Rollover Accidents

Probably one of the most dangerous accidents you could be in is when your car spins out of a control and you find yourself upside down as the car rolls over. You’re pinned to your seat and with all the weight on top of you, it’s just a matter of time before it all comes crashing down.

Different Types of Rollover Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rollover crashes account for 33 percent of all passenger vehicle fatalities. More than 10,000 people are killed each year in a rollover accident. And those who died, the majority of them were not wearing a seat belt.

There are two ways a rollover crash can occur: tripped or un-tripped. A tripped rollover is when your vehicle leaves the roadway or slides sideways. It then either digs its tires into the soft soil or strike an object like a guardrail. This causes a high tripping force to the tires which causes the rollover.

An un-tripped rollover is less common, only occurring less than 5 percent of the time. Instead of an object causing the tripping mechanism, a high speed maneuver, such as swerving right without slowing down, can cause the tipping.

Causes of Rollover Car Crashes

There are many factors that cause a rollover car crash. But There are some common causes to these accidents, such as:

  • Vehicle Type — The talller and thinner a vehicle is, such as a SUV or a van, the more likely a rollover accident will occur
  • Speed — Nearly three-fourths of fatal rollovers too place in an area where the speed limit was 55 mph or higher
  • Alcohol — Nearly half of the fatal crashes involve drinking and driving
  • Road Location — the more rural the area, the more like there will be a crash
  • Driver Behavior — such as impaired driving, speeding, distracted driving or drowsy driving
  • Auto Product Liability — there is an issue with your vehicle, such as a tire defect or design flaw

    I had a complex medical malpractice case and I wasn’t sure if there was an liability there. I felt there was some negligent behavior on the part of some nursing home staff. This firm, through Marion Munley, took me through all the steps necessary to prove negligent behavior that might have caused death of my loved one. She was very compassionate and very detailed and patience. I think they are a terrific firm. There wasn’t anything I disliked… I would highly recommend them as a Personal Injury Law Firm.
