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
- 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.
Were You Injured in a 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.

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:
- 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.
