A rollover car wreck is one of the most dangerous types of accidents. As a result, motorists involved in a rollover crash should seek a personal injury attorney to guide their claim and protect their rights.
How Do Rollover Accidents Happen?
A rollover occurs whenever the vehicle flips and lands on its roof or tips over on one of its sides. This can happen for many reasons, including:
- Driving too fast
- Distracted drivers
- Tired drivers
- Tire problems such as flat or bald tire
Types of Rollover Accidents
Two types of rollover accidents exist.
- Tripped rollover. In this type of rollover, a vehicle slides off a roadway until the tires reach an object. The force at the tires causes the vehicle to flip.
- Untripped rollover. An untripped rollover occurs when no object is involved to cause the tripping to occur. In this case, the speed and force of the impact can cause the vehicle to flip.
Negligence in Rollover Accidents
In rollover car accidents, police officers must determine the cause of the accident to pinpoint negligence. They use evidence at the scene, witness statements, and accident details to determine this. Insurance companies or drivers can refute this with further proof.
