Rollover Accidents Explained
Rollover accidents, by nature, can be some of the most catastrophic types of accidents that occur. The larger and narrower a vehicle might be, the higher the likelihood it may rollover due to a high center of gravity.
These types of accidents are responsible for 35% of all annual fatalities on U.S roadways, while approximately 85% are classified as single-vehicle accidents.
Rollovers can occur for a variety of different reasons, including speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving, or awkward, untimed swerves.
