The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there are over 300,000 rollover accidents each year. Many of these involve only one vehicle. If you or someone you love has been injured in a rollover, please call California car accident attorney Mickey Fine at (661) 333-3333 for a free consultation.
While the cause of this rollover accident is unknown, many rollovers are the result of faulty vehicle design. Even vehicles with ESC cannot always prevent rollover accidents or the serious injury they frequently cause. These injuries can be compounded or made fatal by improper restraints or design defects that allow for roof collapse and other dangerous consequences. This means that, even when only one vehicle is involved, victims may be entitled to seek compensation by holding negligent auto manufacturers accountable.
