Information about Car and Truck Rollovers from Abel Law Firm

An upturned car with its wheels in the air and sunroof in the mud can be a shocking sight. The frequency and severity of car and truck rollovers make them a serious problem in the automotive industry. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rollover crashes account for 35 percent of all passenger vehicle fatalities; more than 10,000 people a year are killed in these accidents.

If you or someone you know has suffered damages because their car rolled over in an accident, the case should be investigated to determine liability.

Causes of Car and Truck Rollovers

The most common causes of rollovers include:

  • Abrupt turning at high speeds
  • An accident in which a vehicle is “T-boned” or hit on the side
  • The driver’s losing control of the vehicle, causing it to swerve into a curb or other obstacle at high speeds

Most of these accidents can be prevented by caution and adherence to traffic laws. Unfortunately, motorists do not always fully appreciate the dangers of unsafe driving.

Vehicle Types

Although a rollover can occur in any vehicle, some makes and models are more susceptible to rollovers than others. Vehicles with a high center of gravity and narrow tire track, such as early model SUVs, are more likely to rollover in the event of an accident. In some cases, a vehicle manufacturer can be liable for rollover accidents if they failed to design a reasonable safe car or truck.
