Help from a los angeles car accident lawyer
Some popular vehicle models—particularly sport utility vehicles—are more likely to rollover or flip in certain situations because they have a high center of gravity or “top heavy” design. For example, studies have demonstrated that an accident involving a Ford Explorer SUV is 16 times more likely to result in a fatality than a similar accident involving an average family vehicle.
Consider the fact that of 9.1 million auto accidents in 2010, only 2.1% involved a rollover—yet accidents involving rollovers accounted for nearly 35% of total traffic fatalities for passenger vehicles. Rollovers are over 10 times more likely to result in a fatal crash. These disproportionate numbers are alarming and illustrate a need for better automobile safety standards and accountability on the part of car manufacturers.
Rollover crashes are associated with a few common factors, primarily speed and tire quality. What usually leads to a rollover crash is when a vehicle attempts to make an emergency maneuver at speeds over 55 mph, overcompensating and striking a low obstacle that causes it to “trip” and roll over. Federal statistics report that 95% of rollover crashes involve a “trip obstacle,” but critics believe this number is far too high.
Accidents that are reported as caused by “trips” make no differentiation between tires defects and obstacles apart from the car–thus, critics believe that there may be a higher incidence of car design causing rollovers rather than driver error or road conditions. As a result, automakers are less likely to held responsible.
