The vehicle manufacturer may be responsible to compensate injuries in rollover accidents

However, manufacturing defects can affect the ability of cars to withstand rollover crashes and may cause rollover crashes in the first place. If a manufacturing defect caused or contributed to the injuries sustained in this accident. Those impacted here may be able to recover any needed compensation from the manufacturer.

Manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that their products are designed with safety in mind and undergo processes to minimize the risk of injury in an accident.
