Rollover accidents are among the most dangerous

Any type of motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious injury, death and property damage. However, some types, such as rollover accidents, are more dangerous than others.

A rollover accident is exactly what it sounds like. This happens when a vehicle loses contact with the roadway and begins to roll.

There are many causes of rollover accidents, including but not limited to the following:

  • Vehicle type: High profile vehicles, such as commercial trucks, are more likely to rollover than those with a lower center of gravity.
  • Speed: The faster a vehicle is traveling, the more likely it is that a rollover will occur, such as if the driver needs to make an instant correction.
  • Driving under the influence: With more than 50 percent of rollover accidents involving alcohol, it's critical to never get behind the wheel after you've been drinking.
  • Location: A rollover accident can happen on any roadway, but these are more common in rural areas where roads are typically undivided.
  • Sharp curve: When driving into a sharp curve, it's critical to follow the speed limit and use common sense to maintain full control of your vehicle. If you take the curve too fast, a rollover is more likely.

There are times when a rollover accident involves one car. There are also times when a vehicle rolls over and strikes at least one other vehicle, pedestrian or piece of property while doing so.

If you're injured in a rollover accident, such as one caused by a trucker, call for immediate help. After receiving treatment and filing an insurance claim, you can take steps to protect your legal rights and seek compensation for your injuries and other damages.
