Revealing The bad and The Ugly facts Concerning Rollover Collisions
According to The National Highway Safety Administration, “Rollover crashes still comprise a disproportionately large number of highway fatalities.” In fact, in 2010 the NHTSA revealed that more than 10,000 people die yearly from rollover crashes.
Although rollover crashes account for only three percent of vehicles in crashes, they lead to approximately one-third of all occupant deaths. (Source: NHTSA)
In a study of 328 rollover crashes, 68 percent of which were single vehicle crashes, more than half of the rollover occupants had their seat belts on.
About 30 percent of the cases involved a driver under the influence of alcohol
Approximately 40 percent of the rollover occupants were ejected, with 87 percent of them not wearing their seatbelt
The majority, or 60% of the ejected occupants exited through the side windows
Many occupants were injured by a crushed roof
What Do We Think As Well As Realize:
It’s basic human nature as the driver to think that you may have caused the rollover accident somehow, or you might even blame the other vehicle operator because as human beings we are hard wired to want to know who is right and who is wrong in the court of public opinion and more importantly in the eyes of the law. Naturally the investigating officer defaults to the most obvious cause of an accident for the police report more times than not.
Obviously a vehicle rollover occurs when a car, SUV, truck or even a motorcycle flips over on its side and rolls on the ground, at times rolling over multiple times. If you or a loved one have experienced a rollover accident, and you are not the negligent party you may be eligible for compensation.
High Center of Gravity And Roll Over Crashes
On the other hand faulty vehicle construction and design may be at fault which would require a specific roll over type investigation which can determine that there was an entire different reason the roll-over accident occurred.
Sport utility vehicles and especially lifted trucks have a higher center of gravity which increases rollover chances. These chances may even increase when these vehicles are occupied with passengers and/or a cargo payload.
When there are no rollover bars or faulty manufacturer roof reinforcement the roof can crush inward obviously endangering the occupants riding in the vehicle.
