SUV Rollover Accidents
SUVs are frequently advertised as safe, family-friendly vehicles. Unfortunately,
certain models and particular SUVs with specific auto parts may be at
risk of becoming involved in
rollover accidents. SUV rollovers are one of the most serious types of auto accidents that
involve sport utility vehicles. In a rollover accident, the vehicle may
tip over on its side or may roll over completely, causing serious damage
to the vehicle and most often
catastrophic injuries to the passengers.
Because a SUV has a high center of gravity, when making a sharp turn or
making an emergency maneuver to avoid an accident the vehicle may tip
over on one side or may roll over completely.
