What you know about how rollover accidents happen and these three risks could lead you to receiving the compensation you deserve in a rollover car accident claim. Additionally, making sure your vehicle is safe to drive reduces the harm to yourself or others, as well as civil lawsuit.
What Are 3 Common Causes of Rollover Accidents
• High speed
The faster someone is driving above the speed limit, the greater the chance that there is of driver losing control and being ejected out of a vehicle or vehicle flipped over. Impact velocity of a vehicle in a high-speed crashing into something solid or another vehicle can create a catastrophic ending you or a loved one. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash data the greatest percentage of rollover accidents occur between 48 to 80 mph. Interesting to note, the amount of rollover accidents that occur in dry conditions is significantly higher than in wet conditions. For example, you might find surprising that rain or ice did not seem to be a significant factor in rollover crashes in the NHTSA data. Being extra cautious and reducing speed when traveling on bumpy streets because your car can lose contact with the ground or winding roads, especially in rural areas can prevent a rollover accident. Why not reduce speed when it is so easy to do so? Most causes of rollover accident are in the hands of the driver.
• Alcohol and/or drugs
Just like with faster speeding your risk of rollover goes, doing more alcohol can lead to having higher impairment resulting in catastrophic destruction. You may find alarming is that almost a third of all rollover crashes had an impaired driver. According to the data it is important to note that this only recorded alcohol impairment. This alcohol rollover related number can be higher with cases of impairment due to drug use for drivers in rollover crashes.
• Vehicle or tire defects
This is why it is of the utmost importance to get your car inspected in accordance with the Michigan’s driving laws and manufacturer specification for the vehicle you drive. On the other hand, sometimes a vehicle mechanic may not catch a manufacturing defect. In most newer cars there is a tire sensor light that comes on when your tire pressure is low. Even better, new cars now have an electronic stability control (ESC) feature to prevent rollovers. Although, if you may have an older car, you should always routinely check the condition of your tires during oil changes. Most quicklube oil changes will check and fill your tire pressure free. But, if you find anything looks worn or the tire radial belts are exposed, do not drive, and have the tire replaced. Over the years, there have been cases of rollover accidents where the car or tire manufacturing company was at fault for a tire defect related rollover.
