Manufacturers of motor vehicles and their component parts are required to abide by strict regulations regarding the design, manufacture, and safety of their products. Many vehicles on the roads today lack sufficient rollover protections, and the makers of these SUVs, cars, and trucks should be held accountable when people are injured as a result.
Roof crush during a rollover can cause severe injuries, including brain and spinal cord injuries, and even fatal injuries. If you or a loved one is suffering because of a rollover or roof crush incident, it is important to talk to an experienced lawyer. It may be possible to recover compensation for medical expenses, long-term care, and more, as well as effect change to prevent others from being injured in a similar fashion.

Based in Somerset, we are available for very serious cases statewide.

Our attorneys prioritize offering our services to those who need us most, people who are seriously injured or suffering due to the loss of a loved one.
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards set minimum requirements for roof strength. When the frame of a motor vehicle is not designed to support the weight of the vehicle when flipped upside down, the roof can give out or cave in — drastically increasing the chances of severe and fatal injuries in the event of an auto accident.
We hire accident reconstructionists and other specialists in various fields in order to investigate rollover and roof crush accidents, uncover automaker negligence and prove our clients’ cases. Preserving evidence is critical in auto defects cases.
Do not repair your vehicle or allow it to be towed away. It should be kept in the condition it was in at the time of the crash.
