Rollover accidents are among the most dangerous types of vehicular crashes. They occur when a vehicle turns over on its roof or side. These types of crashes have a high fatality rate due to the injuries involved. Particularly susceptible to rollover crashes are “Sport Utility” type vehicles due to their high center of gravity.
Common types of injuries associated with rollover crashes include traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, cuts, and bruises. The forces of impact on the body coupled with flying debris may cause significant injuries on the persons inside the vehicle. Therefore, if you are involved in this type of crash you should report it to the authorities and seek medical treatment right away for your injuries. Injuries don’t always present themselves right away so it’s important that you get checked out.
