New Jersey SUV Rollovers

Posted March 25th, 2013 by .

Categories: Auto Accidents.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, SUVs are 75 percent more likely to be involved in rollover accidents than smaller vehicles. Sadly, rollover accidents often result in catastrophic personal injury such as spinal cord and brain damage. They may also result in death.

Many SUV rollovers are not the fault of drivers, but caused by manufacturing or design defects inherent in these top-heavy vehicles. If you or a loved one has been involved in an SUV rollover, New Jersey auto accident lawyer Anthony Carbone can conduct a thorough investigation to determine its cause and fight to get you the compensation you will need to recover.

Most Dangerous SUVs

SUV rollovers account for over 30 percent of all fatal auto accidents. Some of these occur even when no other vehicles are involved. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the most dangerous SUVs are:

  • Nissan – Titan crew cab and extended cab
  • Chevrolet – Aveo and Cobalt
  • Kia – Spectra and Rio
  • Hyundai – Tiburon

While electronic stability control is required in all SUVs manufactured after 2011, older SUVs are still more likely to rollover and cause serious injury. No matter what type of SUV you were in, if it rolled over and you were injured, Mr. Carbone can take your case and help you get the compensation you are due.
