Rollover accidents are accidents which are caused by the same things that cause other automobile accidents. Some of these causes are things such as: distracted drivers or drivers who are texting and not paying attention to the road, intoxicated drivers that should not be operating a vehicle, unprepared drivers who are not familiar with the area, such a visitors or seasonal residents and of course drivers who have a lack of experience behind the wheel can also cause a rollover accident.
