Rollover Accident Litigation Lawyers In Elbert Colorado

Elbert is an unincorporated community and the location of a U.S. Post Office in Elbert County, Colorado, United States. The community is named for a past Colorado territorial governor and state Supreme Court Justice Samuel Hitt Elbert. The Elbert Post Office has the ZIP Code 80106. Elbert was a bustling center until May 31, 1935, when Kiowa Creek, a stream next to the community, flooded suddenly and washed away half of the community. It now is the location of only a few stores, churches, and houses. The majority of Elbert residents are involved in the agriculture sector. On June 15, 2009 at 1:46 pm, a large three quarter mile-wide, EF2 tornado touched down in rural fields west of the town. The tornado came within 2 miles of the town at its closest. The tornado destroyed a barn at a farm and damaged an airplane hangar. During the summer, Elbert is much busier due to a nearby Boy Scout Camp, Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch, which has 10,000 visitors annually. Additionally, 2.8 miles south of Elbert lies the J-CC Ranch Camp, a Jewish camp owned by the Denver Jewish Community Center. Elbert lies along Elbert Road, which connects the town of Kiowa to U.S. Route 24. The largest nearby city is Elizabeth, which is about 15 minutes' drive away.

What is rollover accident litigation?

A rollover is a type of vehicle accident, where a vehicle turns over on its side or roof. Such accidents have a tendency to badly injure the occupants of the vehicle, car, bus or truck involved and those around the vehicle. While many auto accidents occur because of human error, many also can be caused or worsened by defective products or inadequate safety mechanisms. Among these problems are vehicles that are prone to rollovers, especially increasingly popular sport utility vehicles, or SUVs. A number of vehicles have also been found to have roofs that cannot withstand rollover accidents, with drivers and passengers injured and killed. People who are injured in rollover accidents may be compensated for their injury, lost income, and pain and suffering.
