Rollovers Caused by Defects

Trucks and SUVs are indispensible vehicles for many who have to carry around large amounts of cargo or tow trailers or boats. While these vehicles are incredibly useful and practical, their tall design and high ground clearance make them highly susceptible to rollover accidents. Although modern technology has aimed to offset the probability of rollovers in these cars, no technology can defy the laws of physics. Furthermore, occasional defects in the safety systems of these vehicles or flaws in the design and manufacturing greatly increase the likelihood of a rollover accident occurring. Unfortunately, when one of these vehicles contains a defect in some shape or form, rollovers are quite possible, something our legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® in Rhinelander is all too aware of.

Possible Defects that Can Cause Rollovers

The following list describes possible defects that could increase the chances of a vehicle rolling over:

  • Tire problems: tires with tread issues may result in your car’s stopping distance being greatly increased or cause a rollover
  • Brake issues: problems with brake pads or rotors may cause instability during hard braking
  • Construction flaw: weak spots in the vehicle’s frame may cause instability during high-speed turns and hard braking, resulting in roof crushes during a rollover
  • Design defect: flaws in the vehicle’s design may cause the car to behave erratically during certain road conditions

If you believe one of these defects caused your rollover accident, you should find out more about your legal options.
