There are various kinds of car accidents that can occur on the road, but one of the most dangerous types of vehicular crashes are rollover accidents. Rollovers are caused when a car, bus, or truck turns over onto its side or roof. While rollovers occur in only 3% of serious crashes, they also comprise almost 30% of people killed in car crashes.
According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Association, driver error plays a role in rollover accidents. While sometimes weather conditions, like icy roads, can contribute to rollovers, many crashes have proved the be the fault of the driver.
Common causes of rollovers include:
In order to avoid rollovers, it’s recommended that drivers don’t overcompensate in emergency situations. When there’s an emergency that requires fast action, rollovers can be caused when drivers panic and slam on the brakes or veer off course. By staying calm and safely steering through the emergency, you can avoid getting into an accident that causes your car to flip on its side or roof.
During a rollover accident, five parts of your body typically suffer the most: your head and neck, thorax, abdomen, upper limbs, and lower limbs.
Some of the most common injuries include:
These injuries can be caused by being tossed within your car, being thrown out of your car, coming into contact with broken glass or metal, or slamming into another car or obstacle. Many rollover accident injuries are catastrophic and require extensive medical treatment, which can add up to expensive bills. A personal injury lawyer can seek compensation in your claim.
