Rollover Accidents

Car, Truck & SUV Rollover Accident Attorneys

If you were involved in a rollover accident and suffered serious injuries, it is important to determine whether your vehicle is defective. If your vehicle is defective, you can bring a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer and recover compensation for your injuries. At The Ammons Law Firm, our Houston auto defect attorneys have handled hundreds of rollover accident cases and have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of clients injured in rollover crashes. Call our Houston rollover accident lawyers today if you or a family member were injured in a rollover accident and want to determine if your vehicle provided adequate protection.

When a vehicle’s roof is not designed to withstand the force of a rollover accident, the occupants of the vehicle are at a higher 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.

Proving a vehicle’s roof was defective and failed to provide adequate protection in a rollover crash is a difficult area of the law. Most personal injury law firms do not have the skill, knowledge, and resources to effectively handle these types of cases and must rely on firms that focus on roof crush rollover lawsuits to prove liability in your lawsuit. At The Ammons Law Firm, our rollover accident attorneys have handled roof crush claims for over two decades and have successfully recovered millions of dollars for clients injured and killed in rollover crashes. This is what we do, and the manufacturers know our firm.

If you or a family member were injured in a rollover accident, it is important to have your accident investigated by a trained rollover accident attorney who can determine whether the vehicle was designed to provide adequate protection in a rollover crash. If the vehicle proves defective, you can seek compensation for your harm by bringing a personal injury lawsuit against the auto manufacturer.

If you or a loved one were injured or killed in a rollover accident, call our Houston rollover accident attorneys or contact us online for a free consultation. You are never charged a fee unless we win your case. 

Common Rollover Accidents Our Attorneys Handle

  • Ford Rollover Crashes

    Ford rollover accidents have been a significant concern for both consumers and automotive safety advocates. Historically, certain models of Ford SUVs and trucks have faced scrutiny due to their susceptibility to rollover accidents, particularly during emergency maneuvers or high-speed turns. One notable case involved the Ford Explorer, which garnered attention for its high center of gravity and narrow track width, factors that contributed to its tendency to roll over in certain situations. While Ford has implemented various design modifications and safety enhancements over the years to address these concerns, rollover accidents involving Ford vehicles continue to occur, albeit at lower rates than in the past.

    Rollover accidents involving Ford vehicles can result in severe injuries or fatalities due to the violent nature of these incidents. When a vehicle rolls over, occupants may be subjected to forces exceeding several times the force of gravity, leading to ejection from the vehicle or crushing injuries as the roof collapses. Despite advancements in vehicle safety technology, such as electronic stability control and side curtain airbags, mitigating the risk of rollover accidents remains a challenge for automakers like Ford. As such, ongoing efforts to improve vehicle design, enhance safety features, and educate consumers about safe driving practices are essential in reducing the occurrence and severity of Ford rollover accidents.

  • Ford F-250 & F-350 Death Wobble

    The “death wobble” is a concerning shaking that happens to the front end of many Ford F250 and F350 Super Duty trucks. It usually starts when the trucks are going faster than 50 miles per hour or after they hit bumps on the road. When it happens, drivers have to quickly slow down or stop their trucks to make the shaking stop. But slowing down fast on busy roads can be dangerous for everyone, as it puts both the people in the truck and other cars at risk of accidents.

    Over 1,200 drivers of Ford trucks have told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about this problem. Many have shared stories of losing control of their trucks because of the shaking. Some of these accidents have even caused serious injuries. Lawyers are helping those who have been hurt by this issue. If you own one of these trucks and it has this problem, it’s important to tell the NHTSA about it. More complaints could lead Ford to issue recalls for these trucks, making them safer for everyone on the road.

  • Chevy Rollover Crashes

    Chevrolet rollover crashes have been a significant concern within the automotive industry, particularly in the context of certain models of Chevrolet SUVs and trucks. While Chevrolet vehicles are generally renowned for their performance and reliability, some models have faced scrutiny due to their susceptibility to rollover accidents. Factors such as a higher center of gravity and narrower track width, especially in older models, have contributed to an increased risk of rollover during sudden maneuvers or sharp turns. One notable example is the Chevrolet Tahoe, which, despite its popularity and utility, has been involved in rollover accidents, prompting safety investigations and design modifications by Chevrolet.

    Rollover accidents involving Chevrolet vehicles can lead to severe injuries or fatalities, posing a significant safety concern for occupants and other road users. The dynamics of a rollover crash often result in occupants being subjected to violent forces, increasing the likelihood of ejection from the vehicle or injuries caused by roof collapse. While advancements in vehicle safety technology, including electronic stability control and rollover mitigation systems, have helped mitigate the risk of rollover accidents in newer Chevrolet models, the issue remains a focal point for ongoing safety improvements within the automotive industry. Continued efforts to enhance vehicle design, implement advanced safety features, and promote safe driving practices are crucial in reducing the frequency and severity of Chevrolet rollover crashes

  • GMC Rollover Crashes

    GMC rollover crashes can be very dangerous for people inside and outside the vehicle. Some GMC SUVs and trucks might be more likely to roll over, especially during sudden turns or when going fast, because they are taller and not as wide. When a rollover happens, people inside can get thrown out of the vehicle or get hurt badly if the roof collapses. Even though GMC vehicles have safety features to help prevent rollovers, like electronic stability control, these accidents remind us that it’s important to keep working on making cars safer and to drive carefully to avoid GMC rollover crashes.

  • Nissan SUV Rollover Accidents

    Nissan rollover accidents can pose significant risks due to design factors inherent in certain SUV models, such as the Nissan Pathfinder. Like many SUVs, the Pathfinder features a narrow wheelbase and a high center of gravity, which increase the likelihood of rollovers, especially during evasive maneuvers. This design can make it challenging for drivers to maintain control, leading to single-vehicle rollover accidents. For instance, the Nissan Pathfinder’s construction may result in excessive upward and rearward movement of the steering wheel, according to IIHS reviews. Additionally, during rebound, occupants may face head impacts against structural components like the B-pillar, exacerbating the potential for injuries in rollover incidents.

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:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones

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.

Our Houston Rollover Accident Attorneys Have a Record of Success

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:

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.
