How Rollover Accidents Occur in Warner Robins
Rollover accidents are not one of the most common types of traffic accidents, but they often cause significant injuries when they do occur. The occupants of the car that rolls over experience multiple impacts as the vehicle hits the ground and other objects. Occupants also have a high risk of being ejected during rollover accidents.
According to SaferCar, there are two primary ways that rollover accidents occur:
- The vehicle is tripped and rolls.
- The vehicle is untipped but rolls for another reason.
A tripped vehicle has hit a guardrail, another vehicle, another object, or has run off the road and down an embankment or its tires dug into soft soil. Any of these events can lead to a rollover in the same way that an object in the walkway can cause a person to trip and fall.
In an untipped rollover, the driver likely attempts to avoid an object or another vehicle or to overcorrect, and the vehicle rolls as a result. This is most common in SUVs, vans, and trucks, although it is possible in most vehicles.
Both tripped and untipped rollovers can occur as a result of another driver, whether or not that other driver actually collides with the car that rolls over. The team from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can get to the bottom of your collision case, determine who was involved, assign liability, and present evidence to prove the case.

Bader Scott Injury Lawyers Know How to Build a Rollover Accident Case and Pursue Compensation
If our team accepts your accident case, a Warner Robins rollover accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will take the steps necessary to develop a claim and seek the compensation you deserve based on the evidence we collected. The steps we will take to do this could include:
- Reconstructing your accident and proving the cause
- Proving negligence and assigning liability
- Evaluating your medical records to understand your injuries
- Learning as much as possible about your prognosis
- Documenting your damages
Sometimes, the at-fault driver’s insurer will claim that comparative negligence played a role in your case, and O.C.G.A. §51-11-7 should apply. This statute says that if you contributed to your own injuries, the value of your recoverable damages will go down in proportion to your shared fault. This is applicable as long as the court finds that your proportion of fault is no more than 49 percent.
However, we will fight this type of allegation as much as possible. We want you to be able to recover as much compensation as possible to pay for your medical care, lost wages, and other expenses.

Securing Damages After a Warner Robins Rollover Accident
Unless there is some reason we need to take your case to court and present our evidence to the Judge and jury, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers usually attempts to reach an out-of-court settlement with the insurance company following this type of accident. We will, however, go to court if necessary.
In either situation, we will present strong evidence to prove negligence and liability, as well as to demonstrate the range and value of losses you suffered as a result of the accident. This is how we prove what a fair settlement or court award will look like. The evidence we present will include proof of your:
- Treatment, medical care, and related expenses
- Lost wages and diminished ability to work
- Property damages, including replacing your car
- Rental car costs
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering losses
- Mental anguish
- Other non-economic damages
In addition, O.C.G.A §51-4-2 allows certain surviving family members to pursue wrongful death damages. They may be available to you or other family members if your loved one died in the accident.
Statute of Limitations on Filing a Warner Robins Rollover Suit
Depending on where your accident occurred in Warner Robins, your case may be in the jurisdiction of either Houston County or Peach County. We can also take cases to court in other nearby areas, if necessary. If we do need to take your case to court, O.C.G.A §9-3-33 generally gives us only two years from the accident date to file the initial paperwork. We must not miss this deadline.
