Ashcraft & Gerel Can Help You Pursue a Claim
More than 10,000 people die tragically in the 250,000+ rollover accidents that occur annually in the U.S. Rollover crashes—which account for about one-third of all vehicle-related fatalities—can be caused either by driver negligence or by a defective auto part in the vehicle. When a defective design or a manufacturing mistake is to blame for someone’s injuries, the negligent party must be held accountable.
Far too often, vehicles are not designed to prevent rollovers in the event of an accident or are not constructed with the ability to withstand a rollover’s impact. In either situation, the vehicle manufacturer may be to blame and could be held liable for the resulting injuries.
If you or someone you love is suffering an injury after a rollover accident because of a vehicle defect, turn to Ashcraft & Gerel. Our rollover accident attorneys in Manassas have helped numerous injured people in their fights for justice.

SUVs & Rollover Crashes
Because they have a high center of gravity and a narrow wheelbase, sport utility vehicles (SUVs) are particularly susceptible to rollovers. On top of this, many SUVs on the market have poorly constructed roofs that buckle and collapse when the car flips over in an accident. These types of accidents often lead to brain and spinal cord injury, neck fractures, and even death.

Types of Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents can be placed into one of three categories:
- Tripped rollovers: These occur when the vehicle exits the roadway and runs into another object, such as a guardrail or a curb
- Un-tripped rollovers: These occur when a vehicle is traveling at a high speed and swerves or makes a sharp turn, causing the vehicle to roll over
- Multi-vehicle accidents: When a vehicle rolls over after being hit by another vehicle
