Attorneys for Injuries and Fatalities in Rollover Crashes in Decatur, Bloomington, and Springfield

Some of the most serious types of car accidents involve a vehicle turning over onto its side or roof. Rollover accidents can be incredibly dangerous, and they are likely to cause serious injuries to a vehicle's drivers and passengers. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Association reports that even though rollovers only occur in 3% of all motor vehicle accidents, rollovers account for 33% of all car accident fatalities. If you have been injured in a rollover accident, or if your loved one has suffered a wrongful death because of a vehicle rollover, you will want to work with an experienced attorney to find out who was responsible for your accident and learn how you can receive payments that will address your injuries.

What Causes Rollover Accidents?

Rollovers typically happen when a vehicle drives off the road or strikes an obstacle on or near the road. While vehicles that are large and top-heavy are more likely to roll over, any type of car or truck can turn over, and the driver of a vehicle that rolls over is not always at fault for this type of accident.

Some common causes of rollover accidents include:

  • A driver may swerve to avoid distracted drivers, drunk drivers, or other vehicles that are not following the rules of the road. Other issues that can cause a driver to swerve and lose control may include jackknifed trucks or dropped cargo loads.
  • A person may inadvertently drive off the pavement due to a construction zone that did not have the proper signs.
  • Weather conditions, such as snow, ice, or heavy rain, may reduce traction on a road and cause a driver to lose control of their vehicle.
  • Defective vehicle parts can make a vehicle unsafe to drive and lead to rollovers. For example, faulty brakes may lock up and cause a vehicle to go into an uncontrolled skid, or defective tires may blow out or explode.

Rollover accidents are especially likely to occur on the rural roads in central Illinois. Drivers are more likely to lose control and leave the road or stray out of their lane on small, two-lane roads and undivided highways, which may lead to rollover crashes for themselves or others. Driving at high speeds increases the chances of a rollover, and around 75% of all rollover crashes take place in rural areas on roads with a posted speed limit of 55 miles per hour or more.
