Commercial Passenger Vehicle Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents can affect a variety of vehicles, but they are most common in those are too tall for their width. This sort of design significantly raises a vehicle’s center of gravity, making it much more likely to roll over when turning or making emergency maneuvers. Frighteningly, commercial passenger vehicles such as buses and vans often have this problem, subjecting them to the same rollover risks as SUVs and other taller vehicles.
At the Willis Law Firm, we believe in providing the victims of rollover accidents with a powerful voice to fight back against the party responsible for their injuries. We understand how difficult this process may be, which why we work closely with our clients to provide them with peace of mind during their legal action.
Commercial Vehicles at Risk of Rollover Accidents
Passengers in commercial vehicles aren’t necessarily safer than SUV or pickup truck passengers when it comes to rollover accidents. The following vehicles may be more likely to roll over due to their higher centers of gravity:
- Passenger buses, such as city buses or coach buses
- School buses
- Passenger vans
If someone is injured in a rollover accident in one of these vehicles, he or she may be entitled to sue for compensation for damages. Because the vehicle in question is a commercial vehicle, the company that owns the vehicle may share liability with the vehicle’s manufacturer.
