What Are the Common Causes of Rollover Accidents?
Rollover accidents occur when the inertia of a vehicle overcomes gravity and friction, causing it to roll onto its side. Vehicles with high centers of gravity and narrow track widths, such as SUVs and large passenger vans, are especially susceptible to this type of accident since their build is conducive to destabilization in fast turns and sharp changes of direction.
Using good judgement and applying safe and cautious driving techniques can help drivers avoid rollover accidents. However, there are several factors beyond a driver’s control that can cause a rollover. Some of the most common causes include:
- Tire Blowouts
- Damage Roadways
- High Speed Crashes
- Swerving to Avoid Road Hazards
- Dangerously Sharp Turns
The right attorney can investigate the circumstances surrounding your crash to determine what caused the rollover and who is ultimately at fault. For more information about rollover accidents and how to minimize rollover risk, click here.
Establishing Liability in a Rollover Accident Case
In a rollover accident case, like most other accident cases, you must be able to prove the negligence of the liable party in very distinct ways. You must prove the liable party breached its duty of care to you. In a rollover case, this would include things like reckless driving, selling you a defective tire, or failure to keep roads reasonably safe. You must also prove that it was that breach of trust that directly contributed to the rollover. Lastly, you must prove that your injuries resulted from the rollover.
