Deadly Rollover Accidents in Nevada
Rollover crashes have a much higher fatality rate compared to other types of collisions. In 2010, only 2.1% of reported car accidents were rollover crashes, but that year, around 35% of deadly passenger-vehicle collisions involved rollover collisions. Of those killed, around 69% were unrestrained at the time of the accident. Rollovers are often caused by driver error or inclement roadway conditions, and vehicle occupants are at risk of suffering life-threatening injuries. Surviving family members of victims in a crash should consult with a Nevada wrongful death attorney to discuss lost compensation.
