California Accident Rollover Lawyers
SUV Rollover Information
Statistics show that SUV rollovers are three times as likely to occur rather than a rollover in other passenger vehicles. Sport utility vehicles have been shown to have the highest death rates occurring in rollovers, while the Ford Explorer SUV is sixteen times more likely to kill another driver in an accident rather than the typical family car. Rollovers have caused thousands of deaths on the nation’s roadways due to the injuries that are caused by rollover accidents. A recent study shows that nearly 11,000 were killed in a rollover accident, while 61% of those accidents were caused by SUV’s. In the last year, that number has increased by 14%. Compared to other vehicle accidents, rollovers do not occur as often, yet when they do occur, they likely are to result in a serious injury or death. Most rollovers occur after the driver runs off of the road, after the driver has lost control of the vehicle. Considering SUV’s have a higher center of gravity rather than other vehicles, it makes them top heavy which can cause any corrective action to put an SUV in a rollover position. Driving with more passengers in a sport utility vehicle also increases the chance of an SUV rollover due to more weight added to the vehicle. For some rollovers, prevention is possible but unfortunately consumers are not aware of the dangers involved in SUV vehicles as well as the tragic and serious injuries that can result from a sport utility vehicle rollover.
