Vehicle Rollover Accidents
Vehicle rollovers count for the highest percentage of serious injuries and deaths of all motor vehicle accidents in the country. Most rollovers occur to sport utility vehicles (SUVs), minivans, light trucks and passenger vans because of their higher center of gravity and narrower track width.
Manufacturers have known for years of the increased likelihood of SUVs to roll when drivers make evasive maneuvers or when they are involved in T-bone type crashes. Even when seat belted, vehicle occupants are subject to excessive roof crush because of inadequate roof design in SUVs, trucks and vans. Roof crush injuries are almost always serious, and may involve neck fractures and paralysis.
For years, motor vehicle manufacturers have taken the position that they only need to meet minimum governmental standards that do not provide adequate occupant protection in real-world rollover and crash situations.
