While insignificant bump and scrape car accidents occur every day without many consequences, many car accidents are very serious. One of the most dangerous types of accidents are rollover accidents. Taller, narrower vehicles are the most likely type of vehicle to experience a rollover accident, although it ca happen to anyone under certain circumstances. According to the website of some Tennessee personal injury lawyers, some of the costs and losses that a victim has to face after a rollover accident can include: vehicle repairs, medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, and emotional trauma.

There are two common types of rollover accidents that can occur: tripped and un-tripped. The first are tripped rollovers. These are the most common type of single-vehicle rollovers. These accidents occurred when a vehicle slides off the roadway into softer soil, or gets caught on a curb or guardrail. At certain speeds, this impact can cause the vehicle to “trip” spinning it into a rollover. A tripped rollover can also occur on a steep slope. If a drive underestimates the steepness of a slope and attempt to make a sharp turn at a certain speed, this can also cause the vehicle to trip.

The other type of rollover accidents that can occur are un-tripped rollover accidents. Un-tripped rollover accidents occur when a driver attempts to avoid a collision with another vehicle or debris, animals, and fallen objects that may be obstructing the roadway. A driver will attempt to abruptly swerve the vehicle to avoid the obstruction or collision, but if the vehicle is going fast enough and had a heavier than average load, the force of this action could cause the vehicle to rollover in the roadway.

Effects of a rollover accident can be permanent, life altering, and in some unfortunate cases, life threatening. Unfortunately, in many cases, rollover accident was preventable and occurred due to the carelessness of another. If this is the case, certain damages may be owed to the victim of such an incident.
