How Rollover Accidents Happen
Many rollover accidents are single-vehicle accidents. At a cursory glance, this may seem to indicate that the driver must be the liable party, as there are no other motorists involved in the crash. With the assistance and careful eyes of our personal injury lawyers, we may be able to spot evidence to the contrary.
Outside factors that can cause a rollover accident include:
- Road conditions: Streets can be icy, slippery, and covered in debris, especially in the winter time. It is often up to local municipalities to clear off roads to keep drivers safe. If they do not and a rollover is caused, they could be to blame for failing to maintain safe roadway conditions.
- Defective tires: A vehicle’s tires are what keeps it on the road and balanced while taking turns at moderate speeds. Defective tires will not be able to grip the road and can buck a vehicle to one side, ultimately causing a rollover. The tire manufacturer could be liable for the damages.
- Pit maneuvers: Negligent drivers that follow too closely may strike the back wheel of the car in front of them as they round a bend, also called a pit maneuver. This impact will cause the front of the car to whip sharply and has a high likelihood of resulting in a rollover accident.
