Rollover Accidents in Seattle WA
A rollover collision has a high risk of serious injury, and these crashes account for a disproportionate number of national highway fatalities each year. A rollover may be more likely if you drive too fast. The majority of rollover accidents are caused by inattentive drivers or poor road conditions. In 2010, rollovers were implicated in around 35% of all traffic deaths, while accounting for fewer than 2% of all reported accidents.
Unrestrained passengers were responsible for 69% of rollover-related deaths that year, with an estimated 7,600 people killed in rollover collisions. Anyone injured in a catastrophic accident may be eligible for compensation with the help of a qualified personal injury attorney in Seattle.
