Why are SUVs involved in more rollover accidents and roof failures than other cars?
Although SUVs are being made safer than they ever have been in the past, they still have a narrower track width and a higher center of gravity than other passenger cars on the roads, making them easier to flip over and be involved in a Cedar Rapids rollover accident.
Owners of SUVs need to understand that there are higher chances of rollover crashes in these vehicles. However, the vehicle should still be safe upon impact, especially the roof. SUV manufacturers should design and build an SUV with the necessary roof support so that in the event of a rollover, a roof failure won't occur.
When a roof caves in on occupants of a vehicle, the roof was most likely not built or designed well, and victims of these accidents can pursue damages from the vehicle manufacturer.
