Thoughts on fatal rollover collisions

Deadly crashes are always troubling and heartbreaking. No one expects to take a drive and to die on the road, never to return to their family. Whenever someone loses their life on our roadways, especially in a rollover crash, a thorough investigation must take place to determine whether the death could have been prevented. This is the least that can be done for the deceased.

In rollover accidents, the burning question is whether the vehicle adequately protects its occupants. While not all rollover crashes are survivable, proper safety precautions, such as using seatbelts, significantly reduce the likelihood of fatalities among occupants. If occupants use their seatbelts but the vehicle fails to offer sufficient protection, the car may have a defect, and the manufacturer may be held accountable for any injuries occupants suffer.

As we await the facts to continue to pour out, my thoughts are with the deceased’s surviving family.
