What Causes a Rollover Accident?
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) reports that there were more than 401,000 crashes in 2021. Of those, roughly 600 were rollover accidents.
A rollover accident occurs when a car is flipped onto its roof, tips over onto one side, or flips end over end multiple times. Rollovers are among the most serious types of car accidents because they increase the potential for especially severe injuries. They also have higher death rates.
Rollovers can happen when two or more vehicles collide or when a driver loses control of the car. They can also happen when a car loses contact with the ground, either because it hit something or because of a slick patch on the road.
Speeding is frequently involved, as well as a driver impaired by drugs or alcohol. The vehicle may also have a mechanical defect leading to a rollover accident. Larger vehicles, such as SUVs, are more prone to rollovers.
