Landover Auto Rollover Accident Attorneys
Seek Compensation after Suffering Injuries in a Rollover Accident
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are over 250,000 rollover crashes in the U.S. every year. These horrific accidents lead to more than 10,000 deaths – which is about one-third of all car-related fatalities.
Though some rollover accidents are caused by another driver’s negligence, many are the result of a defective car part. Whether this defect was the fault of the car designer, manufacturer, or distributor, the fact remains that innocent, injured consumers deserve better. If you were injured in a rollover accident caused by a faulty car part, you need the representation of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney.
At Ashcraft & Gerel, our Landover auto rollover accident attorneys are dedicated to holding powerful corporations and manufacturers accountable for mistakes and negligence that led to the defect. We are ready to fight for you.
Carmakers Must Ensure Consumer Safety
When designing and manufacturing a vehicle, it’s important to make sure the final product can reasonably prevent a rollover in the event of an accident and withstand the impact of an unavoidable rollover.
SUVs are particularly susceptible to rollovers because of their high center of gravity and narrow wheelbase. On top of that, SUV manufacturers often fail to ensure proper roof construction and rollover prevention. Many SUV roofs buckle and collapse when the vehicle rolls over.
Types of Rollover Accidents
A car can roll over after being hit, hitting a large object, or making a sharp turn. All of these situations can cause serious and even deadly injuries.
Some of the most common types of vehicle rollover accidents are:
- Tripped rollovers: This is when a vehicle veers off the road and rolls over after hitting an object that is not another car, such as a tree or a guardrail
- Un-tripped rollovers: This is when a vehicle rolls over after making a sharp maneuver at a high speed
- Multi-vehicle car accidents: This is when a vehicle rolls over after being hit from one side by another vehicle
