Rollover crashes in Sarasota and nationwide are some of the most serious motor vehicle accidents. When a car or SUV rolls several times and ends up on its side or roof, occupants are most likely dealing with serious injuries. Additionally, they are possibly wondering why the vehicle rolled over.
A vehicle generally rolls over due to a tire blowout, which causes the driver to lose control of his or her vehicle. While these types of crashes can occur in any vehicle, they are more frequent with sports utility vehicles because SUVs have a higher center of gravity. Regardless of the type of vehicle, rollover accidents can be serious and involve serious injuries, such as:
- Broken bones
- TMJ injury
- Nerve injuries
- Femur fracture
- Broken ribs
- Collapsed lung
- Internal injuries
- Herniated disc injury
- Head trauma
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Loss of limbs
Rollover accidents have a higher degree of force involved than most crashes, which often results in more serious injuries. Sadly, defective tires could be behind these serious injuries.
Sometimes tires are manufactured poorly, designed badly, or poor materials and adhesives are used in putting the tire together. When any one of these things occurs, a tire may unknowingly be defective. Defective tires may cause a blowout, sidewall failure, or tread belt separation. As a result, a vehicle could rollover and crash.
Because Sarasota rollover accidents that involve defective tires can be complex cases, victims of such cases need to consult with a skilled Sarasota accident attorney. An experienced attorney knows how to investigate these types of crashes and how to hold tire manufacturers accountable. Also, the injuries that result in Florida rollover accidents can be life-altering that impact a victim and victim’s family emotionally, financially, and physically.
