Rollover accidents make up about 4% of all motor vehicle accidents and approximately one-third of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. A rollover accident happens when a vehicle tips over onto its side or roof. In this type of accident, the roof of the vehicle can collapse and cause catastrophic injuries such as fatal and severe head and spine injuries to its occupants.
A rollover accident is a severe one that can permanently change your life. If you or a loved one sustained severe injuries in a rollover accident, you may experience limited mobility that can keep you from working and from leading the life you once had.
It’s important to discuss your situation with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can walk you through the legal steps to recover financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, permanent disability, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Factors Behind Rollovers
Rollover crashes are complex cases that can be attributed to several factors such as:
- Excessive speed
- Driving under the influence of alcohol
- Defective road design
- Driver distraction and inattentiveness
- Improper loads (in commercial trucks)
