Cars Vs. Trucks And SUVs

Rollover accidents are most commonly associated with trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUVs), but as the data suggests, thousands of cars per year unfortunately also experience this particularly dangerous type of accident. SUVs, because of their design, are most often linked to rollovers and more than half of all SUV-crash fatalities are due to rollovers, compare with only one-quarter of passenger vehicle accidents.

Rollovers Are Particularly Injurious And Often Fatal

In Massachusetts alone, more than 15 percent of all fatal car accidents each year involve rollovers. That's nearly one-in-six motor vehicle accidents, slightly less often than the national average. Nonetheless, according to the latest data from the NHTSA, in one year alone, 72 people from Massachusetts were killed in rollovers. Sadly, many others are left with serious personal injuries following rollover car crashes.

Common Injuries Following Rollovers

Because more than 60% of victims who are injured in rollover are ejected from the vehicle, traumatic brain injuries are commonly reported. Also, often, victims experience broken bones, severe lacerations, neck and back injuries, and other serious injuries. In all, severe head, neck, back, and other long-term physical injuries can result, requiring thousands in medical bills and many days of lost wages. Additionally, you may be left in excruciating pain and unable to enjoy many of the life activities you used to. In short, rollovers are devastating for victims and their families.

Know Your Rights

Massachusetts drivers are protected under state law, which finds other negligent drivers liable to injured motorists involved in an accident. Compensation can be had for any injuries caused by another driver's negligence, including medical expenses, compensatory pain and suffering, loss of employment, loss of daily enjoyment, loss of consortium, etc.
