Why Are SUVs More Prone to Rollover Accidents?
The center of gravity in sport utility vehicles is higher than other vehicles. This causes instability which, ultimately, increases the risk of a rollover. Overcorrecting the wheel to avoid an accident or swerving in poor weather can cause the SUV to easily roll over. While this defective design was improved when manufacturers were ordered to lower the center of gravity of SUVs, the center of gravity in SUVs is still higher than in other vehicles. As a result, the trend of SUV rollover accidents continues.
Once an SUV rolls over, there is additional risk to the driver and passenger. Design defects, manufacturing defects, engineering defects, or other product defects may cause the roof structure to be weak. The initial impact may cause the roof to crush.
People in the vehicle may suffer devastating injuries, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Crush injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Accidental amputation
- Internal organ damage/soft tissue trauma
At Charles G. Monnett III & Associates, we focus our practice on serious injury and wrongful death claims. We have extensive knowledge of these complex cases and have particular skill in cases involving traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other head and brain trauma cases.
Our Charlotte SUV rollover accident lawyers understand the trauma that our clients and their families endure following a devastating rollover accident. We use our investigational skills to uncover auto part defects or design defects so that we may hold manufacturers liable for injuries and fatalities that result from SUV rollover accidents.
