SUV Rollover Accidents
Though there have been considerable advancements in the rollover prevention technologies available for SUVs during the past decade, many of the SUVs on our roads pre-date these safety technologies. As such, rollover accidents are still a serious concern for many SUV drivers. When any vehicle is involved in a rollover accident, the possibility of serious injury and death are dramatically increased for the vehicle’s occupants. Unfortunately, SUVs have a higher rollover propensity than most family cars because of their higher center of gravity. The injuries sustained in these accidents are often more serious than in other accidents and can be devastating for victims and their families.
When these accidents occur as a result of a manufacturer defect or error, rollover victims may be eligible for financial restitution from those responsible. Skilled legal representation can make a critical difference in the recovery of the financial damages sustained in these accidents.
Common Injuries Sustained in Rollover Accidents
The injuries that commonly result from rollover accidents are severe and will likely have an impact on nearly every aspect of an individual’s life. Unfortunately, there is a possibility that rollover accidents will result in the following:
- Spinal injury
- Brain injury
- Loss of limb
- Internal injury
While wearing a seat belt will surely help protect passengers’ safety, injuries inflicted by a rollover accident are often the result of the violent motion of the vehicle and may not be entirely prevented by a seat belt.
