Leaders in Rollover Accident Litigation
Each year, more than 10,000 people are fatally injured in vehicle rollover accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That's more than one third of all fatal motor vehicle accidents. In addition, nearly 50,000 people sustain an incapacitating injury in rollover accidents each year.
Dedicated to Improving Public Safety
The attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, represent victims of rollover accidents involving Ford Explorers and other sport utility vehicles (SUVs). Additionally, we represent victims of collisions and rollovers of 15-passenger vans. These vehicles are a major public safety concern because of their high occupancy rate and frequent use for school and organizational transportation.
It was because of the pioneering work of GB&W attorney Christine Spagnoli, that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigated the dangers posed by 15-passenger vans and eventually issued warnings about their safety.
High Center of Gravity + Narrow Track= Increased Rollover Risk
SUVs, pick-up trucks and vans are all at high risk for rollover accidents because of their high center of gravity and relatively narrow track — the distance between the driver's side and passenger side wheels. While newer SUVs equipped with stability control systems are less likely to roll over in an accident, plenty of older model SUVs are on the road, posing a danger to occupants.
Defective or mis-inflated tires and large loads of people or cargo can add to the risk of a vehicle rollover.
