Rollover Accident Attorneys in San Antonio, TX
Sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks have a particular risk of rolling over because of the higher centers of gravity and, often, boxy designs used in older models of the vehicles. Ford SUV’s in particular, have suffered from scrutiny regarding the rollover risk and even the tires used on previous models of Expeditions and Explorer sport utility vehicles.
In some situations where a rollover occurs and auto equipment fails to protect occupants or sparks the accident in and of itself, drivers, passengers and their families may not even realize there was a problem, defect or recall associated with an accident or product failure.
