Los Angeles SUV Rollover AttorneysSUV Rollovers
Although rollovers are the least common type of auto accidents they can be extremely dangerous and have a high fatality rate due to the severe nature of the accident. Most rollovers occur in sport utility vehicles (SUVs) whose chance of rollover is 2 to 3 times that of a regular passenger car. An estimated 90% of rollovers occur when a vehicle leaves the pavement and travels onto the shoulder or the road into a ditch or ravine.
SUV rollover may not be the fault of the driver at all. Some SUV are top heavy and are ill-equipped to handle evasive maneuvers such as sudden braking or swerving to avoid an accident. The momentum of the heavy vehicle may turn a simple high-speed evasive maneuver into a rollover with severe injury and even death. There may also be a defect in the vehicle itself, such as faulty brakes, tire tread failure or poor construction and distribution of weight, making the SUV that much more inclined to roll over.
