One of the most dangerous types of accidents is the rollover. They don’t happen spontaneously but are usually the result of another incident. This can include reckless driving, road hazards and collisions that spiral further out of control. Rollovers have high fatality rates and cause significant injury as well as property damage. Hinkle Law Offices can help if you or a loved one has been involved in a rollover.
How Do Rollovers Happen?
A minor “fender bender” can occur at low speeds and still cause damage such as whiplash to the car’s occupants. Rollovers, however, are more common for taller vehicles such as SUVs or large vans. Several different factors can cause rollovers; the most common are:
- Excessive speed
Taking a corner too quickly can cause the vehicle’s center of gravity to shift and put it into a rollover collision. Overcorrecting on a drift or jerking the wheel to avoid a road hazard such as a rock or a pot hole can also cause the vehicle to go out of control. And high speed collisions cause tall vehicles to shift their gravity, sending them into rollover accidents.
If You’ve Been Involved
