There are many intricacies to personal injury litigation, especially when it comes to a rollover accident involving a commercial truck. For example, a layman may not know that an automotive defect could have been the cause of the rollover. In such cases, the manufacturer of the defective part can be held legally accountable. Likewise, many people do not realize that they can file a personal injury lawsuit even if they were partially responsible for the accident, as long as their responsibility was less than 50 percent.
