(813) 254-7119 Roof Crush

Roof Crush Injury Lawyer

A rollover accident can be deadly if the roof of the vehicle does not withstand the pressure of the vehicle as it rolls. There are specific safety and design standards that vehicle manufacturers are required to meet. These requirements ensure their vehicles protect occupants during a collision, including rollover accidents. When the roof structure is weak, it can crush and endanger the head and neck of occupants, creating a higher risk of severe injuries and death. You may have an auto products liability case!

All vehicles must meet certain crashworthiness criteria before they can be sold to consumers. One of these metrics is roof crush resistance. When a vehicle rolls onto its roof, the entire weight of the vehicle and its occupants is put on the roof. While a certain amount of “crushing” is expected, the roof should be able to withstand the weight without crushing more than a few inches. This protects the occupants and can prevent serious injuries to the head, neck and spine during a rollover accident.

Poor Roof Designs

Unfortunately, even with testing for safety, some vehicles have been designed with poor roof designs and were sold to unsuspecting consumers. They can seem perfectly safe and may never cause an injury, as long as they are not involved in a rollover accident. However, there are vehicles that have seriously injured occupants due to the roof crushing during a rollover accident. These injuries should have been prevented with a better roof structure design.

At Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law, we are always on the side of our clients and strive to ensure they receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries.

Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori.

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!
