Stability Control Attorney in New York City
Electronic stability control (ESC) systems were widely available by 2004. Despite that fact, there are millions of automobiles on the road that do not have this essential safety feature and are a risk to drivers and passengers who get injured in rollover accidents. If you or someone close to you has been injured due to lack of ESC, the knowledgeable New York product liability lawyers at Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP are here to help you explore your legal options.

Rollover Accidents and Stability Control
At Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP, we handle a wide range of auto products liability cases, including those involving automotive crashworthiness and lack of electronic stability control. We represent injury victims as well as those who have lost loved ones in fatal accidents.
Cars and trucks with a narrow track width and high center of gravity are especially prone to rollover accidents. The Ford Explorer, Chevy Blazer, other SUVs and 15-person passenger vans are common examples of vehicles known to have a higher rollover risk. Some of these accidents are the result of collisions or encounters with road obstructions, but some rollovers are "untripped" and the result of the car simply changing direction. Cars equipped with electronic stability control are much more likely to maintain control and not rollover in such situations. If your accident was due to faulty auto design, you may pursue monetary compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other economic hardships your injuries have forced you to face.
Victims of rollover accidents can suffer serious head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and wrongful death. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling cases involving auto crashworthiness and stability control. We have access to a network of expert witnesses in engineering, crashworthiness, automobile design and other relevant fields. They help us investigate these cases and build compelling cases for our clients.
