In the instance of a rollover crash, vehicles are designed to protect occupants from serious injuries resulting from the serious blows a roof and other portions of a vehicle crashing into the ground or other surface.
Reinforced with pillars, the roof of a vehicle is designed with the technology and quality materials necessary to safeguard he precious space between an occupant’s head and neck and the roof of the vehicle. Defective roof pillars or those that do not adequately provide that protection may actually fail to keep occupants safe as a car, truck or SUV rolls.
In addition, other safety equipment, specifically designed to offer protection during a crash, can actually pose serious risks to drivers and passengers when they malfunction or contain serious flaws.
