Factors Contributing to SUV Rollover Accidents Claims

In relation to other vehicles, SUVs are typically constructed with a narrow track width, heavier weight load, and high center of gravity. These factors make SUVs more prone to rollover incidents, especially when a driver makes a turn or a correction that suddenly pulls the steering wheel in one direction or another.

This tendency for SUVs to roll over places drivers, passengers, and other motorists at risk for catastrophic injury or wrongful death. Some SUV models have been found to have structural problems that may contribute to SUV rollovers and the danger these accidents pose to passengers and other motorists. These problems include:

  • Poor roof design: Many SUVs lack the structural strength to prevent roof collapse when a vehicle rolls over. This can severely compromise the safety of the passengers.
  • Tread separation: Tread separation problems occurred with some Ford Explorer models equipped with Firestone® tires. As the tread separates and the tire blows out, drivers lose control of their vehicle, increasing the risk of rollover accidents.
  • Defective door latches: Rollover accidents are particularly dangerous in SUVs with defective door latches. When the vehicle rolls, the doors can open, putting drivers and passengers at risk of ejection.
  • Lack of safety glass: Some SUVs do not have laminated safety glass, which can make passenger ejection during a rollover much more likely.
