According to data gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 85 percent of rollover accidents involve only one vehicle. Ninety percent of fatal rollovers occur when the vehicle is involved in routine driving maneuvers, such as the most recent case in Fort Lauderdale where the vehicle struck a curb before hitting a tree and rolling onto its side.

While this accident is still under investigation and it is too early to determine its cause, many rollover accidents are a result of defective vehicle issues such as poor design or improper safety features. The best way to determine the cause of a rollover is with the help of an experienced auto accident attorney.
