Illinois Rollover Crashes
Rollover collisions are some of the most severe car accidents you can be involved in. They involve a vehicle turning over, either due to being struck by another driver, speeding, or hazardous roadway conditions. Occupants involved in a rollover can be ejected from the vehicle, especially if they are not wearing a seatbelt.
Rollovers are often deadly collisions. In fact, nearly 35 percent of all fatalities involving passenger vehicles are caused by rollover accidents. Injured victims may be able to recover lost compensation with the help of a trained Illinois auto accident lawyer.
