Vehicle rollovers a leading cause of bodily harm in an accident

Any motor vehicle accident can cause victims to suffer one or more injuries. Even a relatively minor fender bender can leave one or all of the involved parties nursing injuries. However, some accidents top the list of those that cause the most physical trauma. Vehicle rollovers rank high among the kinds of motor vehicle accidents that lead to death or serious injury. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the only other accident type that is more severe -- on average -- is a frontal crash.

Most citizens in the Houston area never expect to have an accident, and they certainly never expect a vehicle rollover to occur. Unfortunately, the NHTSA says that rollovers can happen to any type of vehicle. In some cases, all it takes to trigger a rollover is encountering or experiencing a "tripping mechanism" while traveling with the right amount of lateral velocity.

Examples of mechanisms that may cause a vehicle to "trip" and subsequently rollover include:

-- Hitting curbs or bumps

-- Abrupt swerving

-- Tire failure

-- Mechanical failure

By contrast, some vehicle rollovers have no explanation or apparent cause. This is frequently the case with ordinary cars and light-duty trucks that are not carrying cargo. Whether the cause of a rollover is known or not known, victims of these devastating accidents need legal assistance. Uncovering the facts of the accident can open the door for victims to seek the compensation they need from the at-fault party.
