Every day in the United States hundreds of rollover accidents involving SUVs, small trucks and vans occur on our roadways. These accidents often involve injury to the driver and passenger and unfortunately, sometimes even death. Sadly, these accidents are often preventable and are the result of manufacturer defects, including tire failures, poor stability designs, inadequate brakes and other poorly designed systems.

Types Of Preventable SUV Rollovers
When a vehicle is manufactured, it undergoes a series of tests to ensure its safety and road-worthiness. Unfortunately, the vehicle manufacturers often miss key safety points or do not realize the hazards of a certain vehicle aspect until it is too late. With light trucks, small vans and most commonly, SUVs, this can result in a variety of vehicle rollovers, including:
Ramp rollovers – when the design of the vehicle causes a rollover during on-ramp and off-ramp turning
Lateral force rollovers – caused when a vehicle is going too fast around a curve
Side-slop rollovers – this type of rollover is caused by driving in off-road conditions
Sideways skid rollover – caused when the rear tires lose traction and the rollover occurs from hitting the curb
Due to their high center of gravity, SUVs and vans are especially susceptible to vehicle rollovers. For this reason, it is extremely important to drive carefully while operating these types of vehicles. Not all accidents are preventable, however, and that is why the personal injury attorneys at Calahan Law are here to help.
