As experienced Kansas City Auto Injury Lawyers, we know rollover accidents can be fatal for everyone involved.  In fact, rollover accidents claim over 10,000 lives every year.  This is truly a shocking statistic and one that can’t be ignored.  Over-correcting is a common cause of rollover accidents in Kansas and Missouri.  Over correction can be a deadly reaction to avoid an accident and almost usually makes your situation worse.  Remember if you begin to lose control to take your foot off the gas and gently steer your vehicle back into correction.  Suddenly cranking the wheel can cause your vehicle to rapidly lose control.
