Roof Crushed

Roof Crush Injuries From Rollover Accidents

There are over a quarter million fatalities caused by roof crushes during rollover accidents every year.  The majority of these occur because the automobile does not have the proper roof pillar strength.  As a result, the roof can cave in on the passenger compartment, causing serious injuries and in some cases fatal injuries.  Pieces of the roof may also themselves cause serious bodily injury, piercing a passenger during an accident.  In addition, the entire roof may peel off, leaving passengers exposed to ejection.  Due to the nature of the risk, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries such as paraplegia and quadriplegia are common roof crush injuries.  Brain injuries and broken bones may result as well.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have set standards for Roof Crush Resistance, nevertheless every year there are thousands of needless deaths because defective automobile roofs can not withstand a rollover accident.

If you or someone you know has lost their life or suffered a roof crush injury because of a defective automobile, contact a national product liability attorney at Kirkendall Dwyer LLP to evaluate your potential claims and right to financial recovery.
