(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.

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. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

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.
