As discussed on the “Lake County Rollover Accidents” page, rollover accidents have many notable characteristics. While they can happen for many different reasons, there are certain conditions that greatly increase the probability of a vehicle rollover. Due to the traumatic nature of vehicle rollovers, they often result in serious accident injuries. This is especially so if the vehicle occupants are not wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.
Furthermore, rollover accidents typically happen at higher speeds, which further tends to increase the severity of the resulting harm to vehicle occupants.
