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.
Pursuing Rightful Compensation in Florida
Different parties may be held liable in the event of a Florida SUV accident. In some cases, the manufacturer of the vehicle or of an auto part may be responsible for the accident due to a design or manufacturing defect that caused the vehicle to malfunction and become involved in an accident or rollover. More often, however, SUV accidents are caused due to negligence on the part of a driver. Eating, talking on the cell phone, drinking and driving, adjusting the radio and weariness are all potential causes of auto accidents.
In these situations, the negligent driver should be held liable for your injuries.
