Among the deadliest type of car accident is a rollover. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that while accidents involving a rollover account for only 3% of auto accidents, one-third of all traffic accident fatalities arise from a collision in which a vehicle has rolled. Further, a vehicle occupant in a non-rollover accident has 0.2% chance of sustaining a fatal injury, but an almost 3% chance of being killed when the collision involves a rollover.

Raleigh Rollover Accident Attorney

Raleigh car accident lawyer Herbert Auger has been practicing law since 1990 and has only represented injury victims throughout his entire career, and has collected millions of dollars in settlements for his clients. Auger & Auger has earned a reputation for aggressively pursuing money damages for clients injured due to the fault of someone else, as well as for demonstrating compassion and understanding toward clients who are suffering both physically and financially.

In North Carolina, one-third of fatal car accidents involve a rollover accident. This is the same as the national average. According to NHTSA, 80% of rollover deaths in North Carolina are from single-vehicle rollovers. When a vehicle flips, there is a high likelihood of being ejected from the vehicle. In the event a victim survives a rollover accident, they are often left with life-changing medical or financial circumstances. Prolonged medical treatment and rehabilitation are not uncommon, nor is the loss of the ability to work, following a rollover accident.

Light Trucks/SUVs More Likely to Roll

Despite newer SUVs and light trucks now being equipped with electronic stability control, they are still more prone to rollover in a single-vehicle accident than a passenger car. With a higher center of gravity, an SUV is at 2.3 times the risk of rolling than a car, and a light truck is at 1.7 times the risk of flipping. New vehicles with stability control technology are less likely to flip while traveling on a flat surface, but the reality is that most single-vehicle rollovers (95%) happen when the vehicle has hit something, such as a curb or the edge of the road where it may meet a gravel shoulder (such as during an overcorrection maneuver). When this happens, the vehicle is said to have “tripped” and it rolls over.
