Rollover Accident Personal Injury Lawsuit
Even in a single–vehicle accident, where it was caused by a rollover, may result in a Massachusetts personal injury lawsuit. This is because, although no other driver is at fault for the accident, perhaps the vehicle manufacturer is. Rollover’s occur when there is a defect on the vehicle. Assuming, there was no driver error and the motorist operated the vehicle safely on the curve, if it still rolled over then the equipment needs to be reviewed.
If the manufacture has produced a vehicle or tires that are prone to rollover even during normal use then it would be responsible to the injured driver in a products liability personal injury lawsuit. Even the middle-man, who simply installs or inspects new tires could be held liable. If the person was negligent in maintaining the tires or alignment system and the vehicle rolled over causing injury, that person would be liable to the victim. Although, it is counter-intuitive to think that brand new tires could not possibly be the fault of any accident it is still something to take a look at. If a new brand or line of tires has been installed, and has not been on all types of road services before, the manufacturer may be liable for not warning about potential harm in untested road conditions.
