Eureka MO rollover car accident and potential personal injury impacts
On the afternoon of Monday , June 13, Pamela Bradshaw of High Ridge MO and her passenger, Joshua Rodgers of Florissant MO were rear-ended by another driver near the intersection of Route PP and Shady Lane. The impact caused her vehicle to be thrown into the ditch off the right side of the roadway into a rollover crash. Even a simple car accident can be devastating, but rollover car accidents can be particularly catastrophic for the occupants of the vehicle in the crash and subsequent vehicles in the accident as they have a greater tendency to cause secondary accidents.
As a personal injury attorney in Jefferson County Missouri, this type of crash is sadly quite common. It is important early on to collect evidence of the crash from the scene. If you are in a car accident – or other motor vehicle accident, you could potentially protect yourself with the following:
- Take photographs of the accident and time stamped photographs whenever possible,
- Gather names and information from bystanders and eyewitnesses of the vehicle accident
- Gather statements from anyone who saw the motor vehicle accident take place
- Consider potentially having expert accident reconstruction experts assist in recreating how the accident happened.
Insurance companies are aggressive in defending claims where significant injuries to victims of a crash could mean they owe big money in compensation. Don’t be left to be re-injured by the insurance company not helping you take your health and livelihood back after being injured.
At Jett Accident & Injury Lawyers, we know that it is critical to an injury case to be handled correctly from the outset – with timeliness and expertise. We know this because we have fought hard to get results on cases very similar to this one in the past. In multiple rear-end collision cases in the past we have recovered upwards of $500,000.00 for individual clients as a result of the negligence of other drivers. In all of those cases insurance companies who were on the hook for that money aggressively defended themselves, and ultimately realized they were stuck and had no choice but to pay because the injured party prepared, and equipped themselves with our firm to make sure they could get the care they needed to heal and recover what they were due after the healing process.
