SUV Rollover Accident Lawyer
In Orlando, Florida sport utility vehicles (SUVs) along with “Crossover” vehicles and large vans make up a large volume of the traffic on our roadways. These vehicles have risen in popularity in past years and have become a serious concern in regards to safety. Many injuries have occurred because these vehicles are susceptible to rollovers. Rollovers can be either single-vehicle accidents or a rollover can be caused by a collision with another vehicle. Even with the advancements in electronic stability control systems, rollover accidents occur more frequently in SUVs than cars. Studies by the “National Highway Traffic Safety Administration” show that SUVs in fatal crashes roll over about 33% of the time. Studies show that cars and vans roll over only 17% of the time. Many people ask “why is this?” Many of the popular SUVs are designed using a short and narrow wheelbase, higher center of gravity with higher ground clearance. This makes these types of vehicles top-heavy and therefore can easily tip over. In 2011, 55% of SUV drivers and passengers who died in auto accidents were involved in a rollover accident.
Common Injuries in Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents commonly result in very severe and many times life-threatening injuries such as broken and fractured bones, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. In many rollover accidents, the vehicle occupants tend to be partially or fully ejected during the accident.
Roof Crush & Fires in Rollover Accidents
One major issue with SUVs is that when they roll over, the roof of the vehicle many times is not strong enough to sustain the entire weight of the vehicle, and the roof collapses. Many serious injuries and deaths can be attributed to SUV roof failure, roof crushing, or roof pillar collapsing. If it can be shown and proven that a defective design contributed to the roof crush and the subsequent injuries, the manufacturer can be held liable for the injuries suffered by the vehicle occupants. At The Jaspon Firm, Jeremiah Jaspon will investigate your SUV rollover case, he has relationships with expert witnesses and specialists and will use all his resources to demonstrate any possible design flaws in the vehicle and how these flaws contributed to catastrophic injuries or death.
In SUV rollovers many times these accidents result in vehicle fires. When the SUV turns over its gas tank or fuel lines frequently become damaged causing fuel to leak. It is very commonplace for serious physical injuries to occur as a result of SUV rollover fires.
Vehicle safety advocates have been working hard to get the federal government to help stop SUV rollover accidents by mandating different types of improvements in SUV’s and other crossover and large vans which all have a long history of rollover occurrences. The government has been very slow in taking action on such mandates which would possibly protect many rollover accident victims.
