Rollover accidents, by their nature, tend to be highly physically traumatic to vehicle occupants. Accident injuries tend to be serious in nature for those involved. If vehicle occupants are not wearing seat belts at the time of the accident, occupants have higher risk of being ejected (partially or fully thrown) from the vehicle.
Various aspects of rollover accidents, including their causes and the types of injuries that tend to occur, are discussed on the “Cook County Rollover Accidents” page. An excerpt:
