Volvo and the NHTSA
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rates every vehicle that is released to the consumer market, for both overall safety features and more specific features, such as risk for rollover. The various models of Volvo are no exception. For instance, the NHTSA has given the 2010 Volvo XC90 a 19.1% risk for rollover in the event of a car crash for its 4x4 model, just slightly higher than its 2x4 model, at 17.9%. The NHTSA tests various aspects of a vehicle in order to determine its risk for rolling over if a car accident occurs, and it’s important for consumers to be aware of these ratings before, and even after, purchasing their vehicle.
If you or someone you know has bought a Volvo, of any model, and has been injured or incurred cost in a rollover vehicle, you might be entitled financial compensation. Contact the experienced SUV rollover lawyers of the Willis Law Firm today by calling us at 800-883-9858.

There are other models that the NHTSA rates for Volvo owners or potential buyers, but these are some of the ones which are available. Whatever model you purchase, it’s important that you are made aware of your rights in the event of a rollover accident, as you could be eligible to receive compensation from Volvo should your vehicle rollover due to an inherent defect in the car.
