Phoenix Rollover Accident Lawyer

Car crashes resulting in a rollover accident make up more than half of single-car accident fatalities according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The rate of serious injuries is also 36 percent higher for this type of motor vehicle accident.

Rollovers can result in brain and spinal cord injuries, leaving passengers with permanent disabilities. Despite government safety regulations, manufacturers can still be liable for injuries sustained in a rollover accident.

Manufacturer Liability

Vehicle manufacturers know that the roof of a car should be designed to protect its occupants, even during a rollover. Industry experts have coined the phrase "occupant survival space" to factor in roof crush levels expected in a rollover accident. However, it should not intrude upon the occupants' safety zone.

Other defective product design issues arise from manufacturers removing steel from the roof to make the vehicle lighter in order to meet EPA mileage standards. Unfortunately it also weakens the structure of the vehicle, reducing its safety in a car accident.

For these reasons, it is important for Phoenix drivers injured in a rollover accident to consult a lawyer about their legal rights.

Due to the design of suspension systems, an SUV is more prone to rollover accidents. Accidents are frequently the result of tire defects, inadequate brake systems and poor stability in the design.

Manufacturers have a responsibility to design the SUV in a manner that minimizes the risk of a rollover accident. High-profile vehicles that are intended to carry multiple passengers, such as an SUV or van, should be automatically equipped with safety features such as electronic stability control and side curtain air bags.
