Vehicle Rollover Risk
Elk & Elk’s auto accident attorneys can help you pick up the pieces after a rollover wreck
Elk & Elk’s auto accident attorneys understand that each time we get into a vehicle, we place our trust in the manufacturer’s quality control and safety standards. We also place a great deal of faith in the researchers and regulatory agencies governing the crashworthiness of the cars and trucks in which we travel and share Ohio’s and America’s roadways.
If you or someone close to you has been involved in an automobile crash in which defective manufacturing or lax oversight is suspected, especially a rollover, roof crush or other wreck in which the vehicle’s crashworthiness appears at issue, give the auto accident attorneys at Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., a call. We’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Just dial 1-800-ELK-OHIO for your free, no obligation case evaluation, or fill out our online contact form.
Rollovers responsible for one-third of motor vehicle deaths
A study released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in January 2011 shows that although rollovers occur in only 3 percent of crashes, they’re behind about one-third of all motor vehicle occupant deaths. The NHTSA has taken steps to reduce these numbers, like requiring all vehicles manufactured after 2013 to be equipped with standard electronic stability control (ESC), which has been shown to decrease the number of rollover and run-off-the-road wrecks, the Detroit News reports.
Elk & Elk’s product defect lawyers know that despite ongoing advances in stability control and occupant safety, many older, less stable and potentially dangerous cars and trucks remain on our roads. Considering how many miles Americans collectively drive in a year (nearly 3 trillion in 2010, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation) the chance that you or a loved one may be exposed to an unsafe vehicle is considerably better than fair.
Our product defect lawyers can find the facts and protect your rights
It’s Elk & Elk’s mission to use the knowledge we’ve gained through the years, along with the resources we’ve built, to keep you and your family protected after a rollover or any crash involving a defective vehicle or one proven to be of substandard crashworthiness. Our auto accident attorneys know the tricks defense lawyers use and insurance companies try to pull. We’ll do our best to see that you are treated fairly, but we aren’t afraid to take a case to trial if justice isn’t being offered. And we’ll do it all at no upfront cost to you.
