Injured in an SUV rollover accident, you may deserve compensation!
Are SUVs safe? Or are manufacturers at fault for poor design?
Sport utility vehicles (SUVs) are a popular alternative to traditional passenger cars based on their cargo space, ability to comfortably transport a large number of people, and general size. While some motorists believe that bigger is better when it comes to vehicles, particularly that a larger vehicle will provide a safer confine in the event of a traffic accident, there are design characteristics belonging to SUVs that make them even more dangerous than traditional passenger cars in some regards. Though motorists may in fact be safer while driving a larger vehicle in the event of an accident, such increased safety is in fact overshadowed by the increased probability of rollover and loss of control that may occur during such an accident.
A high center of gravity in SUVs is a product liability accident waiting to happen.
Because of their high centers of gravity, SUVs have a higher propensity for rolling over in traffic accidents. As opposed to smaller passenger cars that are closer to the ground, SUVs cannot handle turns as well. Both of these characteristics greatly inhibit a motorist from being absolutely safe while operating an SUV. In inclement weather especially, when roads are slippery and traction is difficult to maintain, SUVs are particularly dangerous.
While such dangers have been brought to the attention of SUV manufacturers, those manufacturers can still be held liable for damages resulting from accidents caused by a design flaw in the SUV. Auto product liability is an issue that affects a large number of people every year, and those responsible for design flaws need to at the very least inform consumers of the dangers to ensure that proper safety measures can be taken to help prevent accident and injury.
