Who Is At-Fault for a Rollover Accident?
If another party caused your rollover accident in Delaware, they are legally liable for it and financially responsible for your accident-related expenses. That is why it is so important to determine who is at fault for a rollover accident. Our firm can investigate what happened and identify the responsible party.
Another driver may cause your rollover accident with their negligent driving. You may react to a negligent driver by swerving, which can cause your car to roll over. Common types of negligent driving that can cause a rollover include speeding, erratic driving, aggressive driving, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Municipalities can also cause rollover accidents through negligent road maintenance. You may swerve to avoid a hazard in the road and roll your car over. In this case, the state, county, city, or town may be responsible for your accident. Municipal negligence may include failure to remove debris from the road, fix potholes, or properly mark construction zones.

How Much Is My Delaware Rollover Accident Case Worth?
Every accident is different. Our lawyers can document your losses and estimate how much your rollover accident case is worth. You may be entitled to these damages:
Economic Losses in a Rollover Accident Case
Economic damages compensate you for tangible losses caused by the rollover accident. Our lawyers can use your medical bills and records, expert medical testimony, past wage statements and tax records, and vehicle repair or replacement receipts to estimate your economic losses. You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Property damage
Non-economic Losses in a Rollover Accident Case
Non-economic damages compensate you for intangible losses such as pain and suffering. It may seem impossible to put a price tag on trauma, but a lawyer who has handled cases like yours can estimate how much your non-economic damages are worth. You may be entitled to compensation if you:
- Suffer from chronic pain
- Endured multiple surgeries or a long recovery period
- Became permanently disabled or disfigured
- Developed a mental health condition such as PTSD, anxiety, or depression
- Lost the ability to participate in hobbies or activities you once enjoyed
- Experience a reduced quality of life
Wrongful Death Losses in a Rollover Accident Case
No amount of money can ever replace your loved one. However, seeking financial compensation allows you to hold the at-fault party accountable for their actions and may give you financial security in a difficult time. Del Code tit.10 § 3724 allows surviving family members to recover:
- Loss of financial support, including benefits, wages, tips, salary, or other income
- Loss of parental, marital, and household services
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Mental anguish experienced by the surviving spouse and children, by the parents of the deceased if there is no surviving spouse or children, or by the siblings if there are no other surviving relatives

A Lawyer From Our Firm Can Help You After a Rollover Accident in Delaware
Our lawyers can help you in many ways after a rollover accident. We can:
Investigate Your Rollover Accident
The police and insurance companies will investigate your rollover accident, but our lawyer serving Delaware can independently investigate what happened, looking at the accident from your perspective. We may take pictures of the scene, interview eyewitnesses, gather cell phone records, collect toxicology reports, and more.
Recommend a Medical Provider
Prompt medical treatment is critical to your health, but it is also critical to your case. Documenting your injuries shortly after the accident links them to the accident. If you do not have a regular medical provider, we can recommend one to you.
Handle All Insurance Matters
Our lawyer can communicate with the insurance companies on your behalf. We can file a claim for you, submit supporting documents, and negotiate an out-of-court settlement.
File a Lawsuit
We can file a lawsuit against the responsible party and represent you in court.
Legal Deadlines in a Delaware Rollover Accident Case
The state of Delaware limits how much time you have to seek damages from the party responsible for your rollover accident. If you wait too long, you forfeit the right to sue the at-fault party, even if your case is strong.
- Del. Code tit. 10 § 8119 establishes a general two-year statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits.
- Del. Code Ann. tit. 10, § 8107 establishes a general one-year statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits.
Our lawyers serving Delaware will evaluate your case and determine how much time you have to take legal action.
