What is Electronic Stability Control and how can it prevent rollover accidents?

Friday, September 26th, 2014 at 6:23 pm    

By automatically braking individual wheels, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) systems are intended to help drivers maintain control of the vehicle, though it does not increase the available traction. With this increased control, drivers are more likely to keep their vehicle on the road should they need to perform extreme maneuvers.  The vehicle is thereby more smoothly maneuvered in the intended direction following the driver’s natural reactions. What’s more is that ESC systems will activate so quickly that most drivers will not even perceive any need for steering corrections, dramatically reducing the likelihood of a rollover accident.

The rollover accident lawyers at the Willis Law Firm understand that even with the additional safety measures ESC systems offer, the very design of many SUVs continue to contribute to serious rollover accidents. If you have incurred injuries from a rollover accident that may have been caused by the inherent design of your vehicle, speak with a member of our legal team today by calling 800-883-9858, and learn about your legal options.
