Roof Crush and Rollover Defects
Arkansas Roof Crush & Rollover Accident Attorneys
Every year, thousands of people suffer serious physical injuries or are killed in rollover car accidents. Often, injuries and fatalities in rollover car accidents are because of “Roof Crush”. When the roof of a car crushes and intrudes too far into the passenger area during a rollover, it forces the doors and windows to break, which limits headroom. That reduction of space causes passengers to hit the vehicle’s roof. When a passenger or driver hits their head on the roof, serious injury or death may occur.
The violent manner in which rollover accidents and roof crush accidents occur usually result in injuries to a person’s head or brain, spinal injuries (including paralysis), permanent disfigurement, and death. There are specific design and safety standards targeted at preventing these types of devastating injuries. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) directs manufacturers as to the weight and force car roofs must be able to withstand during testing to meet safety standard minimums. Unfortunately, sometimes vehicle manufacturers fail to meet these standards. Car manufacturers that defectively design or build a car roof can be held responsible and liable for injuries or fatalities that occurred.
