Although rollover accidents are sometimes caused when a vehicle becomes tripped up on a surface, or even another vehicle, sometimes, inadequate equipment in a vehicle can either provoke injuries in and of themselves or fail to protect occupants from injuries.

Vehicle manufacturers and designers have the data and information necessary to help protect occupants from serious head injuries, neck injuries and back injuries caused by roof crush. Even the glass comprising the windows in a vehicle can be an important factor in protecting passengers and drivers from vehicle ejection.

In some circumstances where occupants of a vehicle that have endured a serious accident, such as a rollover, auto manufacturers may be held liable for inadequacies and defects leading to injury and death.
