Liability For Orange County Car Accidents
Rollover crashes are among the most deadly types of collisions that a person can be involved in. They account for only a small portion of all accidents, but a large total of all crash fatalities. According to the NHTSA, nearly 30% of all passenger vehicle fatalities involve rollover collisions. The highest portion of fatalities occur with light trucks. There are many different factors that could potentially cause a vehicle to roll over.
- Tire blowouts can cause a car to become unstable.
- Vehicles with a high center of gravity such as SUVs and Vans are more likely to roll over.
- Excessive speed can make vehicles unstable and make rollover collisions more likely.
- Overly sharp turns can lead vehicles to roll over.
- Cargo shift on commercial trucks can also cause rollover accidents.
Depending on the facts of any case, a tire manufacturer could be liable for a rollover collision if it was caused by a tire blowout. Any person that is injured in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a personal injury claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
