Northern California Auto Crash Attorneys
SUV Rollover and Crash Worthiness Failure
Do not sign any papers or hand your vehicle over to the insurance company after a SUV rollover accident. Your vehicle is your best — and possibly only — evidence of the extent to which faulty design caused or contributed to your injury or the loss of a loved one. Instead, contact a lawyer who can protect your right to recovery.
Even with rising gas prices, SUVs continue to be popular on California roads and highways. Due to these vehicles' high center of gravity, SUVs have a greater tendency to be involved in rollover accidents than many other passenger cars.
The Northern California personal injury trial attorneys of Carcione Cattermole Dolinski offers sound legal advice and experienced representation to the injured survivors of SUV rollover and roof crush accidents and to families who have lost a loved due to auto design defect.
If you would like to discuss your legal options for seeking maximum financial recovery after an SUV rollover, please contact us today to receive a free case evaluation.
The Truth About SUV Rollover, Roof Crush and Crash Worthiness
Simply because a vehicle like an SUV is vulnerable to rollover in an accident or when the driver loses control when avoiding a collision or due to dangerous road conditions, this may not be enough to justify a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
However, manufacturers understand this design vulnerability. Some have implemented design improvements that improve vehicle stability and increase occupant safety in the event that an SUV rolls over. Others seem to have decided that financial expediency is more important than the prevention of serious and life-changing injury in an SUV rollover and roof crush accident, such as:
- Head injury and damage to the brain
- Spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis
- Back or neck injury such as compressed or herniated discs in the cervical or thoracic spine
When an automobile manufacturer decides that it would rather risk passengers than profits, we stand firm by those who have been injured by this callous disregard. For over 25 years, Carcione Cattermole Dolinski has been a leading force in the prosecution of product liability litigation against negligent manufacturers and distributors.
