Los Angeles SUV Rollover Accident Attorney
Insurance industry statistics show that people in most SUV's have higher death rates in single-vehicle accidents then people in average cars. This is mostly due to higher incidents of vehicle rollover.
Rollover crashes often occur when a vehicle is tripped by a ditch, curb, soft soil, or other object, usually when it has run off the road. This "tripping" mechanism causes the vehicle to rollover. A major factor in serious rollover accidents is the relative lack of stability of each vehicle. NHTSA (The National Highway Transportation Safety Association) have reported that taller, narrower vehicles such as sport utility vehicles are more likely to roll once they leave the roadway.
According to NHTSA rollovers, although infrequent, often lead to serious injury or death. The fatalities from rollover crashes number around 10,000 on a yearly basis. It has been reported that nearly 40% of these fatalities involve SUV rollover.
The most infamously known cases of defective tires was the Firestone recall of August of 2000, as a result of which 14 million tires sold in the United States were recalled. Defective manufacturing caused belt separation in the tire which in turn causing tire blow outs and loss of control over the vehicle. The ensuing crashes often led to catastrophic injury and death. Tire separation accidents continue to occur to this day, involving more than one tire manufacturer.
