Rollover Accidents Should Not Happen
All vehicles are supposed to be designed for safety and stability. Vehicles meant primarily to carry passengers — cars and passenger vans — must meet higher safety standards than, for example, delivery vans. One critical design goal is that the vehicle should resist rollover, both in the course of normal operation and in the case of an accident.
Rollover accidents are extremely dangerous for passengers.
- The tremendous force of a rollover accident causes serious neck and spinal cord injury.
- Roof crush or cave-in is a primary cause of serious brain injury.
- Passengers are much more likely to be thrown from the vehicle, resulting in fatal injuries.
Unfortunately, some models of the very popular SUV body type are prone to rollover because of the way they are designed. While these vehicles may have a good restraint system and a strong roof to prevent cave-ins and head injuries, passengers still suffer very serious injuries in SUV rollovers.
