Car and Truck Rollovers Cause Extreme Injuries

Car, SUV and truck rollovers are one of the most serious types of personal injury accidents.  The physical science of a rollover accident leaves little room for drivers and passengers to walk away unhurt — cars, trucks and SUVs moving at a high rate of speed (even if they are not speeding), the weight of the cars,  the hurling of the vehicle, the forceful impacts as the car or truck repeatedly hits the earth, trees or even buildings.

Rollovers can be caused by:

  • Inattentive drivers — talking or texting on cell phones, adjusting the radio volume, eating or drinking, disciplining children
  • Unsafe roads — shoulders that drop off abruptly, too-tight curves, damaged lane barriers, construction zones, no traction, too-often patched so the surface is extremely uneven
  • Weather — rain, ice, snow or even fog
  • Impact from an accident — a side impact, also known as being T-boned
  • Swerving to avoid animals or objects in the road — drivers often suddenly swerve to miss animals in the road or items that have fallen off of trucks, and then over-correct.

Injuries to drivers and passengers, as well as innocent bystanders, can be especially severe:

  • broken bones, frequently more than one
  • damage to internal organs
  • severed or amputated arms or legs
  • traumatic brain injury especially when the person is not wearing a seat belt
  • neck and spinal chord damage as the head is snapped back and forth
  • decapitation
  • extreme facial trauma
  • permanent paralysis
  • death.
