Uvalde Rollover Accidents
Uvalde is a great place to live and raise our families, but even in the security of small town life there is the risk of an automobile accident that could result in serious injuries.
It’s no secret to car manufacturers that the roofs on the vehicles they build have design flaws that pose a danger to passengers in Uvalde rollover accidents. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports that 35 percent of auto accident fatalities result from rollover accidents. Depending on the body style of the vehicle, some rollovers are more prone to severe injury and death than others. While 25 percent of rollovers involved passenger vehicles and minivans, the number jumps to 59 percent when the rollover involves an SUV. This is primarily due to weak roofs and defects inherent to the design of many of the SUV’s on the road today.
Many SUV’s have weak roof structures composed only of thin sheet metal with little interior protection. There are points of collapse built into the frame that allow the roof to cave in during a rollover collision. Depending on the level of impact, this buckling of the roof can lead to severe injuries of the head, neck, and spine for anyone in the vehicle. Many of today’s SUV’s also have windshield frames that are poorly reinforced and also result in occupant injuries during a rollover accident. These structural weaknesses among SUV’s are the leading cause of severe injuries and fatalities in Uvalde rollover accidents.
Uvalde rollover accidents are very dangerous to passengers and other drivers on the road. Infants and children are more disposed to suffering serious injuries due to these horrifying accidents, which include spinal cord, brain and crushing bone injuries, and many other serious injuries.
