Orlando Rollover Accident Attorney
The SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) became extremely popular in the 1990s. This popularity boosted sales and encouraged car manufacturers to quickly manufacture SUVs. Car manufacturers did not pay adequate attention to the safety features of SUVs during this time because they were more interested in a quick turnaround time and quick sale.
SUVs were originally created for off-road use and recreation. They were not originally designed to be a family car driven in cities and towns. Over time, car manufacturers change the design of SUVs to fit into suburban driving situations. However, some SUVs still do not have very good performance ratings and a rollover can still result if an SUV accident occurs.
An SUV rollover accident can result in devastating devastating injuries, including paralysis and death. You will want to contact an SUV Rollover Accident Lawyer immediately following your accident to discuss your rights and file your claim. Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D. is a lawyer who is also a doctor and understands the complexity of injuries associated with SUV accidents.
SUVS AND SAFETY
SUVs are taller, narrower, and have a higher center of gravity than passenger vehicles. The body type of an SUV makes it more prone to roll over accidents than any other type of vehicle. SUVs are three times more likely to roll over than passenger vehicles according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Because of the high center of gravity and the narrow body, SUVs are very easy to roll when they are steered hard in one direction to avoid an accident. Swerving to avoid hitting another vehicle or an object in the road will apply just enough force to tip the SUV in the direction of the swerve. With the lack of a roll bar and the presence of weak roof, passengers and drivers of SUVs are very likely to suffer a personal injury.
