Deerfield Beach Rollover Accidents
In many cases, when a car loses control, it simply slides across the road. Some vehicles, especially SUVs and commercial trucks, however, have a higher risk of simply tipping and rolling over in these types of situations. Rollover accidents don't just occur to SUVs, however. They can occur to any vehicle. Even a low-slung vehicle can tip if it is hit with enough force and speed by another vehicle. Rollover accidents can result in serious injuries and are more likely than other types of crashes to result in fatalities.

The nature of rollovers makes them dangerous. In this type of collision, occupants of a car are jostled violently as the car rolls. The occupants can be ejected or may be smashed up against the interior of the car. In some cases, the car lands on the roof and the roof may collapse, leading to serious head and spinal cord injuries.Why Do Rollover Accidents Occur?
There are many reasons why a rollover crash in Deerfield Beach can occur:
- The driver might swerve suddenly to avoid something or someone on the road
- There may be potholes or other unevenness in the road
- The crash may be caused by poor car design or top-heavy car design
- Rollovers can stem from a broadside accident or a side impact accident
- A high impact and high-speed accident can cause cars to tip
- A driver may lose control on a slippery road
Some vehicles are especially prone to rollovers. Light trucks, vans, and sport-utility vehicles (SUVs) have been shown to have a higher instance of tip overs when compared with passenger cars. In fact, research has shown that over 30% of all traffic fatalities involving SUVs involved a rollover accident. Passenger car fatalities only involve rollovers 16% of the time. However, even if you drive a lower-slung passenger car, you are at risk of a rollover. With the right conditions, virtually any car can tip over in an accident.
