Whatever model of car you drive, you should be able to use it without fear of it rolling over after a collision with another vehicle, or a stationary object. However, sometimes car manufacturers put their profits before the safety of their customers, and thousands of people in the United States have been injured or killed in rollover car accidents in recent years. SUVs are particularly at risk of rolling over, due to being taller than the standard car, with a lower center of gravity. Several class action lawsuits have been filed due to the increased risk of rollovers after car accidents, such is the extent of the damage caused by toppling SUVs.
As mentioned briefly earlier, the increased height and low center of gravity of various sports utility vehicles has seen numerous drivers, in Los Angeles and beyond, sustaining serious injuries, including head injuries. There have been plenty of advances in safety-related technology, and improvements in legislation relating to the safety of motor vehicles, however, too many car manufacturers see these regulations as the full extent of their responsibility, rather than the minimum standard they are expected to meet. Measures should also be taken to ensure that roofs do not collapse and cause head injuries, should a rollover car accident occur.
