California SUV Accident Attorneys

The very qualities that make SUVs attractive to many motorists also make them more likely to roll over and cause serious injuries.

SUVs have a high center of gravity and a narrow track width — the distance between the passenger side and driver’s side wheels. This top-heavy design means SUVs are more likely to roll over.

SUVs ride high above the pavement, giving drivers a clear view of the traffic and a false sense of security.

The attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, have successfully represented clients injured in SUV accidents involving Ford Explorers and other vehicles. We have obtained significant verdicts and settlements in cases against major auto manufacturers, including Ford, Honda, Toyota, General Motors, Mercedes Benz, Chrysler, Isuzu and Mitsubishi. We have the experience and knowledge to prevail in these challenging cases.

Rollover Dangers

A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration published in 2007 found that SUVs are more than twice as likely as passenger cars to roll over in single-vehicle accidents. Injuries and fatalities often occur even when occupants are wearing seat belts in SUV rollover accidents. While the addition of electronic stability control on newer model SUVs may help reduce rollovers, this technology is not yet standard equipment on all models.

Roofs and support pillars are sometimes not strong enough to protect passengers in a SUV rollover accident. This lack of crashworthiness is a type of design defect our auto defects team will study closely.

Tires and SUV Accidents

Tire failure puts motorists at risk of serious injuries in SUV accidents. Tread separation on SUVs often leads to loss of control and rollover, particularly when the failure occurs on a rear tire. The product liability attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, are national leaders in tire defect litigation. Besides numerous consumer complaints about defective LRE tires, some brands of defective LRE tires have been recalled by manufacturers.
