What to do After a Vehicle Roll Over

July 15, 2015

A vehicle rollover is one of the worst things that can happen to you on the road. While any vehicle can roll over, you will find that taller, narrower vehicles like SUVs, vans and pickups are more susceptible than traditional cars. This is because they have a higher center of gravity. If your car’s center of gravity shifts to one side when rounding a curve, it may develop sideways forces that can have a dramatic effect on the vehicle’s balance. The lateral forces will often increase with speed and rapid changes in direction. In short, this could lead to loss of control of your vehicle and even a rollover.

Dangerous conditions

Contrary to the popular belief, most automotive rollovers happen in a single vehicle crash. Essentially, this means that some types of driving conditions or driver errors are what is most likely to contribute to these types of collisions. Luckily, most rollovers are largely preventable as long as you are attentive and focused on the roadway.

Some of the conditions that can cause a car to lose traction with the road include:

  • Snowy and icy roads
  • Uneven ground
  • Soft-road shoulder
  • Guardrails

Vehicle malfunction

Vehicle malfunctions may also lead to automotive rollover. In the event that a defective car part contributed to your crash, you could have cause to sue the auto manufacture. In this case, it is essential that you contact an attorney to file a claim for damages as soon as possible.

24 Towing

If you are involved in a rollover car accident, you will want to contact a towing company to retrieve your disabled vehicle from the roadway. Before calling a towing company you will want to be sure that:

1. Your choice company is available for 24 hour towing so that you can get the help you need whenever you need it.

2. Your choice company provides emergency towing services for rollovers. 

Road accidents, car breakdowns and mishaps can happen to anyone. When an unfortunate accident happens to you on the road, it can be quite challenging to get help. Having a dependable tow service to call can make a huge difference if you are ever involved in a rollover accident on the road. If you are looking for a 24 hour towing company, ensure that your prospective company provides regular services in addition to towing for emergencies or accident attendance.
