Rollover accidents can cause devastating injuries because of the forces involved in the tumbling vehicle and the likelihood of the roof caving in because of faulty designs is some vehicles. In the Seattle and Tacoma area, you can trust the attorneys of Buckley & Associates to stand up for your rights if you have been injured in a rollover accident.
Cause of Rollovers
Certain vehicles are more likely to rollover because of their design. Vans, such as 15-passenger vans, which are often used to transport youth groups to activities, and SUVs, which are driven by many moms across the country because they feel safer than lower riding cars, are actually dangerous because of design elements, such as:
- Narrow wheelbase
- High center of gravity
- Lack of electronic stability system
Some manufacturers have already heeded the warning of engineers and added these recommended adjustments to their designs. Others however have ignored the research and put their bottom line profit above the safety of the drivers and passengers in their vehicles.
In addition to design concerns, many vehicles that are prone to rollover automobile accidents are lacking sufficient crash protections, such as:
- Side curtain airbags
- Laminated windows
- Strengthened side pillars
- Reinforced roofs
The faulty designs and lack of protections cost thousands of people their lives and severely injure thousands more.
