SUV Rollover Accidents
When you choose a car, you try to find the safest option for you and your family. Many people choose to drive SUVs because they are supposed to be safe. However, when the worst happens and your car crashes, SUVs may not always be a safe bet. Some SUVs roll over during a crash, which can significantly increase passenger and driver injuries or even cause death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of fatal SUV rollover crashes in the United States has doubled since 1991.
In some cases, the car’s roof may even collapse entirely, causing serious injury to those inside the vehicle. This can happen as a result of poor roof construction by your car’s manufacturer. Some SUVs are equipped with roll bars to help prevent roof collapse, but vehicles without these bars leave their riders vulnerable to severe injury.
Car accidents are terrifying as it is. You shouldn’t have to worry that your car will not hold up in the event of an accident. Unfortunately, some SUVs do not offer guaranteed protection from rollover accidents.
If you or a loved one was injured in a rollover accident, you already know how bad they can be. You may be struggling with rising medical bills or incapable of returning to work.
An attorney cannot undo the damage caused by your SUV rollover accident, but they can help you fight for the justice you deserve. An experienced attorney can listen to your story and help you explore your options. If an auto manufacturer’s negligence contributed to your SUV rollover accident, they should be held accountable.
You may even be entitled to a financial settlement to compensate for the injuries and emotional trauma you suffered as a result of the crash. Although financial compensation cannot make up for the tragedy of a severe car crash, it can be an important step in holding manufacturers accountable for the products they sell.
The size of the settlement you receive depends on the extent of your injuries, but it also depends on the skill of your attorney. You need an attorney with the reputation and experience necessary to maximize your compensation.
