Rollover accidents, where a vehicle rolls over or tips onto its side or roof, can be seen not only in movies but also on the roads and highways of Seattle. In Washington state and all across the United States, rollover accidents contribute to a high fatality rate. This type of car accident can lead to broken necks, brain injuries, back injury, internal bleeding, paralysis, and other life-threatening injuries, especially when the accident occurs at high speeds.
Usually, victims of rollover accidents or family members of the victim who died in the accident benefit from being represented by a Seattle rollover accident attorney.
