A vehicle rollover, where a vehicle flips over onto its side or roof, is one of the most dangerous types of automobile accidents. Although they account for only three percent of all serious accidents on the road, rollovers constitute thirty percent of all deaths of passenger vehicle occupants.
Ninety percent of rollover accidents involve a single vehicle, and the majority of rollovers occur when the vehicle leaves the road. Vehicle speed, icy or wet roads, potholes, ditches, and debris on the road can cause a vehicle to fishtail. A driver may overcompensate with the steering wheel causing the vehicle to veer off the road, and consequently roll over.
Under the correct circumstances, any vehicle can roll over; however, cars are less susceptible than vehicles with a higher profile such as pickups, vans, and SUVs. A vehicle’s center of gravity shifts to one side when it rounds a curve, thus taking a turn too quickly can easily cause an SUV to roll over. Typically, however, a rollover is not caused by a steering maneuver, but rather when the vehicle “trips” on something, such as a curb, a ditch, or a soft roadside shoulder.
Many drivers purchase SUVs believing they will be safer in a crash, when in reality they are putting themselves at a greater risk of a rollover crash. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are over 11,000 fatal rollover accidents every year accounting for more than half of all single-vehicle crash deaths.
As compared to other types of vehicle crashes, being involved in a rollover increases your risk of serious injury by 36 percent. When SUVs roll over, their roofs cave in causing serious injuries, sometimes killing the occupants. Rollovers can cause gas leaks, which lead to fires, often with occupants still trapped inside the vehicle. If victims do survive the crash, they can suffer serious injuries, including:
Rollover accidents are often the result of either a negligent automobile manufacturer or another person’s negligence. They can be devastating, leaving you with traumatic injuries, scarring, and pain and suffering, resulting in costly medical bills and lost time from work. Unfortunately, insurance companies are not always cooperative when filing claims. They may unfairly deny or delay claims to injured rollover accident victims or request unnecessary testing or paperwork.
