Rollover car accidents are among the deadliest of all accidents. These accidents account for more than 10,000 deaths in the US each year. Survivors are often left dealing with serious physical injuries as well as emotional and psychological trauma.
First, we need you to understand that vehicle crashes are common. For the latest reporting year in Pennsylvania, there were over 128,000 crashes. Out of those, more than 80,000 people were injured.
Rollover crashes are caused by a variety of reasons. In many cases, they are driver caused and include:
In other cases, the negligence of another driver can cause a rollover crash. An impaired, distracted, or speeding driver could crash into you and cause your vehicle to roll over.
We often discuss vehicle crash injuries, but in a rollover, the situation is often much more severe. A rollover crash victim is much more likely to suffer from a combination of any of the following injuries:
These crashes are often violent and involve the vehicle rolling multiple times. Rollovers are the most common cause of crash victims being ejected from vehicles due to the sheer force of the incident.
