Representing Clients Nationwide
Sport utility vehicles (SUVs) are becoming more popular as alternatives to trucks and minivans, but with the convenience of an SUV also comes an increased risk for rollover due to the vehicle’s high center of gravity. If you or someone in your family has been hurt in an SUV accident, the personal injury team at Chávez Law Group can assist you in seeking monetary compensation for your injuries.
About SUV Accidents
SUV accidents frequently occur due to rollovers that happen as a result of being forced off the road. Factors like inclement weather, speeding, reckless driving, and other factors can greatly increase the likelihood of a rollover. In some SUV accident cases, the rollover is caused by the careless actions of a negligent driver. Because a high percentage of rollover accidents involve a single vehicle, many SUV accident claims are filed as defective vehicle claims against an auto or parts manufacturers. In some recent cases, poor roof construction was targeted as the most important factor in causing injuries.
SUV Accident Injuries
Head injuries, specifically brain injuries, are one of the most common severe injuries that happen during SUV accidents. Spinal cord injuries, neck injuries, and back injuries also cause victims of this type of accidents long-term pain and even lifelong limitations.
