Thoughts on the Garrison, New York, Rollover Crash

When rollover accidents happen, it is important to determine what caused the crash and what caused the injuries. This is because the vehicle you are driving should protect you in a foreseeable crash, not cause you injuries or make your injuries more serious.

When seatbelts do not restrain, airbags do not deploy, and roofs crush in or collapse, people suffer injuries that otherwise would not have been suffered. In legal terms, these vehicles are defective.

While manufacturers have a responsibility to make vehicles that are free from defects, some manufacturers fail to do this. When this happens, the manufacturer should be held responsible for its wrongdoing.

Trained professionals will need to investigate this accident to determine if the vehicle involved in this rollover crash provided sufficient protection to the occupants. If the injuries suffered by those here prove to have been caused by defects in the vehicle, the manufacturer should compensate the injured for their harm.
