We extend our sympathies to the injured and hope they recover quickly and completely.
When a car rolls over in an accident, the results can be catastrophic. Our hearts go out to those involved in this accident, and we hope they are able to recover quickly.
Rollover accidents usually happen in one of two ways:
- When a vehicle, usually with a high center of gravity like SUVs, pickup trucks, and passenger vans, loses its balance and control after a sharp turn
- When a vehicle “trips” on something: a pothole, soft shoulder, curb or guardrail and topples over
These accidents are especially upsetting because most people believe that cars are designed to be safe: to not to roll over, and to protect the passengers if they do. In some cases, where the accident was clearly caused by poor vehicle design or faulty parts, the manufacturer or distributor may be held liable.
