kind of compensation you can claim after the accident.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a rollover accident in Philadelphia, you need to call The Pearce Law Firm today at (215) 557-8686.

What May Not Be Covered?
Many insurance policies restrict the damages you can claim compensation for. Typically, with limited tort coverage policies, you may not be able to sue for damages that cannot be translated into cash terms directly unless the accident is deemed to have caused serious injuries. For example, you may be able to claim compensation for replacing the windshield of your car, which was damaged in the accident but not for the pain and suffering that you have endured as a result of the crash. Exceptions may be applicable when you have suffered serious injuries in the accident, which has caused a permanent disfigurement or a severe impairment of a critical bodily function. Claims may also be admissible if the rollover accident has resulted in a fatality.
