Rollover crashes can involve a single vehicle or multiple vehicles. SUVs, trucks, and buses are prone to rollovers because of their high center of gravity. Tripping is the most common event that causes a vehicle to roll over.
Tripping events occur when the wheels of a vehicle strike an object causing the vehicle to roll over. Tripping can be caused by a hazard in the road, hitting curbs, or running into a divider.
Rollover crashes also occur when drivers overcorrect if they run out of the road or drift into another lane of traffic. In addition, striking another vehicle at excessive speeds can result in a vehicle rolling over on its side or roof.
Driving behaviors can increase the risk of a rollover accident. For instance, distracted driving, fatigued driving, and impaired driving can increase the risk of a rollover crash.
The risk of severe injuries and wrongful death is high in rollover collisions. The sides of the vehicle and the roof crushing inward (cabin intrusion) as the vehicle rolls over crushes the occupants. Ejection from the vehicle also causes traumatic injuries.
Examples of injuries sustained in rollover accidents include:
Accident victims should seek immediate medical treatment for injuries. Delays in medical care could result in injuries worsening. Report all symptoms to your doctor to document injuries and obtain an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
The person who caused the rollover crash is responsible for the damages caused by the crash. If a defective road or dangerous road conditions caused the accident, a government entity could be liable. Manufacturers could be liable if a defective tire or car part caused your vehicle to roll over.
