A “rollover” is a type of crash in which a vehicle tips over onto its side or roof. Rollovers are not as common as other types of accidents. However, when they do occur, rollovers often lead to serious injury or death.
When a motorcycle collides with a car or a truck, the results are often devastating for the motorcycle rider. Motorcycles are not only easy to miss in a driver’s blind spot but they also provide minimal protection to its riders, leaving the rider completely vulnerable in an accident.
When a car accident occurs, there are usually many contributing factors. One such factor is speed. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding contributed to an estimated 28% of traffic fatalities in 2014 (latest available data) and accounts for approximately $40.4 billion per year in taxpayer costs.
