Rollover Car Accident Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rollover accidents account for 33% of all car accidents. Rollover accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, including defects in the automobile, but 95% of single car rollovers are “tripped,” which is when a car’s tires lose contact with the roadway.

Tripped Rollover Causes

Some reasons a car may “trip” include:

  • Soft Soil: This is when a driver veers off the road onto a curb, soft shoulder, or other non-roadway surfaces.

  • Guard Rails: If a driver gets too close to a guardrail at a high speed, they may try to veer away, resulting in partially hitting the rail and launching the car into a roll.

  • Steep Slope: Larger cars, such as SUVs, are particularly susceptible to this type of “trip.” A large car will gather momentum when heading down a steep slope, and a sudden turn can cause the car to enter a roll.

Untripped Rollovers

The remaining 5% of rollover accidents are “untripped.” Untripped rollovers are usually caused when tall, heavy vehicles swerve to avoid a collision.

Investigation of Rollover Car Accidents is Essential

No matter the original cause of the rollover, it’s possible manufacture defects could worsen the impact of the rollover. Furthermore, if your rollover accident was caused by a negligent driver, they could be held liable.

Attorneys at The Kryder Law Group, LLC will work hard to determine the exact cause of your accident and whether or not it was worsened by product malfunction or if you deserve compensation due to someone else’s poor driving.
