Dangers of Rollover Accidents
Any car accident has the potential to be devastating, depending on how many vehicles are involved and the damage that is caused to individual vehicles. Some types of accidents are intrinsically more likely to result in injuries, however, such as head-on collisions and rollover accidents. Rollover accidents are among the more dangerous types of car accidents, as they involve the vehicle rolling onto its roof one or more times. The resulting injuries can vary greatly, and far too often, are life-threatening.
Common Rollover Accident Injuries
The injuries suffered by a vehicle’s occupants in rollover accidents can vary depending on individual circumstances, but in general, when a vehicle rolls over on itself, victims may suffer injury due to any of the following hazards:
- Roof collapse
- Trauma from force
- Flying debris
- Seatbelt pressure
- Airbag deployment
- Broken glass
These dangers are all too common in rollover accidents, and they can cause serious injuries for those who are involved. Frequently, these injuries also necessitate expensive medical treatment. However, because some rollover accidents are the result of negligence on the part of other drivers or vehicle manufacturers, many individuals are eligible for compensation from the party responsible for their accident.
Far too often, individuals are forced to suffer the consequences of devastating accidents because of another party’s mistakes.
