Rollover Injury Lawyer

Rollover accidents can be very dangerous to vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of severe injuries and death. Most vehicles are designed to be difficult to roll. Cars and trucks tend to roll only at high speeds or when they veer off roads. However, there are some vehicle designs that can make them more likely to roll, posing a risk of injury to drivers and passengers. In some cases, the manufacturer may be liable for rollover injuries if it is determined that components on the vehicle increased the chance of a rollover accident.

Rollover accidents are not as common as action movies and TV shows portray. Most vehicles are designed to have a low center of gravity, making it difficult for the vehicle to flip. Only when traveling at high speeds can enough velocity be created to roll the vehicle, usually when it hits an object or travels down a slope. When a vehicle rolls while performing standard maneuvers, concerns about design and defects should be considered.

Rollovers Caused by Manufacturer Design and Defects

In 2000, one of the most notorious manufacturer design and defect combinations came to light. The Ford Explorer SUV was involved in hundreds of rollover accidents. Not only was it suspected that the vehicle had too narrow of a wheel base and a high center of gravity, there were problems with the Firestone tires these vehicles used. Premature tire tread separation, a manufacturer defect, combined with a poor safety design of the SUV, caused hundreds of deaths.

Even after the Ford/Firestone rollover accident problems, many vehicles still were designed in a manner that caused them to be top-heavy and easier to roll. Victims of rollover accidents caused by these design flaws have been successful in showing liability by the manufacturers, receiving high payouts for their injuries and losses.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
