Recently, a New Jersey resident was injured when his SUV rolled over. The victim reported that he had been driving in the left lane when the driver next to him tried to merge, causing him to lose control of his vehicle and hit a snowbank along the highway. The driver of the SUV was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.

Dangers of Rollovers

Most rollovers are the result of driver behavior or a car coming into contact with another object. However, road conditions and environmental factors do play a role in many rollover crashes.

Some of the most common causes of rollover accidents include:

  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  • Road hazards;
  • Speeding;
  • A failure to yield the right-of-way;
  • Improperly loaded cargo;
  • Distracted or reckless driving; and
  • Improper vehicle maintenance.

Common Injuries

Whatever their cause, all rollover accidents are dangerous and often result in deadly injuries. This is mostly due to the fact that in these types of collisions, victims withstand multiple impacts. For this reason, victims of rollover crashes are much more likely to sustain multiple injuries than are victims who were involved in more common types of collisions.

Some of the most common injuries that result from rollover crashes include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis
  • Broken or crushed bones
  • Neck injuries
  • Burns


Treating these types of injuries can be financially ruinous to victims and their families. However, when accidents are caused by another person’s negligence or wrongful act, victims may be able to obtain compensation for their losses.

Rollover car accidents can be physically, financially, and emotionally devastating for a victim and his or her family. If you were involved in a car crash that was someone else’s fault, it is important to obtain the advice of an experienced Philadelphia car accident lawyer who can help protect your interests.
