How Common Are Rollover Accidents in Los Angeles?
One of the main reasons for vehicles rolling over is speeding. This causes the driver to lose control of the vehicle, tipping to one side.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that rollovers are only about 2 percent of the total number of accidents. However, they comprise about 30% to 35% of all crash fatalities. The NHTSA also reports that, in 2020, 45% of fatal accidents involved speeding, the most common risk factor in rollovers.
While any vehicle can flip, it’s the larger vehicles with a high center of gravity that have an increased risk of rollovers, including:
- Pickup trucks
- Large commercial trucks
Speeding, sharp turns, slick roads, an overloaded vehicle (particularly on the roof), excessively worn tires, and improper turn negotiation can cause a vehicle to roll over. Fatigue, distracted driving, and/or alcohol may also be a factor.
Why Are Rollover Accidents So Dangerous?
It’s simple: a vehicle’s roof isn’t designed to support the entire weight of the vehicle. When a car rolls over and lands on its roof, fatalities are a frequent result. Those who survive a rollover accident suffer catastrophic injuries that require long-term medical care.
Many rollover accident fatalities are due to passengers and drivers not wearing seat belts. The seatbelt prevents you from being tossed around in the crash. Many fatalities occur because someone was not wearing a seat belt. Most individuals who are ejected from a vehicle don’t survive.
What Are the Most Common Injuries After a Rollover Accident?
While most car accidents can leave drivers and passengers with serious injuries, rollover accident injuries are more catastrophic. Survivors may suffer injuries such as:
- Bruises and lacerations
- Broken, crushed, and fractured bones
- Crush injuries
- Internal injuries that damage organs
- Soft tissue damage—ligaments, tendons, and cartilage
- Nerve damage
- Joint and muscle damage
- Spinal cord damage leading to paralysis and chronic pain
- Traumatic brain injuries
When you have one or more of these injuries, you need financial compensation to take care of yourself and your family. Our Los Angeles rollover accident attorneys at M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers are ready to represent you and help you get the compensation you need to heal and recover.
