Vehicle Rollover Lawsuits

Under normal driving conditions, passenger vehicles are expected to handle maneuvers without posing risks for rollovers. Swerving to miss a deer on a road, hitting another vehicle or going around a sharp corner, should never pose a rollover risk. However, this can happen with some taller vehicles, especially SUVs and certain trucks. When a rollover occurs that is caused by the manufacturer’s design, not the ability of the driver, any injuries sustained may be cause to file a vehicle rollover lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Taller vehicles, often with a narrower wheelbase, have trouble functioning when a quick maneuver is needed. Swerving can cause the vehicle to slide and then tip, creating a rollover situation. Not only can occupants be injured as they are tumbled during a rollover, there is also a risk of the roof crushing if not properly reinforced. This can lead to severe injuries and even death, an unfortunate chain of events when caused by a preventable vehicle design flaw.

Manufacturer Defects Can Cause Rollover Accidents

Many issues with SUVs have been reported. The infamous Ford Explorer/Firestone tire controversy involved over 200 deaths and 700 injuries blamed on both poorly designed tires and an SUV that was prone to rollovers. Even with such scrutiny on the industry, there continues to be concerns with vehicles that are poorly designed to handle different road conditions and driving maneuvers, including:

While rollovers do occur with all vehicles in the right circumstances, when a vehicle seems to tip or roll during standard operation, it may be due to design flaws. The scene of the accident can tell a tale and witness testimony can verify that a vehicle rolled under normal driving conditions. These facts can help build a case for victims injured from a rollover crash that could have been prevented with improved vehicle design for safety.

If you have lost a loved one in a rollover accident, or been injured yourself, and you believe the vehicle design is to blame, contact our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP. We offer free consultations at our offices in Georgia and work on a contingency basis. If we take your case, you will never need to pay us up front for legal fees.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
