Los Angeles LGBT SUV & Van Roll-Overs
Have You Been Involved in an SUV or Van Roll-Over?
Many believe that SUVs & vans are safer and offer more protection than smaller vehicles. Contrary to popular belief however, SUVs & vans are automobiles most susceptible to roll overs during collisions. Why? Because they are top heavy and have a high center of gravity. The SUV can turn on its side or roof in situations such as when the driver is making a sharp turn at increased speeds, when the vehicle loses control and swerves off the road, or during harsh weather conditions. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 280,000 rollover accidents are reported each year, resulting in more than 10,000 deaths every year, and comprising over 50% of all single vehicle auto accidents. Additionally, the way SUVs are designed can cause potential safety hazards including: crushing or collapsing of the roof due to deficient roof strength, which can also cause crushing of passengers, as well as defective seat belts, failing to tighten or retract during the accident
