Head Trauma due to Inadequate Roof Pillars
Head trauma, according to the National Highway Safety Institute, is the most frequent type of injury sustained by victims in rollovers, both in fatal and non-fatal accidents. Head trauma is so prevalent in rollover accidents due to a number of factors, including the construction of the vehicle. Vehicles involved in rollovers must have securely built roof pillars or they will intrude into the occupant's space when impacted by the ground. Unfortunately, some of the vehicles most often involved in rollover accidents also have highly inadequate roof pillars, making head injury almost a guarantee.
Head injuries incurred during rollover accidents can have devastating consequences for their victims. If you or someone you love suffered a head injury in a rollover accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering from the vehicle's manufacturer.

Consequences of Head Trauma
Head trauma is an injury to the brain, scalp, or skull. The results of a head injury can range from minor to severe. Common consequences of head trauma include:
- Skull fractures
- Long or short term brain damage
In most cases of head injury, there is likely to be spinal cord injury as well, which can cause further health complications for victims.
