Causes of Rollover Car Crashes

There are several causes of a rollover car crash. Understanding some of the behaviors that cause rollover accidents can help keep you safe.

1. Car design and structure. Taller, narrower vehicles such as vans and SUVs are more susceptible to rollover accidents because they have more gravity in their centers as compared to other types of vehicles.

2. Driving at high speed. Rollover car incidents that leave fatalities often involve vehicles that were driving at high speeds. While driving at 60 MPH is unavoidable on a freeway, it is best to be cautious of how fast you are driving next time you are on the road.

3. Distracted, impaired, and reckless driving. Studies show that rollover crashes often occur while the driver is driving straight or on a curve. Hitting a curb at high speed or veering into a lane with strong force can also cause rollover car incidents.

4. Wear a seat belt. In 2010, 69% of people who died in a rollover car accident had not been wearing seat belts.

What to Do After a Rollover Accident

Following a rollover vehicle crash, you should seek medical attention—regardless of whether or not you believe you need it. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be one of several injuries sustained in a rollover accident, and it can go unrecognized. Some of the symptoms of TBI include blurry vision, difficulty concentrating, moody behavior, and headaches. If you were recently involved in a rollover accident and hit your head, be sure to look out for these symptoms.

Once your vehicle has stopped rolling, check to see if you and your passengers have any injuries. If need be, call emergency services. Make sure you contact law enforcement to report the crash.
