Commentary on the Rollover Accident in Allen County, Indiana
Rollover crashes are one of the leading causes of death in vehicle-related accidents. Given the serious risk associated with blunt-force impact occupants sustain during the rollover sequence, considerable research has been conducted to reduce the risk of injury in such crashes. However, despite this research and the associated advancements in technology, rollover accidents continue to plague our roadways and communities.
My firm specializes in product defect law. Because of the highly technical nature of manufacturing, my specialty takes me across the nation representing victims that have sustained serious injury or death caused by poorly designed products. In auto-manufacturer cases, poorly designed restraint systems, airbags, and roof structures are the primary points of contention. It is difficult to determine whether a deficiency in these areas played a role in Mr. Call’s untimely death with the available details. A comprehensive investigation by trained professionals will need to be conducted to determine if the outcome of this accident could have been prevented.
I extend my heartfelt condolences to the family left behind and hope for their solace during the difficult road ahead.
