Experienced in Automotive Product Liability Claims
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, sport utility vehicles (SUVs) are more likely to roll over than other types of motor vehicles. Many rollover accidents are the result of an inherent design flaw of the vehicles. The manufacturer of such vehicles is liable for damages and injuries sustained by occupants under product liability laws. If you have been in an SUV rollover accident, attorney J. Todd Tenge, serving Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins, and surrounding Colorado areas, can review your case and explain your legal rights.

About SUV Rollover Accidents
SUVs are inherently more likely to roll over than other vehicles primarily because of their high center of gravity. Also, many older models lack safety glass and have defective seatbelts, defective tires, inadequate roof strength, and defective door latches – all of which increase the risk of driver/passenger injury in the event of a rollover. The lack of safety glass and defective door latches fail to keep passengers from being ejected from the vehicle if it rolls over, and a weak roof is more likely to collapse in a rollover accident.
Though these design flaws are being rectified in newer SUV models, thousands of older SUVs are still on the road today, putting drivers and passengers at risk of a rollover crash and catastrophic injuries or even wrongful death.
SUV Rollover Accident Injuries
The effects of an SUV rollover accident can be debilitating and devastating. Common injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injury
