Rollover accidents are amongst the most dangerous types of accidents that can occur on the road. Although rollover accidents only account for approximately 3 percent of serious vehicle accidents, they account for about 30 percent of people killed while riding in passenger vehicles. Given the right circumstance, any type of vehicle can roll over. However, taller and narrower vehicles, such as sport utility vehicles (commonly referred to as SUVs) are more susceptible to these types of accidents than traditional cars. The higher center of gravity makes SUVs more top-heavy.
If you or a loved one was seriously injured in an SUV rollover accident, you need to hire a law firm that knows what they are doing. At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we build upon our years of experience and resources to deal with rollover accidents. Our experienced and compassionate lawyers in New York treat each client with the dedication and respect they deserve in obtaining the benefits they are entitled to.
Many Americans purchase larger vehicles and SUVs because they feel more secure and believe they are generally safer cars. The false sense of heightened security many motorists experience when driving an SUV becomes more dangerous as they feel secure in driving at dangerous speeds in poor weather conditions.
Statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) only further exemplify the inherently dangerous nature of SUV rollover accidents:
Safety Tips for SUV Safety
Although these statistics are real, it should not deter you from enjoying the driving experience of your SUV or from purchasing an SUV altogether. While you may not be able to completely avoid a rollover accident, you can reduce the likelihood of such accidents if you take certain precautions, including:
SUVs are naturally more prone to rolling over than other vehicles. Even though statistics clearly depict the risk of this danger, few SUVS are built with basic roll bars. When an SUV rolls over, the roof collapses inward, causing serious harm. A basic roll bar can reduce the chances of a collapsed roof.
Victims who are lucky enough to survive a rollover accident can suffer catastrophic injuries that will significantly impact their lives. Common SUV rollover injuries include:
At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we understand the extent of injuries suffered by SUV rollover victims. Our legal team has the knowledge, experience, and financial resources to hold the liable parties accountable for your injuries and to help you obtain the full compensation you are entitled to.
Although any vehicle can roll over, SUVs, pickups and vans are more susceptible to these types of accidents than traditional cars. Generally, a rollover accident happens very quickly. Your SUV can tip over and start rolling before you even realize what happened. The majority of these types of accidents occur when the SUV runs off the road. Some other common types of reasons why SUV rollovers happen include:

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
So many times I wanted to quick and Jeff guided me on the right path. Answered all my questions, always there when I had a concerned regarding the case. Very smart and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services. I appreciate all your help. My financial future is secure for my family and I thanks to you guys.
Words alone cannot express our utmost gratitude at the comprehensive handling of my family’s case. This was a long, drawn out case that took quite some time to come to judgment. Jeff and his team were very thorough and relentless in their pursuit of justice for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.
Jeff Korek has been outstanding in accomplishing a settlement of my lawsuit. He has done everything that a client would ask of his lawyer. He and his staff have always been honest, informative,and trust worthy . His reputation as a lawyer who gets the job done has truly been earned. For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
