What is a Rollover Accidents?

A rollover accident occurs when a vehicle tips on its side or roof during a crash. Depending on the force of the impact, the vehicle could roll just once, or it might roll multiple times before it finally comes to a complete stop.

Rollover accidents sometimes involve multiple vehicles, but they most commonly occur in single-car accidents. Because of the nature of the accident, they often result in severe injuries.

Common Causes of Rollover Accidents

There are multiple reasons a vehicle may roll over, including:

  • Speeding: Taking a turn too fast or speeding around a curve can cause your tires to lose their grip on the road, causing your vehicle to roll over.
  • Tripping: Tripping is a very common cause of rollover accidents. Tripping is when your car’s tire hits something, like a curb or ditch. When this happens, it shifts the vehicle’s weight to one side, and sometimes the car will roll over before regaining its balance.
  • Crashing: If the force of impact is strong enough in a motor vehicle accident, it can tip your car.
  • Inclement Weather: Rain, snow, or ice-covered roads are slippery, so it’ll be much easier to lose control of and roll your car.
