Our Michigan car accident lawyers often handle cases for clients involved in rollover accidents. Determining the cause of an SUV rollover and the parties responsible can be a difficult and complex process. The auto and tire industries have been slow to accept responsibility for the design defects which cause or contribute to cause vehicles to roll over. In almost every case, they attempt to blame the driver for failure to maintain control of the vehicle or driving too fast for conditions. We hire the best accident reconstruction experts available to dispute their claims and to win cases for our clients.
Rollover motor vehicle accidents quite often result in life altering injuries, permanent disability or even death. Injuries often include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, severe orthopedic fractures, and other serious injuries. Cases involving death can give rise to a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
Personal injuries from rollover accidents can occur in any vehicle including passenger vehicles, but minivans, pickup truck and sport utility vehicle (SUV) have a greater chance of a single vehicle crash rollover. This is primarily due to the fact that these vehicles are taller (higher center of gravity) and narrower.
Even a 5 star rated vehicle has a 10% chance of a roll over accident. Per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), about 95% of rollovers are tripped - meaning the vehicle strikes something low, such as a curb or shallow ditch, causing it to tip over. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is a great source for the causes of rollover accidents:
