Rollover car accidents can be caused by various factors, including excessive speed, driver impairment, driver negligence, tripping, vehicle design or defects, among others. Rollover collisions can cause major injuries or fatalities, and the occupants of the overturned car could get trapped in the wreckage hence making rescue operations difficult.
When a rollover car crash happens, investigators must look keenly into the circumstances of the accident to determine who is to be held responsible. The investigators examine whether there is evidence of drivers’ negligent actions such as intoxication, speeding, or failure to follow traffic laws. They also examine the condition of the roads, improper signage, and whether third parties, such as construction companies and maintenance crews, could be held responsible.
