We Help People Injured In SUV Rollover Accidents
Many people buy SUV’s thinking they are safer than cars. Although the risk of injury in an SUV accident with another vehicle may be less than that of cars, the risk of a rollover involving an SUV is much higher. Some studies show that SUV’s are twice as likely to flip over in an accident.
At The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, we help people who have been injured in SUV rollover accidents throughout Northern Virginia . If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident resulting in a rollover, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to help you obtain maximum financial compensation.
Are SUV’s Safer Than Cars?
Not necessarily. Although an SUV crash will generally result in fewer injuries for drivers and passengers, an SUV is much more likely to tip and roll over, and it carries the potential to eject the passengers.
Most SUV manufacturers are well aware that their vehicles are prone to rollovers. However, their main concern is making a profit — not taking extra precautions to ensure vehicle safety.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has a system for classifying SUV rollover rates. At The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, we know what SUV models have received the lowest rollover ratings, and are ready to help people who have been in accidents involving these vehicles.
