There are many reasons as to why rollover accidents occur. These reasons are discussed on the “Lake County Rollover Accidents” page.

As discussed on that page, such accidents often lead to serious accident injuries. There are many reasons why the injuries tend to be serious in nature. The accidents usually occur at higher speeds, which increases the likelihood that vehicle occupants will be greatly hurt. Also, due to the tremendous forces involved – many unnatural in nature – resulting physical trauma tends to be higher.

This harm tends to be even greater if the vehicle occupants are not wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Any vehicle occupant not wearing a seat belt risks being ejected (partially or fully thrown) from the vehicle. Such ejections can cause severe injury.
