Boston SUV Rollover Lawyers
Despite government regulations to improve safety testing for sports utility vehicles, SUVs continue to be at least three times more likely to be involved in a rollover accident than any other vehicle on the road. Whether by faulty design, hazardous road conditions, or the reckless actions of another motorist, if you or someone you love was injured or worse in a SUV accident, you may be entitled to take legal action against the liable party. The accomplished SUV rollover crash attorneys at the Kiley Law Group, LLC in Massachusetts will fight on your behalf to help you obtain the maximum compensation amount you need to recover.
Compensation for Damages
Rollover crashes often result in serious or even fatal injuries due to the severity of the accident. When the vehicle flips over, the roof may collapse under the pressure and the occupants inside are at a greater risk of suffering traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord damage According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), roughly 63% of rollovers result in occupants being ejected from the SUV, especially if the occupants were not wearing seat belts.
Due to the often catastrophic outcome of a rollover crash, financial compensation may help you or a loved one afford overwhelming medical costs, hospital bills, expensive surgeries, or even funeral expenses. If you believe you or someone you care about was the victim of a rollover collision caused by the negligent actions or wrongdoing of another person, you deserve the experienced legal representation of the lawyers with the Kiley Law Group.
How Are Rollover Accident Caused?
Sports utility vehicles are more likely to roll or flip over due to stability issues created by the vehicles’ top heavy design. With a higher center of gravity and narrow distance between the right and left wheels, it is more difficult for the driver to maintain control of the SUV in an emergency. Common causes include:
- Auto product malfunctions
- Vehicle design defects
- Aggressive driving by other motorists
- Distracted drivers
- Poor street design or maintenance
- Malfunctioning traffic signs
In Massachusetts, the driver responsible for causing an accident is liable for the injuries and damages they have caused. If you were involved in an SUV rollover crash due to the negligence of another person, you may be entitled to receive financial reimbursement for your losses.
