Houston Based SUV Rollover Attorneys
Unfortunately, the incredible increase in popularity of trucks and SUVs has come with a hefty price. SUV rollover accidents cause serious injuries and claim the lives of thousands every year. According to estimates, there are hundreds of light truck and SUV rollover accidents every day in the United States. Due to the high center of gravity, light trucks and SUVs are more likely to rollover than typical cars. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says SUVs are 75% more likely to be involved in a rollover crash than traditional sedans. Statistics show that people in rollover accidents are more likely to suffer from fatal or catastrophic injuries. Typically, rollover accidents are compounded with the added danger of roof crush injuries. Roof crush injuries occur when the roof crushes the vehicle's passenger compartment causing serious injuries such as a spinal cord injury, like paraplegia or quadriplegia, as well as brain injuries. Moreover, people in rollover crashes are more likely to die than people in car crashes.
The types of rollover injury we handle include the following SUVs:

According to the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are over 220,000 rollover accidents per year in the United States. Sadly, these rollover crashes claim peoples lives at alarming rates. There have been over 500 rollover lawsuits against Ford for Ford Explorer Rollover accidents.
