Rollover accidents are more likely to result in serious or fatal injury than many other types of car accidents. The rate of serious or fatal injury in car accidents in which rollover occurs is over 35% higher than the rate of injury in accidents where there is no rollover. Sadly, the cause of fatal injury in many rollover accidents has less to do with the rollover itself, and more to do with vehicle defects such as insufficient support structure or faulty safety equipment.
