What can cause an SUV rollover?
There is no “one cause” of a rollover crash. They happen due to a variety of causes. However, SUVs have a higher risk of rolling over due to their height. Other factors that go into a rollover crash include things like the weather, the road condition, the speed of the vehicle involved, driver behavior, and more.
Rollover accidents often result in serious injuries. It is not uncommon for us to see the following in the aftermath of a Philadelphia SUV rollover incident:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Loss of or damage to a bodily organ
- Dismemberment or amputation
- Significant disfigurement
- Other injuries that inhibit a person’s daily activities
Rollover accidents account for over 10,000 deaths across the United States each year. During the latest reporting year in Pennsylvania, there were over 128,000 total crashes. The PA Department of Transportation says that there were 3,548 total rollover incidents involving light trucks, SUVs, and vans (we do not have a specific breakdown for only SUVs).
A rollover accident is often caused by a driver drifting off the roadway or overcorrecting a driving error. There are also times when a rollover is caused by excessive driving speeds, drunk drivers, and distracted drivers.
How are victims impacted?
Those injured in an SUV rollover often contend with major medical bills. If their injuries are serious, they may need extensive medical care, including rehabilitation and physical therapy. If they cannot work while they recover, they could lose the income they need to support themselves and their families. Because of the traumatic nature of a rollover incident, victims often suffer from severe emotional and psychological damages.
