What Happens To Your Body In A Rollover Accident?

Rollover

Any type of car accident can be hard on the human body. However, some types of car accidents have a higher risk of life-threatening and permanent injuries. Some accidents have a higher fatality rate than others. Rollover accidents are among the types of car accidents with a higher risk of life-threatening and permanent injuries. These accidents have a higher fatality rate than most other accidents.

This article looks at what happens to the human body in a rollover accident.

What Happens to the Human Body in a Rollover Accident?  

Numerous things could happen to your body in a rollover accident. As the car rolls over, you could get tossed around in the car if you are not wearing a seat belt or if the seat belt disengages. As you get thrown around in the vehicle, your body could slam into the vehicle’s interior parts, such as the steering wheel and dashboard. The more your body gets thrown around in the car, the more chance you can suffer injuries from blunt force trauma.

Unfortunately, even if you are wearing a seat belt and the seat belt prevents your body from being thrown around in the car during a rollover accident, objects within the vehicle may slam into your body with great force. Debris like backpacks, groceries, and purses can hit your body and cause severe injuries.

Also, you could be thrown out of the car during a rollover accident. This is especially possible if you are not wearing a seat belt. If thrown out of a vehicle during a rollover accident, you could get crushed by the car or slam into another object. An individual who gets thrown out of the vehicle during a rollover collision has a high chance of suffering catastrophic or fatal injuries.

Common Injuries in Rollover Accidents

The multiple impacts in rollover accidents can cause several injuries. Some of the common injuries sustained in rollover accidents include;

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severe back and neck injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputations
  • Deep lacerations
  • Internal bleeding

Unfortunately, injured individuals who survive rollover accidents usually face a lifetime of significant impairment, including seizures, paralysis, intellectual impairment from head trauma, and mobility challenges.

Filing a Claim for Compensation After a Rollover Accident

Too often, rollover accidents happen because of other negligent drivers. You might be entitled to compensation if you get into a rollover accident because of another driver’s negligence. Common negligent acts that can lead to rollover accidents include;

  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving

Some of the damages you can be compensated for after being in a rollover accident because of another party’s negligence include;

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Vehicle damage
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

It is in your best interest to speak to an attorney after suffering injuries in a rollover accident because of another driver.
