Rollover accidents can be some of the most damaging of all types of car accidents. When a car or SUV rolls, the forces placed on the vehicle and the bodies of the passengers are intense. Most cars are designed to withstand the forces of a more common type of collision from the front, side or rear, but in a rollover accident, the passenger compartment may be completely crushed.

Causes of Rollover Accidents
Any kind of car can be in a rollover accident, but vehicles that have a high center of gravity, such as SUVs and trucks, have a greater chance of rolling over. In fact, well over half of all rollover accidents involve SUVs.
Truck, SUV, and car manufacturers can be held liable for injuries sustained in rollover accidents when the vehicles are not properly designed to have stability around curves or have other manufacturing defects like defective tires or brakes.
Rollover accidents are more likely to cause life-altering injuries like traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. Other causes of rollover accidents include driving too fast, especially around corners, or unsafe road conditions caused by neglect from local governments.
