What Is A Rollover Accident?

A rollover accident occurs when a vehicle tips over to its side or completely overturns. This type of a crash can be extremely dangerous because it often results in catastrophic or fatal injuries.

Even victims who survive Riverside rollover accidents suffer major injuries such as bone fractures, neck injuries, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries that result in permanent physical disabilities.

These types of injuries can affect not only the lives of the injured victims, but also their family members.

Rollover Crash Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rollover crashes account for about a third of all passenger fatalities. In fact, there are over 280,000 rollovers resulting in approximately 10,000 traffic deaths each year in the United States.

You can certainly reduce your chances of being fatally injured in a rollover by wearing a seatbelt. Passengers who are properly buckled are 75 percent less likely to sustain fatal injuries in a rollover.

Rollovers Involving Vehicle Defects

In addition to negligent drivers, rollover accidents are commonly caused by auto defects as well. Rollover crashes could be caused by:

  • Tire defects
  • Brake problems
  • Poor vehicle design
  • Steering failure
  • Vehicle stalling issues

When safety features fail during a rollover crash, serious injuries can occur. For example, if an airbag fails to deploy in a violent rollover crash, the vehicle’s occupants will not be protected and are likely to suffer major traumatic injuries. If a seat belt fails, the vehicle’s occupants could get partially or fully ejected. If a seat belt collapses during a rollover collision, serious or catastrophic injuries could occur.

Rollover Prevention

There are a number of ways in which you can reduce your chances of being injured or killed in a Riverside rollover accident.

  • Mind your speed. In addition to obeying the speed limit, it is advisable to slow down while making turns and in wet conditions. Speed could cause drivers to lost control of their vehicles.
  • Stay focused. A sudden jerk of the wheel can cause your vehicle to tip over. Distracted drivers sometimes fail to notice changes in traffic and roadway conditions that could have been avoided. If a distracted driver looks up at the last moment, he or she may try to jerk the wheel, resulting in a rollover.
  • Stay sober and alert. Drowsy and intoxicated drivers are more likely to let their vehicles drift off the roadway. Many rollover accidents occur after a car leaves the roadway when the driver attempts to turn back into traffic.
  • Choose the right vehicle. Top-heavy vehicles are more likely to tip over in an accident. This is why so many rollovers involve large SUVs, passenger vans, minivans and pickups. Many SUVs have been redesigned to make them wider and lower to the ground, but they are still more likely to roll during an accident than smaller passenger cars.
  • Avoid debris. Some rollovers result from debris on the roadway. It is dangerous to strike large debris or to jerk your wheel to avoid debris. Try to make slow, measured turns to avoid hazardous conditions and report roadway debris to the authorities.
  • Wear a seatbelt. During a rollover, the momentum of the occupants will continue. Those who are not secured inside the vehicle can get partially or completely ejected. Ejection injuries are often catastrophic or fatal because the victim undergoes trauma during the initial crash, when crashing into the window and when striking the ground.
  • Inspect your vehicle. Having properly inflated tires and well maintained brakes will reduce your chances of getting involved in a rollover crash.
  • Obey traffic signs. Rollovers involving multiple vehicles often result from broadside collisions. If you yield the right-of-way at intersections and obey traffic control devices, you are less likely to be involved in a T-bone accident.

If You Have Been Injured In A Riverside Rollover Accident

If you have been hurt in a rollover accident, it is important that you remain calm and notify the authorities. Seek medical attention right away and gather as much information as possible from the scene of the crash.

Injured victims should consult a Riverside Rollover Car Accident Lawyer and can seek compensation from the at-fault parties for damages including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Hospitalization
  • Rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost future income
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium

Bisnar Chase Review - Natalie

I’m so impressed with this law firm. I lost my mother because of a seat defect when she was rear-ended in an auto accident and Bisnar Chase stepped up and took our case. The staff is wonderful and Brian Chase took his time explaining everything via phone with me. I’m honored to have the best of the best working on our family’s behalf, trying to get justice for my Mom, because of a negligent car company still manufacturing faulty seats. I look forward to working with this firm and am hopeful for a positive outcome. Thank you so much, Brian Chase. I know you will work your hardest on this case. God Bless you.

Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I can’t really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as well as I could have hoped.

Bisnar Chase Google Review

I had an attorney for my truck accident who wanted almost 60% of what my case was worth. Worse than that, he was willing to settle for $5,000.00 with the insurance company even though I was still treating for whiplash and back pain. I contacted Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys because a friend recommended them. My case was handled exceptionally well! I was being kept notified throughout the whole process and only when I was comfortable with the settlement figure, did my attorney Gavin Long, accept it. I felt like we were working together and I felt listened to. I would refer Bisnar Chase to anyone who wants quality over quantity!
