What Should I Do If I Am Injured in a Nashville Rollover Accident?
Rollover accidents are often the result of driver negligence. These accidents can be incredibly dangerous, as they can result in drivers and passengers being ejected from vehicles.
They can also result in a victim being trapped while emergency workers attempt to extract him or her from a badly damaged vehicle. Rollover accidents can result in spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) or wrongful death.
