Were You Seriously Injured After Your Vehicle Flipped Over?
Rollover accidents usually cause significant damage to the vehicles involved and, in many cases, result in serious injuries to the people inside. While any car can flip over under the right circumstances, certain vehicles like vans, trucks, SUVs, etc. are far more likely to do so. If you were seriously injured in a rollover crash, you may be able to secure compensation to cover any medical bills or damages you may have incurred.

What Can Cause A Vehicle To Roll?
According to the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rollover crashes are among the deadliest types of crashes drivers can be involved in. Their reports show that these types of crashes account for approximately one third of all deadly crashes and claim the lives of over 10,000 people every year.
The narrower and taller a vehicle is, the likelier they are to be involved in a rollover crash. Federal reports show that some of the most influential factors include:
- Routine Driving Maneuvers: The NHTSA reports that more than 90 percent of fatal rollover crashes occurred while the driver was performing a basic driving maneuver like making a turn or going in a straight line, which may suggest that negligent driver behaviors like speeding or not paying attention to the road could be a key factor.
- Driving Under the Influence: The driver in almost half of all deadly rollover accidents was impaired in some way, though not all had a BAC above the legal limit.
- Speeding: In some cases, the driver of the vehicle that rolled was going the speed limit – almost three quarters of these accidents occurred on roads where the posted speed limit was 55 miles per hour or above. However, about 40 percent of rollover crashes occurred when the driver was excessively speeding.
