SUV Rollover Accident Attorneys in Houston
Skilled Legal Representation for Clients across the United States
The Toyota 4Runner, Ford Explorer, Ford Expedition, Isuzu Rodeo, and Honda Passport are all examples of sport utility vehicles (SUVs) that have taken over America’s highways. Although these vehicle are often marketed as safer, more versatile, and tougher than regular passenger cars, SUVs actually have a heightened risk of rollover accidents. In fact, some reports reveal that as many as 220,000 SUV rollovers occur every year in the United States, many of which lad to devastating injuries and even fatalities.

Our clients have been hurt by defects in Toyota 4Runners, Ford Explorers, Ford Expeditions, Isuzu Rodeos, and Honda Passport SUVs that cause rollover accidents, as well as defects that produce or enhance injuries in rollovers.

Greater Risk of Fatalities in SUV Rollover Accidents
Our SUV rollover lawyers have learned people driving or riding in SUVs are more likely to die in an accident than people in cars. The main reason for the safety gap in SUV and car fatalities is that SUVs are more likely to flip or roll over, causing severe injury and/or death.
When a rollover occurs, the occupants face additional dangers from weak roof supports that crush or collapse, seatbelts that fail to provide proper restraint, and window glass that breaks and permits partial or full ejection. In fact, in a 2003 NHTSA report, not a single SUV earned the highest government safety rating.
Our SUV rollover lawyers believe makers of SUVs can and should be held responsible for the injuries or deaths that occur as a result of these rollover accidents because of weak roof structures and safety restraint system failures.

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.
