Fort Myers Rollover Accident Attorneys
Auto Accident Attorneys in Fort Myers
When a car, truck, SUV, or any other motor vehicle flips on its back, it is called a rollover accident. Although larger vehicles like trucks and SUVs are more susceptible to rollovers, these types of accidents can happen to any motorist. Passengers in rollover accidents are frequently the most at-risk of harm, especially if they are not wearing a seatbelt. Without the restraint of a seatbelt, passengers can be tossed about the vehicle while it still is rolling and even be ejected. While rollover accidents occur less frequently than other types of accidents, they still account for about 30 percent of passenger vehicle fatalities.

How Rollover Accidents Occur
Rollover accidents can come about in any number of ways. While the majority of rollover accidents only involve one car, getting hit by another vehicle can easily cause an automobile to flip. Also, speeding frequently causes rollovers, as hitting a pothole or improperly maintained road obstacle can cause a turning, speeding automobile to flip quite easily.
In addition, swerving out of the way of other vehicles can cause a car, truck, or SUV to flip. If the operator of the other vehicle is fatigued, distracted, under the influence, or just plain reckless, a reasonable motorist may swerve out of the path of the oncoming vehicle, thereby causing an inadvertent rollover of their own automobile. We recommend that you always be on the lookout for negligent or distracted motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. They can forget the rules of the road, get in your way, and subsequently cause you to turn sharply and flip your vehicle.
Depending on the speed, slope, and distance, a car can roll for tens of meters, thereby causing severe injuries and even death.
Common injuries sustained in rollover accidents include the following, and more:
- Road rash
- Severe burns
- Head injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Soft-tissue injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Internal organ damage
- Fractured or broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
