Rollover Crashes in Ohio
Rollover accidents may be particularly serious or fatal to the occupants of the automobile that rolls over because they frequently entail a roof crush, a highway departure, or an ejection from the vehicle. A total of 6,358 persons lost their lives in rollover accidents in 2019, according to the IIHS. Although rollovers occur in only 3% of traffic accidents, they account for 29% of fatalities involving car occupants.
A car accident might result in significant damage for those involved. However, handling a car accident lawsuit without an accident attorney’s help is far more difficult.
