Types of Rollover Accidents in Arizona
There are two main types of rollover accidents that occur in Arizona. Untripped type rollover accidents occur when a vehicle has a high center of gravity and is top heavy. If and when that type of vehicle has to make a maneuver too quickly, this can cause the vehicle to “tip” over and eventually roll over onto its roof.
The second type of rollover accident is the tripped-type rollover. This type of rollover is by far more common and is a result of a vehicle’s tires catching on an object which could be a burm of dirt or a curb. It is the impact with that object that causes the vehicle to roll over.
Both types of rollover accidents can cause unrestrained passengers to be ejected from the vehicle. As you can imagine this even further increases the chance of serious injury and death.

Causes of Rollover Car Accidents in Phoenix
Rollovers can be caused by a variety of factors including:
- Weather conditions
- Driver being distracted
- Impaired driver (alcohol or drugs)
- Vehicles that are overloaded/overweight or loaded improperly
- Road defects/damage (anything from potholes to uneven asphalt)
- Obstructions in roadway (this can include rocks/tree debris or objects that have fallen off of other vehicles)
The truth is many rollovers could be prevented by obeying local traffic laws and keeping a proper lookout for other drivers. Sad reality is far too many drivers follow this, and thus cause collisions that result in injuries to others.

Proving Fault in a Gilbert, AZ Rollover Crash
All drivers have a legal duty to not injure or harm others while driving. So when someone is negligent while driving and that negligence causes a collision and results in injuries to others, that driver has breached their legal duty to others. This is called proving fault and is the first step in an injury case.
When our Firm first takes on a personal injury case, our experienced Team then gets to work collecting all of the evidence and documents of the collision. This includes the accident exchange form, the Arizona traffic collision report, photos of collision, photos of injuries and witness statements, and more. Our Team then works tirelessly to ensure the other party admits fault for the collision.
It’s also critical to know that in addition to other driver’s being at-fault for collisions. In some instances, state or local agencies may share fault. For example if it’s found during the investigation that a roadway or guardrail is defective or broken in some way and that was a contributing factor why the collision occurred. In those cases, the state or local agency may share in the negligence and thus be at least partially at fault.
As you can see navigating your injury case can be complex, don’t go it alone. Let our Team of experienced injury attorneys help you every step of the way.
