It’s not easy to recover from any car accident. Rollover accidents, however, can be particularly traumatic. When you come away from a rollover accident, you may have to endure significant physical injuries as well as substantial financial losses. Your subsequent rollover accident recovery can take a considerable amount of time, not to mention even more money.

If you’re struggling with your post-accident bills, know that you don’t have to take them on alone. You can contact a rollover accident attorney in Tucson to discuss what your post-accident legal options may look like. Zanes Law Injury Lawyers can calculate the compensation to which you may be entitled and fight to get it to you.

Rollover Accident Attorneys Do Not Add to Your Financial Burden

If you get into an accident, you want to trust your insurance provider to help you recover. While you’re waiting for your provider to process your claim, though, your incoming bills can feel insurmountable. An attorney’s fees can seem like another unthinkable expense in the aftermath of a rollover accident.

However, Zanes Law’s rollover accident lawyers in Tucson do not ask you to pay for our immediate services. Instead, we operate on contingency. We only request compensation for our services if we win your case.

This means that you can come and consult with our team without worrying about the cost of our representation. Together we can calculate the compensation to which you may be entitled. Once we know what financial support we’re fighting for, we can submit a legal complaint on your behalf. This complaint is the first step on your journey toward post-accident financial recovery.

When to Call a Rollover Accident Lawyer

The sooner you’re able to contact a rollover accident lawyer in Tucson, the sooner you can discuss the compensation to which you may be entitled to after a collision. Our attorneys can stand with you as you discuss your accident with law enforcement representatives. Moreover, we can prevent you from making statements that might hurt your case for compensation.

In other words, our attorneys want to make the process of protecting yourself and your right to compensation as straightforward as possible. When we’re at the scene of your accident with you, we can give you the support you need to establish your right to financial support.

Negotiating for Settlements or Going to Civil Court: How to React to a Rollover Accident

We do more than guide you through the days immediately following your accident. When you meet with our team for a consultation, you can discuss how you’d like to pursue compensation for your losses. You can either discuss a settlement in negotiations or pursue a traditional trial.

A traditional trial allows you to state your case before a jury and judge. After exchanging information during discovery and presenting your opening statement, our attorneys can bring in witnesses to attest to your lack of fault. Bystanders and expert witnesses can speak to the value of your case and convince a jury of your right to compensation.

That said, you retain the right to pursue negotiations before and during a civil trial. Negotiations tend to take less time than rollover trials. However, you may be expected to compromise on the amount of compensation you initially requested. Our attorneys can advocate for you to receive what you requested, challenging any attempt by the liable party to shrug off their responsibilities.

Using Evidence to Establish Rollover Accident Liability

In the immediate aftermath of your rollover accident, you have a limited amount of time to gather evidence of a violated duty of care. When you gather both physical evidence and the names of witnesses who can contribute to your case, you make it easier for an attorney to establish liability later down the line.

We name specific parties liable for your losses when we have the evidence available to back our statements. With that in mind, we can name parties other than your fellow drivers as liable for your losses. Your rollover accident claim can also address:

  • Automotive manufacturers
  • Truck drivers and their parent companies
  • Rideshare drivers and their parent companies
  • Truck loading companies
  • Small businesses
  • Corporations
  • Auto mechanics

So long as you have the evidence you need to defend your assertion of liability, you can request that the named party compensate you for your accident’s economic and non-economic losses. Be sure to include an estimate of your desired compensation in your complaint that includes:

  • Medical expenses related to post-accident care
  • Vehicular repairs or replacement
  • The cost of replacing or repairing your lost property
  • Lost opportunities to work or wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional damages
  • Wrongful death and funeral expenses

Comparative Negligence in Tucson’s Rollover Accidents

Arizona’s understanding of comparative negligence is a generous one. The state allows victims of a rollover accident to file for compensation even if they contributed a substantial percentage of fault to their accident. In fact, victims can file even if they contributed 99% of an accident’s fault.

That said, Arizona reduces the amount of compensation a rollover victim receives from their case by the percentage of fault they allegedly contributed to their accident. For example, a settlement of $100,000 can drop to $50,000 or less if you contributed 50% or more to your accident.

With this in mind, you can work with a Tucson, AZ, rollover accident attorney to contest any accusations a defendant makes regarding your role in your accident. Alternatively, you can come to a settlement agreement outside of court to avoid putting a percentage of your settlement at risk.

Tucson’s Car Accident Statute of Limitations

Arizona Revised Statute § 12-542 controls the amount of time in which you may submit a complaint regarding your rollover accident losses. According to this statute, you must file your complaint within two years of the day your rollover accident takes place. If you don’t act within this two-year period, Arizona can deny you your right to legal action.
