Rollover Car Accidents – Dangerous Type of Accident

Rollover Car Accidents – Dangerous Type of Accident

Rollover car accidents are among the most dangerous types of accidents. As the vehicle rolls, you and your passengers are tossed around in the vehicle’s interior, being hit by loose objects, suffering the force of impact, and possibly being thrown out of the vehicle. All of this can result in severe, life-threatening injuries.

A rollover car accident is when one vehicle has overturned (tipped of flipped) at least 90 degrees onto its side. The force of impact can cause the vehicle to land on its roof, sometimes even upright after rolling more than once.
