Commentary on Rollover Accident on Elgin Avenue in Lubbock

With single vehicle wrecks like this, folks tend to jump to conclusions and assume the driver did something wrong. That's certainly likely, considering common causes of rollover accidents. But these wrecks warrant thorough investigations to make sure authorities don't overlook anything important.

For one, even common factors can involve incredibly complex legal consequences. Take alcohol, for example. That can then lead to a local bar or restaurant that illegally over-served the driver, and that establishment could then be liable under dram shop law for their role in the victim's injuries. That's not the kind of thing authorities typically look into on their own.

Similarly, there are less common factors authorities tend to overlook. Were there mechanical issues? Road hazards? Defective tires? A medical emergency? Another reckless driver that left the scene? Even if something seems unlikely, it warrants attention to make sure folks have every opportunity to get the help they need. It remains to be seen, then, if anyone is taking those steps here.
