Types of Los Angeles Rollover Car Accidents
There are two ways rollover accidents occur: tripped and untripped. Both can occur as a result of another driver who makes a careless mistake or acts recklessly behind the wheel.
Tripped Rollover Accidents
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data shows that tripped rollover accidents account for about 95 percent of all rollover accidents. These accidents occur when the vehicle digs into soft soil, hits a guardrail, or hits another object. This effectively causes the vehicle to “trip” in the same way a person might trip over something on the sidewalk.
Un-Tripped Rollover Accidents
Un-tripped rollover accidents occur when a vehicle tries to swerve or dodge a hazard—an object in the road or a collision with another vehicle—and this causes the vehicle to tip and roll. In these cases, trucks, SUVs, and other tall vehicles are more at risk.
Building a Case after a Los Angeles Rollover
Either type of rollover accident may be caused by another driver and lead to a single-car incident. In some cases, these accidents may be the fault of a second driver, even though that driver was not involved in a collision. It may be possible to build a case even if there was no impact with another vehicle, depending on the unique circumstances and the evidence our team can gather.
If you were hurt in an accident, a Los Angeles rollover crashes lawyer may be able to help you hold the responsible party accountable. You can discuss your case for free with a member of the Pintas & Mullins Law Firm car accident team today.

One of Our Los Angeles Rollover Accident Lawyers May Be Able to Help with Your Civil Case
California has laws called the Fair Claims Settlement Practices Regulations (California Code of Regulations § 2695.7), meant to help accident victims get the money they need from insurance companies. However, these rules are not always effective at ensuring car accident victims get a just settlement or award. At Pintas & Mullins Law Firm, we work to ensure our clients do not experience any further damage as a result of their accident and injuries.
You did not cause your rollover accident. Instead of paying out of your own pocket for your treatment and other damages, we believe the driver whose negligence caused your accident should be responsible.
To learn how we may be able to help you build a negligence case against the driver who caused your rollover accident in Southern California, contact Pintas & Mullins Law Firm today. We handle these cases at no up-front costs to our clients.

You May Recover a Settlement or Award Based on Your Accident-Related Losses
You should not be left holding the bill after another motorist causes you to roll your vehicle and suffer injuries. To hold the negligent driver responsible, we may be able to file an insurance claim and reach a settlement or take a strong argument to court and recover an award. A settlement or award may cover the expenses you incurred and the losses you suffered.
Some examples of potentially recoverable losses may include:
- Medical treatment and care costs
- Money for missed paychecks and benefits
- Diminished ability to work and earn a living
- Property damages including to your vehicle
- Rental car expenses
- Out-of-pocket expenses
You may also be able to recover an award for your physical pain and suffering and emotional losses, as well. We can help you put a possible value on these noneconomic damages based on the severity of your injuries, the type of injuries you suffered, and other factors.
We can also pursue wrongful death awards for clients who lost a family member in an accident if they qualify to take legal action.
Time Limits on Legal Action After a Los Angeles Car Accident
Per California Code of Civil Procedure Section § 335.1, there is a two-year time limit on filing a car accident lawsuit in Los Angeles. There are exceptions to this rule, but they are rare. If we cannot reach a fair settlement and recover compensation for you based on an insurance claim, we will need to file a lawsuit in your case before this deadline arrives.
