Understanding Rollover Accidents in Las Vegas

Rollover accidents are among the most dangerous types of vehicle crashes, often resulting in severe injuries or fatalities. While any vehicle can roll over under certain conditions, SUVs, pickup trucks, and vans are particularly susceptible due to their higher center of gravity.

In Las Vegas, factors such as high-speed desert highways, sudden rain causing slick roads, and busy tourist traffic can contribute to the risk of rollover accidents. Understanding the causes and consequences of these crashes is crucial for prevention and legal recourse.

How Common Are Rollover Accidents?

Over 280,000 rollover accidents occur each year in the United States. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), rollover crashes account for about 3% of all serious crashes, but they cause about 30% of all passenger vehicle occupant fatalities. In Nevada, rollover accidents contribute to a significant portion of traffic-related deaths each year. Between 2016 and 2020, approximately 13% of the state’s traffic fatalities were caused by rollover accidents.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Rollover Accidents?

Several factors can contribute to rollover accidents in Las Vegas:

  • Speeding, especially on curves or exits 
  • Alcohol impairment 
  • Distracted driving 
  • Overcorrecting steering 
  • Tire blowouts or defects 
  • Poor road conditions 
  • Vehicle design flaws

Determining the cause of your rollover accident is the first step in identifying the parties who may be liable for your injuries.

How to Recover Compensation as an Injured Passenger of a Rollover Accident

If you are a passenger who suffered injuries when the vehicle you were riding in was in a rollover accident, various sources of recovery may be available to you. As a passenger, you’re generally not at fault for the accident, which can simplify your claim process. However, navigating the legal landscape and recovering compensation can still be challenging. You may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against one or more of the following:


Driver's Insurance

The primary source of compensation is often the insurance policy of the driver operating the vehicle you were in. In Nevada, drivers are required to carry minimum liability coverage of $25,000 for bodily injury or death per person, $50,000 for bodily injury or death per accident, and $20,000 for property damage per accident.

If the driver’s negligence caused the rollover (e.g., speeding, distracted driving, or impaired driving), their insurance should cover your injuries up to the policy limits.


Another Driver's Insurance

If another vehicle was involved in causing the rollover, you may be able to file a car accident claim against that driver’s insurance as well. This is particularly relevant in multi-vehicle accidents or situations where another driver’s actions contributed to the rollover.


Multiple Insurance Policies

In some cases, you may be able to stack multiple insurance policies to ensure full coverage of your injuries. This could include:

  • The driver’s policy 
  • Your own auto insurance (if you have one) 
  • The vehicle owner’s policy (if different from the driver) 
  • Umbrella policies held by any involved parties

Pursuing claims against multiple policies can help ensure you receive adequate compensation, especially in cases of severe injuries.


Vehicle Manufacturer Liability

If a defect in the vehicle contributed to the rollover or the severity of injuries, you may have a product liability claim against the manufacturer.

These cases often require expert testimony and thorough investigation, but they can result in substantial compensation.


Government Entity Claims

In some instances, poor road design or maintenance may contribute to a rollover accident. If this is the case, you may have a claim against the government entity responsible for the roadway. However, claims against government entities have strict deadlines and specific procedures, so it’s crucial to act quickly and seek legal advice.


Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

If the at-fault driver is uninsured or doesn’t have enough coverage to fully compensate you, your own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (if you have it) can provide additional compensation.
