Since SUVs first came on the market, they have been popular vehicles with American families and off-road adventure seekers. For families, they offer the versatility of an around town and travel vehicle large enough for the whole family and for adventure seekers they offer the freedom to go where few other vehicles have gone before. While SUVs have been popular for a number of years now for their versatility and perceived safety, they are involved in a disproportionate number of rollover accidents compared to other types of vehicles.
Rollover accidents are serious accidents that result in devastating injuries and death every year. The U.S. Department of Transportation reports that over 4,000 people were killed in rollover accidents and another 84,000 people were injured as a result of rollover accidents in 2006. The same report reveals that SUVs are involved in fatal rollover crashes more than any other type of vehicle.
Many believe that the increased rate of fatal rollovers involving SUVs is due to design flaws, such as a narrow wheel track and high center of gravity. These flaws make it difficult for drivers to perform swift corrective actions or maneuvers without the vehicle rolling over. Additionally, when tires blowout in SUVs they almost always result in fatal rollover accidents.
It is imperative to hire an experienced Florida SUV rollover attorney if you have been involved in a catastrophic rollover accident. An attorney can help determine who is at fault for your accident and help you seek compensation from the responsible party or parties. Depending on the unique circumstances surrounding your case, you may be able to pursue a product liability lawsuit, a wrongful death lawsuit, a brain injury lawsuit or other serious personal injury lawsuits a lawyer can discuss with you.
