A lot of consumers purchase large vehicles like sport utility vehicles, or SUVs, because they give them a sense of security. Sadly, the opposite can be true. With all that extra weight and metal, SUVs, vans, and many trucks can actually become top-heavy, leading to serious or even deadly rollover accidents. Once all that weight is upside down, the roof may even collapse. If you or a loved one have been seriously hurt in a rollover accident, you need a legal team that understands these unique types of cases and has the resources and experience to fight for your rights.

When you are hurt in a rollover car accident, a number of parties may be liable for causing or contributing to your injuries. The experienced attorneys of Zlotolow & Associates will identify all responsible parties in your case, which may include:
Where product liability is the culprit, our office will investigate the manufacturer to see if similar accidents have happened involving the same type of vehicle. This may involve hiring engineering experts or consulting with auto recall specialists. They can help us to develop a strategy that shows the auto manufacturer knew of the risk but chose to disregard it and sell dangerous vehicles anyway.
In a personal injury case, compensation comes in the form of “damages.” Damages are the legal term for the ways that you were hurt or “what was lost” as a result of an accident. Zlotolow & Associates will work hard to establish all available damages in your case and pursue them through a settlement or verdict. These damages may include:
Various statutes of limitations apply to injury claims in New York. It depends on what your case involves. For instance, you generally have three years from the date of a crash in which to bring a car accident lawsuit. If you miss the deadline, your claim could be barred. For this reason, you should contact Zlotolow & Associates as soon as possible. We will determine the time limits that apply to your claim and take immediate steps to pursue the compensation that you deserve.
