How Can a Lawyer Help Me?
When you have been injured in a rollover car accident, you need someone in your corner who will fight relentlessly for you to get you the compensation that you deserve. Hiring an attorney is very important because there are several things that they can help you with.
One of the biggest things that a rollover accident lawyer in Germantown can help you with is gathering evidence to prove your case. Your lawyer will know what type of evidence is the most helpful in proving your case. Some of the most helpful evidence in a rollover accident case is:
- Cell phone records, if the other driver was distracted
- Video camera or CCTV footage from nearby cameras
- Photographs of the accident scene
- Vehicle data to determine speed
- Witness statements
Your rollover accident attorney in Germantown will know how to frame the evidence that they can find to make your case as strong as possible.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
Another great benefit of having an attorney on your side is that they can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf. This is very helpful because the other driver will likely be represented by lawyers that were hired by their insurance company.
Insurance lawyers tend to be very skilled and very expensive. Going against them alone is a good way to almost guarantee that you will receive little to no compensation for the accident. However, a skilled Germantown rollover accident lawyer will know all of their methods and can help get you the settlement that you deserve.
A Germantown rollover accident attorney can provide you with excellent legal advice. The law is complicated. No person could be expected to understand or know all of it, which is why there are lawyers who dedicate their entire careers to understanding certain areas of law and how best to help their clients.
Your lawyer will ensure that you do not make any mistakes that could compromise the strength of your case.

How Rollover Accidents Are Caused
Several factors can cause rollover accidents. According to a study performed by the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine, there are a few factors that are most likely to cause rollover accidents. The vast majority of rollover accidents are caused by speeding, mostly because of drivers taking curves at too high a speed.
This means that if you were injured by another driver causing a rollover accident, you have a good case. If the other driver was speeding, in violation of the law, it will be easier for you to show that they were negligent, while it will be difficult for them to show that they were not.
Other common causes of rollover accidents are also a result of negligence, such as driving with known bad brakes, not adjusting speed to vehicles up ahead, driving on tires with worn tread, or driving too fast for the conditions of the road. Your rollover accident lawyers in Germantown will be able to figure out what the best strategy for proving your case is.

What if I Was Partially at Fault?
If you were partially at fault for the accident, you can still recover some damages. Tennessee law has a rule called comparative negligence. The way that comparative negligence works is that you can recover some damages from the other party unless you were mostly responsible for the accident.
If you were 50% or less responsible for the accident, you can recover damages from the party that was mostly at fault. However, your damages will be reduced by the amount that you were at fault. For example, if you are found to be 30% at fault for the accident, and you are awarded $1,000,000 in damages, you will receive $700,000.
The percentage at fault that you are found will be determined by a jury, and it is a subjective standard. This means that your Germantown rollover accident lawyer can present your case in a very favorable light to reduce the amount that you are found at fault.

Statute of Limitations in Personal Injury Cases
Under Tennessee law, there is a set amount of time in which you can bring a lawsuit for personal injuries. You must bring your personal injury lawsuit within one year of the discovery of your injuries.
You can think of this like a timer. The timer is set to go off after one year. However, the timer does not start until you notice, or should have noticed, that you are injured.
If you are immediately aware of your injuries, this means that the lawsuit must be brought within one year of the accident. However, if you have injuries that are not readily apparent and only begin to cause problems later on, your lawsuit must be brought within one year of the day that you discover the injury. Your Germantown rollover accident lawyer will help you determine the statute of limitations for your accident.
