Causes of Automobile Rollover Accidents
Many different factors and conditions can result in a rollover accident. While some rollover accidents can be caused by driver negligence, such as overly-aggressive driving, many rollover accidents are the result of vehicle defects, design flaws or even poor road conditions. In many cases, blame can be placed on another motorist’s negligent behavior, such as driving under the influence, driving distracted by using a cell phone, eating, or falling asleep at the wheel. Our attorneys and professional investigators thoroughly analyze the accident, the vehicle and all factors surrounding the accident. Our thorough investigation often reveals manufacturing defects, engineering defects, design defects and other defects that may have caused vehicle instability or safety protection devices to fail, such as:
- Too high center of gravity, causing vehicle instability
- Lateral force rollovers
- Ramp rollovers
- Side slope rollovers
- Sideways Skid Rollovers
- Dangerous Roads
- Poor roof structure, causing the roof to crush in the rollover
- Defective tires, which caused the SUV to roll over
- Defective door latches, which caused the doors to open resulting in ejection
Some of the most common injuries we see in rollover accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
