HELPING INJURED SUV ROLLOVER ACCIDENT VICTIMS SEEK COMPENSATION
Although rollover accidents are fairly uncommon, they still occur more frequently and are more dangerous for SUVs. In 2014, about 58 percent of SUV crash deaths were caused by rollovers whereas 19 percent of car crash deaths resulted from rollovers. The laws of physics dictate that SUVs are more prone to rollover accidents primarily due to having higher centres of gravity caused by their large sizes. The taller heights and heavier weights of SUVs mean that they are more likely to tilt or roll should they lose traction or strike a low object such as a curb.
Rollover accidents are dangerous largely because they can trap drivers and/or cause head injuries. These occurrences are generally the result of the SUV roof and/or side becoming crushed during impact. Additionally, a rollover cannot be controlled once it starts because the wheels leave the ground. The inability to control a rollover means such an accident can easily end up harming drivers and passengers of nearby vehicles as well.
Nevertheless, drivers and passengers who are injured during a rollover accident involving an SUV may recover for the negligence, strict liability, or failure to warn auto manufacturers or retailers for defective design and/or manufacture of such vehicles.
The serious nature of these injuries frequently results in costly medical bills, long recovery periods, and in severe cases, lifetime disabilities which may require ongoing care. If you are faced with these medical and financial hardships, the auto accident lawyers at The Law Firm of Steven York can help you receive the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
