Dodge Durango Rollover - Wrongful Death & Spinal Cord Lawsuits.

Sport Utility Vehicle Rollover accidents comprise a large number of the to highway fatalities each year according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). While few accidents are Sport Utility Vehicle rollovers, almost one-third of fatalities from vehicle accidents occur as a result of rollover of a Sport Utility Vehicle or other passenger vehicle.


You should als know that nearly 70% of deaths in Sport Utility Vehicles occur as a result of a rollover. Sport Utility Vehicle rollovers are very likely to cause the death of occupants who are not wearing a seatbelt. But even if you are wearing a seatbelt, you can be killed in the seatbelt is defective and does not hold you firmly to the seat as the Sport Utility Vehicle rolls over.


Not all Sport Utility Vehicles are the same in terms of safety. There are certain makes and models, and certain years, that have a higher likelihood of rolling over (such as certain Dodge Durango models) than all of the other makes, models and years. As a result, of wanting to keep their profits, the manufacturers did not take all of the steps needed to make the Sport Utility Vehicles as safe as they could. And when they are later sued in a wrongful death or severe injury case, these same manufacturers that chose not to make the Sport Utility Vehicle as safe as they could, then turn against their customers and aggressively defend Sport Utility Vehicle rollover accident cases. In fact, they often try to blame their own customers or some other party for the wrongful death.


It is not as if the manufacturers failed to recognize that rollover accidents occur. They know that these Sport Utility Vehicle rollovers occur. However, they still have failed to ensure that a vehicle's roof be designed or constructed to have sufficient strength to remain sturdily in place upon rollover. The tragic result of that decision by the manufacturers can be fatal or serious head or neck injuries.
