Roof Crush Rollover Accidents

Houston Rollover Accident Attorneys

Over $1 Billion Recovered for Clients Across the Nation

“Crashworthiness” is an automotive industry term that refers to the ability of a vehicle to withstand a certain level of impact in a collision. In a rollover accident, one important part of a vehicle that must be sufficiently crashworthy is the roof.

When a vehicle’s roof is not designed to remain intact in the event of a rollover accident, the vehicles’ occupants are at a high risk of serious injury or death from the roof crushing in on them. While any type of vehicle should be designed to the highest possible safety standards, roof crush rollover accidents are of particular concern in pickup trucks and SUVs.

Our roof crush attorneys at The Ammons Law Firm have handled many SUV and pickup truck rollover cases in Texas and throughout the country. We know how to properly prepare auto defect claims and how to work with investigators and the latest technology to prove your case.

Common Injuries Caused by Rollover Accidents

Generally speaking, there are two primary types of injuries victims can sustain in rollover accidents: roof crush injuries and ejection injuries, which occur when the occupant is thrown from the vehicle, often as a result of seat belt failures.

Victims often suffer catastrophic and life-threatening injuries, such as:

The impact of these injuries is often immense, taking a toll on the physical, emotional, and financial well-being of victims. At The Ammons Law Firm, we understand the difficulties you face. Our Houston rollover accident lawyers are committed to fighting for maximum compensation.

Were You Injured in a Pickup Truck Rollover Accident?

Due to the high profit margins derived from truck sales, many auto manufacturers have aggressively marketed pickups as rugged, versatile, and safe. In reality, each year nearly 220,000 rollover crashes occur in the United States because of auto defects. Many of these accidents involve pickup trucks.

Our Houston pickup truck rollover accident attorneys are committed to holding negligent manufacturers accountable and seeking fair compensation for injured victims and their loved ones. Since 2004, our firm has secured more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts on behalf of victims of negligence. Much of our practice focuses on auto defect litigation, including cases involving roof crush rollover accidents.

A Few Examples of Our Past Successes:

  • A successful case against Ford on behalf of the family of a man killed in an F250 rollover accident

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.
