Car accidents can occur at any moment on Texas highways, and are especially common in heavily traversed highways. The incidence of rollover accidents is higher in certain situations, especially with vehicles that are top heavy and are traveling too fast along curved roadways. Rollover accidents are among the easiest to prevent if drivers are following the rules of the road. Therefore, any injuries sustained from a rollover accident are even more upsetting with the knowledge that these accidents could have been avoided. If you or a loved one have been injured in a rollover accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
More than 10,000 people are killed each year throughout the country in rollover accidents, a number which represents approximately 30 percent of the total annual car accident fatalities. Many rollover accidents occur when drivers attempt to overcorrect themselves, either from veering too far to one direction, or to avoid hitting another vehicle or object. Rollover accidents are more prevalent among “top heavy” vehicles, such as sport utility vehicles and trucks. However, rollover accidents can occur to any vehicle which may take a curve at a high rate of speed, or a vehicle which collides into another vehicle.

Rollover accidents are often the fault of one driver who is either not paying attention or takes a turn too sharply. These actions can lead to devastating injuries for passengers in the car or drivers in other cars that are struck by the negligent driver.
