San Jose SUV Rollover Attorneys

Work with Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP - Call (800) 900-0863


Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) have gained enormous popularity in the United States in recent years. They are marketed as comfortable vehicles for driving around town and as durable vehicles to be used for off-road excursions. In reality, most SUV's are not designed for off road use, and pose a threat to a driver who is merely driving on the street. If you or a loved one has been injured in an SUV rollover accident, contact an auto accident lawyer immediately.

SUV rollover accidents can result in serious injuries, and injured individuals can seek compensation for:

  • Rehabilitative care
  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost ability to work

Vehicles Prone to Rollovers

SUVs have a high rollover rate in single vehicle accidents. This is caused by its high center of gravity and narrow wheelbase. Combined, these two factors may cause a sport utility vehicle to rollover in the event of emergency maneuvering by the driver. In the event of quick emergency steering, many typical passenger vehicles (not SUVs) will spin out or skid, but not rollover.

SUV's are shown on commercials packed with a lot of cargo for vacation or a road trip. For people who drive SUVs, this practice puts the driver and passengers at risk for rollover because the vehicle may become top heavy.

Vehicles that are designed for off road use are equipped with the standard roll bar for protection. Although marketed for off road use, most SUVs do not come equipped with this safety feature, which again, places the driver and passengers in danger.
