Rollover accidents are among the most dangerous auto accidents because they usually result in catastrophic injuries or death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are about 40,000 fatal auto accidents in the United States on average each year. Out of these fatal auto accidents, about 25 percent or 10,000, involve rollover accidents.
Rollover accidents often cause serious injuries such as paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures, internal organ damage and amputations. Many of these injuries could leave you with permanent disabilities that could affect your ability to earn a living. A number of rollover accidents involve sport utility vehicles and light trucks. This is largely because of design and product defects associated with these types of vehicles.
