Vehicle Rollover Accidents
SUVs Can Be Dangerous
A vehicle can rollover and cause injuries. Of all vehicles, SUVs are more likely to roll over. Every year thousands of people are killed in SUV rollovers. The majority of rollover injuries and fatalities occur to drivers and occupants of the SUV. The majority of injuries occur after the SUV leaves the road.
Why do SUVs Rollover?
SUVs are top heavy. Their wheel base is short (less than 100 inches) in proportion to their height. Sudden maneuvers or collisions can make them rollover. A rolling SUV can end up in the path of oncoming traffic endangering other motorists.
Sometimes, the roof of an SUV can collapse resulting in injuries and even death. This is a major design defect.
A SUV rollover lawsuit involves complex legal issues. Sometimes, the rollover might have been caused by the defective design of the SUV. The GA accident attorneys at The Burnside Firm have the expertise and skills required to investigate a SUV rollover and identify the cause of the rollover.
