Are Certain Automobile Vehicles More Likely to Experience Rollover Crashes?
Unfortunately, we can’t quite determine whether certain vehicles are more likely to be overturned during a crash than others. Certainly, if there was a vehicle defect then a certain vehicle model might be at a higher risk than others. Nevertheless, it is known that certain vehicle types can have higher fatalities than others when they are involved in a rollover crash. In fact, in 2018, IIHS found that SUV and pickup-truck occupants are more likely to die from a rollover crash than car occupants. Although the cause of this has yet to be determined, you may have reasonable cause to suspect a vehicle defect if you believe that you were driving safely. You should know that you can file a product liability claim if you choose to pursue legal action. If you’d like to discuss this further with our legal counsel, call us at (877) 871-3265.
