Though sport utility vehicles, or SUVs, have been marketed as safer vehicles, they can still result in dangerous and sometimes lethal accidents. Thousands of Americans nationwide have fallen victim to SUV wrecks, which can be more dangerous due to these vehicles’ bulky size and the risks and dangers of rollovers. Victims need a reliable, professional SUV accident lawyer to help them, with years of expertise in personal injury and vehicle accident lawsuits. In Texas, there’s a lawyer with more than four decades of experience: Jim Adler.
SUV crashes can have a variety of causes, including reckless driving. But these vehicles also have design flaws that make them more likely to have a crash, including a tendency to have SUV rollovers. They occur in part because the vehicles are designed to be top-heavy and have a narrow wheelbase. Both of these elements can contribute to a rollover if the vehicle tilts during a turn or is struck by another vehicle in a collision.
Such events can cause catastrophic injuries or even death due not only to design defects that lead to rollovers but also to design defects that cause “roof crush” after a rollover. Roof crush means that a vehicle has landed upside down, or on its roof, and the roof collapses beneath the weight of the vehicle, since it lacks a design that can support that weight. Occupants can then be crushed or killed, and even if they survive, they may suffer severe brain damage in the form of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This defective design can make an average collision into a suddenly fatal SUV accident. Attorney Jim Adler knows that faulty equipment leads to the deaths of Americans every day, and SUVs are no exception.
Indeed, even though SUV rollovers accounted for just three percent of all United States traffic accidents in a recent year, those same rollovers accounted for almost 33 percent of all U.S. vehicle occupant fatalities. Clearly, SUV accidents are especially damaging to victims. In fact, statistics show that a person riding in an SUV is three times more likely to die in a rollover crash than a person riding in a normal passenger car.
Clearly, this is a special form of traffic accident, one that causes far more suffering for innocent Americans due to the very nature of an SUV.
