Rollover Accidents Can Lead to Serious Injuries and Death
Rollover accidents may occur when a vehicle loses stability and rolls onto its side or roof. These may occur as a result of:
- A collision with another car
- Hitting another hazard
- Being crowded off the road or running off the road for another reason
- Making a sudden move to avoid a collision or another hazard
The I nsurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports that in 2018, there were more than 6,500 fatalities nationwide in rollover accidents. This included:
- 72 percent with a pre-rollover collision
- 28 percent without any pre-rollover impact
As you can likely imagine, proving fault can be especially difficult in accidents without a pre-rollover impact. In some cases, the at-fault driver who caused you to run off the road may have left the scene, or there may be hurdles we must clear to prove liability. However, we are not intimidated by tough cases.
If you or a member of your family suffered injuries in a rollover accident in the Tampa Bay area, we may be able to build a case to hold the at-fault driver responsible.

- Current and future medical expenses and care costs

The Statute of Limitations on Your Case
We recommend calling Distasio Law Firm as soon as your injuries allow following your Tampa rollover accident. Florida imposes strict deadlines on how long you have to file a civil lawsuit following an accident.
Per Florida Statute 95.11, victims of negligence accidents generally have up to 48 months to file a personal injury lawsuit. For wrongful death lawsuits, that limit is typically just 24 months.
If this time limit expires before you take legal action, it could prevent you from recovering compensation for your damages in a lawsuit.
We can discuss what specific legal deadlines pertain to your case when you call Distasio Law Firm for a free case evaluation.
