Vehicles that have high centers of gravity like some pickup trucks, SUVs, and vans are more susceptible to rollover accidents. Often, there is an additional contributing factor in vehicle rollover accidents, like a faulty part or defective design. Drivers maneuvering in traffic may have no idea that there is a problem with the vehicle until after the crash. Rollover accidents can happen in mere seconds and have an extremely high fatality rate.
Though there have been many advancements in vehicle design to prevent the likelihood of an accident, rollover accidents still account for a large portion of total accidents per year. Rollovers can be devastating in both single car and multi-vehicle accidents. You often hear of people being ejected from a vehicle after a rollover accident and the heartbreaking stories of those who die on impact.
When weather or dangerous driving behaviors are not to blame, the accidents can typically be traced back to an act of negligence on the part of another driver or a car, parts, or service manufacturer. Determining who is liable for the accident and taking legal action against them can make a significant difference in the lives of rollover accident victims.

Avoiding a Rollover Accident
Some rollover accidents may be out of your hands, but drivers of vehicles that are more susceptible to rollovers can decrease their likelihood by practicing caution.
- Get to know your vehicle – Understand how your car handles around curves, turning, and maneuvering in traffic. Do some research on the safety rating of new vehicles, and choose makes and models with better ratings.
- Wear your seatbelt – Encourage everyone in the vehicle to wear a seatbelt. In the event of a rollover accident, a seatbelt may be your only protection against severe injury, ejection, or death.
- Practice good judgment – Unstable vehicles should not ride with a roof cargo load. Drive more carefully in bad weather, and avoid driving while distracted, under the influence, or sleepy.
