We Have a Record of Success in SUV Rollover Cases
Sport utility vehicles (SUVs) have taken over America’s highways. Although these vehicles are often marketed as safer, more versatile, and tougher than regular passenger cars, SUVs have a heightened risk of rolling over. In fact, reports reveal that as many as 220,000 SUV rollovers occur every year in the U.S.
Our Houston SUV rollover attorneys have successfully pursued over 300 rollover cases. Our clients have been hurt by defects in Toyota 4Runners, Ford Explorers, Ford Expeditions, Isuzu Rodeos, and Honda Passport SUVs that cause rollovers, as well as defects that produce or enhance injuries in rollovers.
Our attorneys have successfully pursued roof crush claims involving:
- Ford Explorers
- Chevrolet Suburbans
- Toyota 4-Runners
- Mitsubishi Monteros
- Ford Expeditions
- Isuzu Troopers
- Jeep Grand Cherokees
- Ford Rangers
- 15-passenger vans
In a typical personal injury claim, negligence needs to be shown in order to collect damages. Liability in a product defect case, however, like one involving the product liability of an unsafe SUV, is controlled by strict liability. Strict liability makes a party responsible for damages their actions or products cause regardless of any “fault” on their part. In these cases, the plaintiff does not need to prove that a manufacturer was negligent, only that the vehicle was defective.
Holding Negligent Auto Manufacturers Accountable
While many automobile manufacturers try to deny that roof crushes are common or work to prove that a roof crush rollover accident was not caused by defective auto design, we know that, in many instances, this is simply not the case. When an auto defect results in an accident that causes devastating injuries or the loss of a loved one, our attorneys are ready to help you seek justice and fair compensation.
