All car crashes are frightening, but rollovers are particularly terrifying. Rollovers are particularly violent and particularly deadly. They leave occupants feeling particularly helpless, a feeling that often persists long after the event itself. When a rollover crash is caused by someone’s negligent or wrongful actions and it results in death or injury of another, our Santa Rosa rollover crash attorney is prepared to file a wrongful death or personal injury claim on behalf of the injured and/or surviving relatives. These claims seek to hold the at-fault party accountable and provide much needed compensation to those impacted by the terrifying event.
Rollover Accident Claims Life in Lake County
The Press Democrat reports that a 35 year-old woman died in a Lake County rollover crash on Sunday. CHP investigators say the woman was a passenger in a 1996 Honda Accord that was travelling south on Highway 39 near the Hill Road undercrossing when the vehicle started to drift towards the dirt median. Apparently, the driver overcorrected and lost control of the vehicle which proceeded to skid across the southbound lanes before hitting a curb and dirt embankment. The force of the impact caused the Accord to roll and slide off the road, landing on its roof on the adjoining frontage road.
