Rollover Car Accidents in MO Can Be Serious
Though any type of auto accidents can cause serious injuries, the injuries suffered in rollover accidents are often catastrophic. In fact, rollover accidents have the highest rate of fatalities2 than other kinds of collisions. Some common injuries that result from rollover accidents include the following:
- Traumatic brain injury and other head trauma
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Crushed limbs leading to amputations
- Impact injuries from ejection.
Even if a rollover accident victim survives, the resulting injuries may cause permanent disability or incapacitation.
Defective Auto Design Can Lead To Rollovers
In many situations, a motor vehicle may be more prone to rollover due to negligent design. For example, vehicles with a particularly high center of gravity with a light base have a very high risk of rolling over from even the slightest obstacle. If a manufacturer knows that a vehicle has a high risk of rollover accidents, it should manufacture the vehicle with an adequate roll bar, roll cage, and roof strength. If a manufacturer fails to do so, the design of the vehicle is dangerous. Additionally, defective seat belts and side airbags may not properly protect motorists from ejection in rollover accidents.
