Sport utility vehicles or SUV's are fun to drive. They have become the new generation of the family station wagon. As skilled Chicago car accident attorneys we handled many cases involving SUV crashes. Many individuals purchase an SUV under the misconception that they are safer than passenger cars.

Every year in the United States, it is reported that rollover accidents are responsible for the deaths of over 10,000 individuals. Rollover accidents also account for over 200,000 injuries. Rollover accidents account for greater than fifty percent of all deaths caused in single-vehicle collisions. Injury to the head or head trauma is the most common injury as a result of a rollover accident. Over sixty percent of deaths occurring as a result of a rollover accident are due to passengers being ejected from the vehicle.
An estimated 10,000 passengers are killed each year as a result of rollover accidents By design, Sport Utility Vehicles have a high center of gravity and a narrow wheel base. The combination of its high center of gravity and narrow wheel base increases the probability that an SUV will rollover when it is involved in a collision or sudden changes in driving conditions. Many times these rollover accidents occur when a SUV driver is traveling at a high speed and suddenly maneuvers to avoid an accident or obstacle in the road. When an SUV roll over occurs, the roof design is insufficient to prevent a collapse. This puts the passengers at an increased risk for a traumatic brain injury or serious head and neck injuries.
