Causes of Rollover Accidents

Sometimes, a driver can’t control the circumstances that lead to an accident. Road or highway defects or severe weather events can cause accidents leading to severe injury. But in many instances, accidents are preventable and happen because of someone’s negligent behavior.

Rollover accidents occur when a vehicle overturns and rolls. These accidents can be incredibly dangerous because a vehicle can roll into oncoming traffic or off of a road.

There are many events and actions that can cause a rollover accident:

  • Car mechanical errors
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • A driver violating traffic laws
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driver fatigue
  • Reckless driving
  • Adverse weather conditions

Injuries from Rollover Accidents

You can sustain any number of mild to serious injuries in a rollover accident. The impact and velocity of the crash can cause incredible damage. Some injuries caused by rollover accidents include:

  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck and spinal injuries, including paralysis
  • Hearing and vision impairment or loss
  • Broken or severed limbs
  • Burns
  • Muscle strains
  • Organ damage
  • Cuts
  • Anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Most of these injuries will require immediate medical attention, and some may require extended hospital stays. Some injuries require months or years of follow-up medical treatment and physical rehabilitation. Other injuries may require long-term therapy. All of this can be exorbitant in cost. Since you’re faced with these costs through no fault of your own, you deserve to be reimbursed and compensated so that you do not have to bear the financial burden of someone else’s error.
