Generally, a rollover accident refers to any instance of tipping over or rolling over, where your vehicle may:
According to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, rollover car accidents accounted for 28 percent of all passenger vehicle occupant deaths in 2019. This startling fact means that rollovers are one of the most lethal types of car accidents, despite their relatively rare frequency when compared to other types like read-end collisions.
There are many reasons why car accidents happen in general, but rollover accidents tend to have a few preceding factors or incidents in common. Some of those include:
According to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, most rollovers in 2019 (74 percent) were associated with a pre-rollover impact, which positions “tripping” as one of the most lethal causes of rollovers. But that still leaves 26 percent of accidents that occured without any pre-rollover impact, so other causes should not be regarded lightly.
Assigning liability in a rollover accident can be a complicated affair. For example, the circumstances will depend on whether you were driving or just a passenger, the conditions of the roadway, and if it was a single or multi-vehicle accident. Even if you receive a traffic citation for the accident, you may not be ultimately liable as more facts are uncovered.
Ultimately, determining liability will depend on the extent of any injuries and whether there was negligent behavior involved. Depending on the specific facts of your rollover accident, there are many parties who may be held liable, including:
Again, determining liability can be a complex matter, so it’s best to work with a qualified rollover accident attorney who can help uncover others’ negligence and fight for the compensation you may be owed.
In many instances, rollover accidents can occur through no fault of your own. But that doesn’t change the fact that your life may have been irrevocably changed due to injury, a diminished ability to work, or even death. When that’s the case, it’s important to work with a legal team that has the experience and resources to pursue justice to the fullest extent.
