Rollover accidents may be caused by a number of factors on the roadway. Tripped rollover accidents are caused by a contributing force or conditions that trip tires, causing the rollover. Examples of tripping rollover causes include the tires hitting a curb, soft dirt, a side wall, or colliding with another vehicle. Untripped rollover accidents are typically caused by an avoidance maneuver, such as trying to avoid an accident or object in the roadway, shifting the weight and trajectory of the vehicle with such force that it rolls.
Common causes of rollover accidents include:
Injuries from a rollover accident can include head and neck injuries, traumatic brain injury, neck injuries such as whiplash, herniated or bulging spinal discs, spinal cord injuries, amputated limbs, internal organ damage, broken bones, severe burns, and other crushing injuries. Vehicle design flaws such as weak roof pillars, defective or weak auto glass, and seat belt damage and failure can all exacerbate injuries.
The victim of a rollover car accident may have a claim for economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include compensation for current and future medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. Non-economic damages include payment for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to review your case and build the best argument for full compensation for your personal injury claims.

If during an accident a car turns over on its side, roof, or does a complete flip, that is considered a rollover accident.
Rollover accident causes are grouped into two categories: tripped or untripped accidents. Whether a rollover accident is tripped or untripped is dependent on whether there was a contributing outside force. Striking a curb or other obstruction commonly cause tripped rollover accidents, whereas speeding and risky maneuvers are common causes of untripped accidents.
Any vehicle can roll over, however, some types of vehicles are more prone to it. Vehicles with a high center of gravity, such as SUVs, trucks, and vans, are more likely to roll over when in an accident.
