Rollover Crashes in Chicago
Rollover crashes can be dangerous. They have become more common due to the popularity of large, narrow vehicles of SUVs. These types of vehicles are more prone to roll over in the event of a crash.
Rollovers are responsible for nearly 35 percent of all passenger vehicle fatalities. 7,600 people died in rollover collisions in 2010. In some cases, injured victims may be eligible to recover financial compensation.
