So many questions follow a fatal accident. Friends and family of the victim want to know what caused the accident that took the life of the person they care about. Just because a wreck only involves one vehicle may not make it easier to find a cause, and this is especially true when it comes to a Colorado Springs rollover accident.
Only last week a rollover accident took the life of someone in El Paso County, but little else in known about the tragedy. The Colorado State Patrol will be investigating the crash, but what are they likely to find? One possible cause could be that some vehicles are simply more prone to rollover accidents; however, that doesn’t make the tragic accident excusable.
SUVs, like the one involved in the recent accident, are plagued with design flaws that increase the risks of rollovers. A high center of gravity and narrow wheel base make these particular vehicles more dangerous. The worst part is safety features within these vehicles often aren’t equipped to handle them flipping onto their roofs, making it more likely for an injury or death to occur.
Families that have lost a loved one in a rollover accident deserve closure and manufacturers can be held responsible for these dangerous design flaws and lack of adequate safety features. However, it takes a skilled attorney to investigate the case and hold them responsible.
