New York, New Jersey and Nationwide
As a survivor of an SUV rollover, you know how difficult it can be to move forward after such a terrifying experience. Rollovers account for one third of all motor vehicle deaths, but make up only three percent of all motor vehicle crashes. With such high fatality rates, the auto industry is being challenged by individuals like you to change their safety requirements for SUVs, and thousands of individuals are seeking reparations for injuries and damages that could have been prevented with better product safety.
The experienced attorneys at Morelli Ratner PC link to firm bio will fight for justice and fair compensation if you or a loved one has been injured in an SUV rollover accident.
Manufacturers Can Reduce SUV Rollovers
Since the 1970s, automakers have been able to influence the creation of vehicle safety laws to their own benefit. Known safety issues have been side barred on political agendas by large companies, while consumers continue to suffer from product development cost cuts and hidden clauses.
Recent studies by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety have shown that requiring auto manufacturers to lower some SUVs as little as a half inch has dramatically decreased the rollover rate of those SUVs. While many SUVs have high safety ratings for certain types of crashes, rollovers are inherently much more dangerous. Simple steps like attaching an impact-absorbing bar beneath bumpers have shown improvements of up to one-half fewer SUV rollovers.
Whether your SUV rollover occurred because of a side collision or independently, your rollover may have been preventable through better safety regulations. If you have experienced an SUV rollover, discussing your accident with a qualified personal injury attorney can help you determine what your next course of action should be.
