SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) were supposed to be the safest vehicles on the road. Until drivers discovered that a high center of gravity and narrow tire track made SUVs three times more likely to rollover in an accident.
Poorly designed passenger vehicles, trucks and 15-passenger vans can also cause unnecessary accidents and deaths. Each year in the United States, approximately 10,000 occupants are killed in rollovers and more than 17,000 are seriously injured.
The vehicle and SUV rollover accident attorneys at Bernheim Dolinsky Kelley represent the victims and families of victims of these crashes. We fight the manufacturers who put their unsafe vehicles on the road, knowing the risks involved.

SUVs have a higher rate of rollover accidents due to a large number of crashworthiness defects. These documented flaws include:
Whether they are consciously aware of the potential safety hazards or not, vehicle manufacturers can be held responsible for the crashworthiness of their products.
If you or a family member is involved in a rollover crash, you may be able to file a product liability claim against the vehicle or tire manufacturer. Product liability law protects consumers who have been injured or killed by defective products. These products include poorly designed vehicles or defective safety features.
