My fellow InjuryBoard.com blogger, Ed Smith in Sacramento, California, has posted on the risks of rollover accidents. Having experienced a rollover in my own SUV, a Ford Explorer, you might say I have an inside perspective on these frightening and life-threatening events. Ed’s FAQ is just as helpful for us in Florida as it is for the folks in California. Take a short trip to his post to get all of the information.
Each year over 10,000 people die in rollover accidents and over 80% of them were killed in single vehicle rollovers.
Even though rollovers are only 3% of all accidents, they account for 1/3 of all fatalities.
