About 1 in every 3 motor vehicle accident deaths is caused by a rollover accident, reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Rollovers are so often catastrophic because they increase the chances that people will be thrown from vehicles. They also have such a high incidence of fatality because they can crush the roofs of vehicles and cause life-threatening head and brain injuries. If you have been involved in one of these accidents, contact an experienced Beaverton or Hillsboro Rollover Accident Attorney.
In many cases, some type of negligence contributes to rollover accidents, and people injured by others’ negligence will likely be entitled to compensation for their injuries and losses.

Negligence and Rollover Accidents: Who’s to Blame
The negligence that can cause rollover accidents can come in many different forms. Some of the more common instances of this type of negligence typically include:
- The negligence of other drivers, which may involve other drivers being intoxicated, distracted and/or fatigued. This type of negligence can impair other drivers’ abilities to perceive changing driving conditions and to promptly and appropriately respond to them.
- The negligence of trucking companies, which can involve trucking companies putting inexperienced or poorly trained truck drivers behind the wheels of commercial trucks. When these factors cause rollover accidents, trucking companies can be held accountable and can be legally obligated to compensate injured people.
- The negligence of vehicle equipment manufacturers, which can involve these companies installing defective or dangerous equipment on vehicles. For instance, if faulty brakes or defective tires cause rollover accidents, vehicle equipment manufacturers can be sued for compensation.
- Other forms of negligence, which may specifically involve dangerous roadways or poorly maintained construction sites on or near roads. The companies or entities responsible for road or construction site safety in these cases can be held liable for victims’ injuries when this type of negligence contributes to rollover accidents.
