Rollover Accidents Lawyer in Boise & Twin Falls
Rollover accidents can be some of the most terrifying forms of collision on Idaho roads, and they can also be some of the most deadly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has found that, while rollover collisions account for only about 3% of all accidents, they are responsible for approximately 33% of all motor vehicle fatalities. Those who survive rollover crashes are often saddled with serious injuries and lifelong physical limitations, not to mention the overwhelming costs of being injured in a rollover accident.

After a rollover crash, contact a seasoned, professional, and trial-ready Boise rollover accidents lawyer at Pedersen & Whitehead for a no-cost consultation on your rollover claim.
Poor roadway maintenance can result in rollover accidents
Rollover accidents are frequently caused by so-called “trips” in the road. A vehicle is tripped when it is knocked off-balance, causing some of the vehicles’ tires to lose contact with the roadway. When trips happen at a sufficient speed and the driver is unable to regain control of the vehicle, rollovers can happen.
Objects in the roadway, curbs, guardrails, or bad potholes can all become trips under certain circumstances, as can loose gravel from an unfinished construction site or project. When vehicles rollover because of poor roadway maintenance or a failure to warn of roadside construction, counties or those responsible for road maintenance may be liable to the victims of those rollover crashes. Pedersen & Whitehead’s knowledgeable attorneys are experienced in pursuing claims against negligent government bodies responsible for causing an accident victim’s injuries. Contact their Boise or Twin Falls law offices as soon as possible if you believe you may have a claim against the government or a negligent driver who caused your crash.
