Approximately 75% of all vehicle rollover accidents are single car accidents. A tripping accident occurs when a driver loses traction and begins to slide sideways. Oftentimes, road conditions that are snowy or icy can cause this skid. In the skid, something may cause the vehicle to “trip”, resulting in a rollover. Common causes of tripping are soft shoulders, uneven ground, debris, or roadside objects, such as a curb or guardrail. It is reported that an estimated 95% of vehicle rollover accidents are caused by tripping. If your vehicle was tripped and resulted in a rollover, there is the possibility of a manufacturing defect that caused the vehicle to roll over, rather than to continue to slide. Vehicles that are more prone to rolling over should also have safety features installed to protect the driver and passengers in the case of a rollover.
Another type of rollover accident, which SUV’s and other vehicles with a high center of gravity are more susceptible to is the untripped rollover. In this type of accident, the driver may turn the wheel suddenly to avoid a hazard in the road, and the vehicle overturns. Although manufacturers may want to place the blame on the driver for unsafe driving, evidence shows that SUVs roll over with only the slightest turn of the steering wheel in some circumstances, and had the driver been driving a different vehicle, the rollover would not have occurred at all. Accident investigations are imperative to discover the causes of the rollovers in these situations.
Road hazards, defective tires, unstable vehicles are all common causes of vehicle rollover accidents, and many times, it is not a result of driver error.
