Rollover Accidents and Stability Control
At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin 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. 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 at high risk of rolling over include:
- Nissan Pathfinder
- Ford Explorer
- Chevy Blazer
- Kia Spectra
- Subaru Legacy
- Other large SUVs
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.
Roof Crush Accidents
If cars and trucks are not equipped with a strong roof structure, passengers are vulnerable to serious injuries in rollover accidents. Roof crushes put accident victims at an increased risk of head injuries. Roof crushes may make you eligible to additional injury compensation, and our team is highly experienced in investigating these matters to determine liability.
