Factors that contribute to rollover accidents:
  • Top-heavy and unstable vehicles. Taller vehicles that have a high center of gravity like SUVs, trucks, vans and buses tend to be more likely to roll over than a smaller vehicles or compact car.
  • Sudden jerking of the steering wheel and hitting “trips.” Most rollovers happen when the driver needs to make a sharp and abrupt pull of the wheel or the vehicle hits a “trip” such as a curb, median or guardrail. This is called a tripped rollover.
  • Multiple–vehicle car accidents. When vehicles are hit by another vehicle from the side, typically the types of vehicles mentioned above, a rollover can occur.
  • Speeding and/or distracted driving. Speeding is a common cause of automobile accidents. Distracted driving that involves: texting, eating, drinking, being on the phone, etc. is another common cause of rollover accident.
  • Weather conditions. Poor weather conditions can cause car accidents. If an SUV or a truck skids on a slick road, the driver may need to quickly correct the wheel, which can turn into a rollover accident.
