Causes of SUV Rollover Accidents

Design defects are a major problem for SUVs. There is a high probability an SUV will roll over and cause serious injuries because they are designed in a manner that makes it difficult to maintain control of the vehicle. Driving an SUV during adverse weather conditions, at a high speed, or while making sharp turns are the types of incidents that lead to rollover accidents. The design flaws that contribute to the high SUV rollover rates are:

  • Narrow wheel track
  • High center of gravity
  • Weight of the vehicle
  • Weak roof structure and supports
  • Defective seat belts
  • Defective tires
