Issues to be aware of regarding rollover accidents

What is a rollover accident or incident? A rollover is when a vehicle flips over onto its roof or side during an accident. While all cars can roll over, vehicles with high centers of gravity, such as pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUVs), are much more susceptible. Some common issues that affect rollover accident cases include:

  • SUVs. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that while many other auto accident types declined over the last decade, SUV rollovers actually rose. This is due to the high center of gravity in SUVs. Certain SUV models are even more susceptible to rollover accidents than others.
  • Defective vehicles. In some cases, your rollover accident case may also include products liability issues. Various manufacturing defects in motor vehicles can make rollovers more likely to occur. Be sure to check for any recalls as you perform routine maintenance on your car, truck, or SUV.
  • Defective tires or road hazards. The NHTSA reports that two of the leading causes of rollover accidents are road hazards and tread separation in tires. When tread separation occurs while you’re driving at highway speeds, it’s extremely difficult to keep control over your vehicle. Road hazards such as debris, rocks, potholes, construction and more also pose significant risks, as drivers often swerve to avoid them at the last minute. These hazards must be properly marked by signs to keep drivers safe.
