Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?
While any car crash can be incredibly dangerous, rollover crashes are among the most devastating of them all, both to those inside the car and to the vehicle itself. Vans, trucks, SUVs, and other vehicles with a higher center of gravity are the most likely to flip and roll in a crash, but any vehicle could roll under the right circumstances. If you were involved in a rollover accident caused by someone else’s actions, you may be able to secure the compensation you require through legal actions.

What Can Cause A Rollover Crash?
Rollover crashes are among the most deadly types of crashes that occur on the road and make up approximately one-third of all traffic-related fatalities according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Some of the most common causes of rollover accidents include:
- Driving While Intoxicated: While it is legal to drive with a BAC between 0.01 and 0.08, any amount of impairment can decrease reaction time and influence a crash. Almost half of all rollover crashes were caused by a driver impaired by alcohol or drugs.
- Speeding: The majority of all rollover crashes involved drivers traveling at high speeds, either at the speed limit or above. More than three-quarters of all rollover crashes occurred on roads with a posted speed limit of at least 55 mph.
- Basic Driving Maneuvers: The NHTSA reported that more than nine out of every 10 fatal rollover crashes occurred when the driver was performing a routine driving maneuver like making a turn or traveling in a straight line. Officials believe that this statistic indicates that the driver responsible for the crash was either speeding or not paying attention at the time of the accident.
