    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.

    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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
