Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) are among the most accident-prone automobiles on the road today. Their poor design, with untenable high center of gravity and narrow wheel base, combined with the propensity of their owners to load them to maximum capacity with gear of all types at the encouragement of the manufacturer, is a recipe for disaster.

Faulty Manufacturing Can Lead to Crushed SUV Roofs

SUV manufacturers, despite being aware of the high rollover risk and vehicle weights, continue to refuse to add protective rollover bars to the designs of SUV models. Therefore, roof crushing may occur during an accident. This results in severe injuries and sometimes death for occupants of these vehicles. The IIHS does tests to determine roof strength and the results are frequently dismal.

Liability Matters in SUV Rollover Accidents

When a rollover accident results in a crushed roof, the at-fault party tends to be the automobile manufacturer, because the roof was not made strong enough to support the vehicle. Some liability may also belong to the driver of the SUV in certain circumstances. Our law office has the experience and expertise to determine where to place liability.

Vehicles have safety-tested weight limits and it is up to each vehicle owner to be aware of the carrying capacity and not exceed that limit. For accidents involving an SUV, we can also determine whether that vehicle carried a load beyond its safe hauling capacity.
