NEW YORK CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

SUV Rollover Accidents

Our New York car accident attorneys know that driving a sport utility vehicle (SUV) dramatically increases the risk of suffering an injury in a rollover accident. Due to the elevated height of SUVs, these vehicles possess a higher center of gravity and are significantly more likely to roll over in an accident. In many instances, an SUV rolling over in an accident is due to negligent manufacturing. As a result, a driver who has suffered injuries in a rollover accident may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the vehicle.

At Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP, our car accident attorneys have experience handling cases where an SUV rolled over and resulted in a passenger's injury. Our car accident lawyers understand how to prove liability in these types of cases and are committed to helping secure our clients the compensation they deserve. As a result, we pursue maximum compensation for all of our clients.

Did Negligence Cause Your Rollover Accident?

While SUVs are more prone to rollovers than other vehicles, they are designed to remain upright. Furthermore, car manufacturers implement safety features in SUVs intended to prevent passengers from getting injured should their car roll over. The manufacturers may have acted negligently if any of the following caused the accident or injury:

  • The SUV's manufacturer failed to install a roll cage
  • Airbags failed to deploy
  • Faulty seats
  • Seatbelts failed to hold passengers
  • The manufacturer failed to install body reinforcements in the vehicle
  • Mechanical failure
  • Poorly manufactured tires or broken safety latches

In some instances, injured drivers and passengers may be able to sue the driver of the car that caused the accident. Additionally, injured drivers may also have a case against the government if they were negligent in their construction of the road.

Injured individuals should also keep in mind that negligence in and of itself does not provide grounds for a lawsuit. To have a valid lawsuit, the victim must be able to prove that negligence was directly responsible for their injury. Furthermore, the victim must show that their injury caused them to suffer either financial or emotional damages. Our New York car accident attorneys can help determine if you have a claim.

What Compensation Is Available To Victims Of SUV Accidents?

Individuals who have suffered injuries in an SUV accident may be eligible to receive compensation for any economic or non-economic damages incurred, including:

  • Lost Wages: If the SUV accident caused serious injury to the victim, they may be forced to miss work for an extended period of time. As a result, the victim may be able to recoup compensation for any lost wages that occur due to their injury. Furthermore, if the injury is debilitating, victims may receive compensation for any damage done to their future earning potential.
  • Medical Bills: Injuries sustained in SUV accidents are often severe and can necessitate multiple surgical procedures. As a result, victims may be able to receive compensation for any medical bills related to the injury that are uncovered by insurance. Additionally, victims may be able to receive compensation for any future medical procedures necessitated by the injury.
  • Pain And Suffering: Victims may be able to receive compensation for any long-term pain and suffering caused by the accident, such as emotional trauma or permanent scarring.
  • Wrongful Death: When an SUV accident proves fatal, the victim's family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party. In a wrongful death lawsuit, families can recover compensation for any economic or non-economic damages caused by their loved one's death. Economic damages in a wrongful death lawsuit include loss of an essential wage, funeral costs and medical bills incurred before death. Families can also receive compensation for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering before death, loss of consortium and loss of parental guidance.
