Common Causes of Rollover Accidents

With the popularity of Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs), the chance of a rollover accident occurring with is much greater than with other passenger vehicles. Studies have proven that a vehicle with a center of gravity lower to the ground and with a wider wheelbase lessens the risk of a rollover accident; however, this can be costly, and automakers have been slow to adjust their designs.

Some factors that can increase a drivers risk of being involved in a rollover accident include:

  • Vehicle design (high center of gravity and narrow wheel base causing the car to be top-heavy)
  • Fast speeds
  • Slick road conditions
  • Tire failure
  • Dangerous roads in Arizona
  • Tread defects
  • Poor suspension
  • Malfunctioning or inadequate brakes

Needless to say, using common sense when behind the wheel generally goes a long way to ensuring the safety of yourself, your passengers and other motorists.

Factors That Can Contribute To Roll-overs

Rollover accidents are very dangerous and usually result in serious and debilitating injuries, and even wrongful death. As with any car accident, the severity of injuries depends on the functionality of seatbelts and airbags in the vehicle.

Some common damages that are often associated with rollover accident injuries include:

  • Roof crush
  • Fuel-fed fires
  • Tire failures
  • Roof pillar failures in SUVs
  • Door latch failures

Many of these failures are caused due to the severity of an impact that a vehicle often sustains when it is rolled on it’s roof. While manufacturers continually strive to design stronger and lighter protection cells into their vehicles, sometimes the force of the crash is just too much for the vehicle to provide adequate protection to it’s occupants.
