Holding Automakers Accountable for Defective Roof Designs
If the roof of your vehicle crushed downward or inward during a rollover accident, there is a very real possibility that this was caused by a design in which the pillars of the roof contain holes to lighten the weight of the vehicle, sacrificing the strength that comes with a closed-pillar design.
Crushed roofs can cause brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic injuries and death in rollovers that would otherwise have resulted in relatively minor injuries.
Automakers know that the roof designs that cause these accidents are dangerous, but they try to justify them by relying on outdated federal safety standards and flawed rollover tests. Our firm is experienced at fighting these defenses.
Our attorneys have a track record of results in roof crush and rollover cases. The auto manufacturers know that we are prepared to take cases to trial and aggressively fight for clients who have been seriously injured and have lost family members as a result of defects in their vehicles.
Identifying the Role of Vehicle Instability in Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents are often attributed to driver error. In reality, however, many vehicles on the road are designed with a dangerous tendency to roll over. In these cases, it is a defect in the stability and handling of the vehicle that causes the vehicle — not the driver — to lose control.
The auto industry has had the tools and know-how for years to improve vehicle handling and stability and reduce rollover accidents. Our firm has significant experience investigating and litigating claims involving unstable vehicles, including a $90 million jury verdict against Suzuki.
