SUV Rollovers

Serving Accident Victims across the United States

It is a misconception that large SUVs are safer than small passenger vehicles. Even though SUVs may absorb damage better than small cars, they are at a higher risk for rollovers, which often end with terrible injuries or death. Many SUV manufacturers design vehicles with top-heavy styling and narrow wheel bases. This raises the likelihood of tipping over when accidents occur. Basic changes to SUV designs would alleviate the high threat of rollovers. However, these alterations are costly and lower the bottom lines of major manufacturers.

Injuries Incurred from SUV Rollovers

As an SUV rollover occurs, it is not uncommon for vehicle occupants to experience broken bones and external lacerations. It is also possible for internal injuries to occur. In severe cases, people may suffer spinal cord damage or traumatic brain injuries. Victims may require extensive treatments and rehabilitation to overcome these conditions. Catastrophic injuries may result in permanent disabilities or lifelong deformities. Long term care may cost million of dollars.

Potential Car Defects that Cause Rollovers

An SUV has a higher likelihood of rolling over when it contains certain defects. A major construction defect weakens the vehicle’s chassis. This may cause the suspension to fail while a driver edges around a corner. Brake problems may lead to rollovers, especially with anti-lock brake systems. When brakes fail to work properly, it may be difficult to keep a vehicle stable. Overall design flaws may lead to instability when road imperfections are encountered as well.

Who is Responsible?

When a vehicle rolls over due to poor design, it is important to learn who is responsible for compensation. Car manufacturers must provide safe products to the public. It is essential for designers to create vehicles that are not likely to malfunction. When cars are proven to contain defects in design or engineering that lead to rollovers, the manufacturers must be held accountable.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
