Severe Weather, Auto Defects, and Rollover Accidents
Severe weather, including rain, snow, or ice, can be extremely dangerous. This is even truer when a vehicle is also not fit to drive in severe weather. Unfortunately, sometimes vehicles released on the market have flaws that might actually make a rollover accident more likely when driving in severe weather. The attorneys of the Willis Law Firm know all too well the dangers and costs that victims can face when their vehicles are defective in severe weather.
Contributing Factors to Rollover Accidents
Severe weather is dangerous enough by itself, but when a vehicle cannot drive properly in the weather due to a defect, your situation can become even more precarious. Some defects in vehicles that might contribute to a rollover accident or serious injuries in a rollover accident when driving in inclement weather include:
- Poor tire tread
- Brake or engine failure
- Steering failure
- Tire blowouts
- Faulty airbags
All of these vehicle defects could make a rollover accident much more likely to occur or make a person much more likely to suffer from a serious injury in such an accident.
