Machine: When Vehicle Flaws Cause Automobile And SUV Rollovers And Other Accidents

While rollovers represent only about 3% of all crashes in the United States, they represent more than 30% of highway deaths, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Investigations often show that defective car parts were strong contributing factors.

About The Accidents, The Auto Parts And The Injuries

SUV rollover and crossover accidents, as well as rollovers and crossovers involving other types of cars and trucks, are common causes of serious and catastrophic injuries to occupants of motor vehicles.

When a 15-passenger van rolls over, an investigation often reveals that defective vehicle components were the cause.

When a roof gets crushed, injuries are often catastrophic.

When a car catches on fire, occupants are in great danger.

When someone is ejected from a car in a crash, death is much more likely than in other types of accidents in which car occupants remain in their cars, protected by the car’s body.

When car parts are defective and cause accidents, it is important to discover whether the manufacturer, vendor or installer was aware of the dangers such as those described below and failed to prevent harm.

  • When tires are defective and cause crashes, the tire manufacturer or installer may be held responsible.
  • When a seat belt is defective and someone’s injuries are worse as a result, the car manufacturer should be held accountable.
  • Seatback defects are a common cause of catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord injuries.
  • Glass defects can result in ejection and other types of injury scenarios.
  • Door latch defects also cause ejection in some cases.
  • Child restraint defects should be investigated when a child has been injured.
