Rollover crashes often cause serious accident injuries. The likelihood of serious injuries occurring increases if vehicle occupants are not wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.
While rollover accidents can happen for many different reasons, they often occur due to certain circumstances existing. One of the common characteristics is that they often happen at higher speeds. These higher speeds often contribute to the often serious nature of the resulting accident injuries.
