Rollover Car Accidents in Florida and Colorado

Car rollovers happen in Miami, Denver, and all across Florida and Colorado. These crashes involve a vehicle flipping or turning over onto its roof or side. The impact can cause occupants in the car to be thrown about the inside of the vehicle, which can cause serous injuries.


If you’ve been in a rollover crash, it’s very important to contact emergency medical help. The nature of these accidents means you may have hit your head and suffered serious head injuries. You may also want to contact a car accident attorney in Florida or Colorado—wherever your collision took place. You can always contact Flaxman Law Group. Our boutique law firm has offices in Miami, Homestead, Hollywood, and Denver, and we offer an initial free consultation so you can discuss your car crash and any options you might have for compensation with a car accident claims lawyer.

Understanding Rollover Crashes in Colorado and Denver

Any car can rollover in a crash, but SUVs and pickup trucks are especially vulnerable to this type of collision because they have a higher center of gravity. Most of these crashes are single vehicle accidents and a number of factors can contribute to these accidents:

  • Curbs and uneven surfaces. Soft shoulders on roads, poorly maintained roads, and curbs can also pose a danger because when a vehicle hits these areas the difference in height can cause a rollover.
  • Car design. If manufacturers create cars with a high center of gravity or other flaws, these vehicles can be more prone to rollover crashes.
  • Speed. High speeds increase the force of an accident, making it more likely that a car will flip when it encounters a solid object (such as a rail guard) rather than coming to a stop.

Common Injuries Caused by Rollovers

The severity of these crashes can lead to:

  • Cuts and lacerations, especially since windshields and windows can break in these accidents
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Injuries to the neck and shoulders, caused by hitting the car roof or caused by seatbelts
  • Strangulation, caused by seatbelts
  • Burns, which are a concern because a rollover can cause damage to the engine or can cause a gas spill, which can create a fire hazard

All of these injuries can be serious, but one challenge is that many survivors of rollovers may be dazed by the collision. They may not realize immediately that they have hit their head or have suffered an injury. For this reason, it’s important to always get a medical evaluation immediately. Since these collisions tend to be single vehicle crashes, you may also want to consult an experienced car accident and rollover collision attorney in your area–to make sure you get assistance in dealing with your insurance company.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
