California SUV Rollover Accident Lawyers

Fighting for the Injured throughout California

Just a few years back, sports utility vehicles had gained notoriety for being involved in the most rollover accidents per year. SUVs would account for more than 10,000 fatalities a year as a result of rollover accidents. New regulations such as the Federal mandate that all passenger vehicles include Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and better public awareness have led to a decrease in rollover accidents in recent years. Advances in design and safety technology have also improved the accident safety of sport utility vehicles.

According to a recent report by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, SUVs are now less likely to roll-over in a crash than a car. Someone driving a 2009 or newer model year car is almost twice as likely to die in a roll-over accident as someone driving a 2009 or newer sport-utility vehicle. Even so, SUVs still account for a large number of California roll-over collisions, as there are still a large number of older sports utility vehicles and 15-passenger vans on the roads, which lack the modern safety technologies found in newer vehicles.

Rollover accidents remain a leading cause of auto accident fatalities in California, and both automobiles and sport utility vehicles are still susceptible to rolling over at high speeds and during tight turns, as are light trucks and other highway vehicles. A majority of passenger vehicle roll-over accidents are single-vehicle crashes. As opposed to multi-vehicle crashes, which involve more than one automobile, single-vehicle collisions involve only a one vehicle and typically result when the driver of a vehicle loses control of the vehicle or exceeds the handling capabilities of the automobile.

The problem becomes finding a responsible party and obtaining proper insurance coverage for your accident. A passenger of a vehicle involved in a single-vehicle crash may still be able to receive compensation for their medical bills and injuries from the drivers’ automobile insurance. An experienced rollover collision lawyer will be able to help you navigate the personal injury claims process and help you get coverage for your injuries.

Common issues in rollover crashes and light truck and SUV accidents:

  • Pillar collapse and failure
  • Defective roof materials
  • Faulty vehicle design
  • Roof crush and collapse
  • Seatbelt failure
  • Door-latch failure
  • Tire failure and defects
  • Defective design
  • Defective manufacturing and production

What causes rollover accidents in trucks and sports utility vehicles is the high center of gravity, which makes it easier for taller vehicles to tip and flip over during evasive maneuvering and emergency driving conditions. Very few sports utility vehicle accidents are “routine.” A successful California rollover traffic accident attorney must not only take into account the “rules of the road,” but also the complex scientific and engineering principles needed to unravel just how a vehicle rollover accident occurred on the roadways and who, if anyone, was at fault.

Our experienced attorneys can review your claim for compensation against the negligent driver as well as to explore claims against the vehicle manufacturer for product liability due to defective design and defective production. Our staff is prepared to investigate, and aggressively pursue your car accident case. We don’t shy away from “problem” cases as other attorneys may.
