Top 3 Causes of Rollover Accidents

Posted on in Car Accident

fort-collins-car-accident-lawyer.jpgRollover accidents can be some of the most deadly, and the most terrifying to live through. A rollover accident is not an overly common event. It takes significant force or a steep enough hill to send a car rolling. These accidents tend to involve major carelessness or even recklessness on the part of the at-fault driver. Rollover accidents can be devastating for everyone involved, including the loved ones of those inside the car. If you were injured in a rollover accident caused by an unsafe driver, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. As rollovers often involve severe injuries that will require ongoing care, it is important that you let a lawyer help you calculate the amount you deserve before you consider an insurance company’s offer. 

What Careless or Reckless Behaviors Cause Rollover Accidents?

There are some environmental factors that play into the likelihood of rollover accidents. For example, we have a lot of steep hills here in Colorado that can turn a simple run-off-the-road accident into a rollover. But the people who bear the responsibility for rollover crashes are those who cause them. Some dangerous actions that can cause rollovers include:

  • Excessive speeding - Extreme speeds can create the force necessary to tip a car and cause it to roll. Even on a perfectly flat road, a collision at the right angle can flip a vehicle. 

  • Disregarding danger - When you are driving on a twisting mountain road with a steep hill on one side and a narrow shoulder, the stakes are much higher than if you are traveling down a normal highway with flat land on both sides. Drivers should use a much greater degree of caution on dangerous roads. Even a light bump can send a car off the road, where rolling down the hill is a huge risk. 

  • Reckless maneuvers - Aggressive or impatient drivers may make some risky maneuvers, like taking a turn way too fast or attempting to swerve in and out of traffic before losing control, often taking others with them. 

If a careless or reckless driver caused a rollover accident that left you injured, a lawyer can help you pursue compensation.
