New York Roll Over Accident Lawyer
Most often, vehicles roll over in a crash because they have a high center of gravity.
Vehicles that are tall or narrow such as SUVs and passenger vans tend to be more prone to rollovers than a car because the high center of gravity makes them less stable. So when an SUV or passenger van swerves, has a tire blowout, hits a curb, speeds around a turn, or is hit from the side by another vehicle, there’s a greater tendency to roll than there is for smaller, more stable vehicles.
Many traffic safety experts also argue that there are inherent design flaws in the way SUVs are constructed that make them more prone to roll — and for the people inside to suffer greater injuries when the vehicles roll. Perhaps the most serious of these flaws is that the vehicle roof may collapse when the SUV flips, leaving the people inside vulnerable to serious head injuries or fatalities.
Not only may the people inside be hurt, but when a vehicle flips on a city street, innocent bystanders such as pedestrians or cyclists also may be injured when caught unaware by a rollover crash.
