The Rollover Accident

Rollover accidents are some of the most frightening and deadly types of car crashes.  If a vehicle tips onto its side or its roof at any point in time during a wreck, it is classified as a rollover. A rollover may occur due to an impact with a fixed object or another vehicle.  In many scenarios, a rollover accident involves the vehicle leaving the road.  Often a rollover accident will result in vehicle occupants being ejected, which increases the likelihood of death.  There are ways to increase the odds of rollover accident survival.
