Roof Pillar Failure Lawyer
The typical car, truck, or SUV has a roof supported by three pillars on each side, typically known as the A, B, and C pillars. Responsible car manufacturers test these pillars carefully to ensure that they can sustain a significant amount of weight. In the event of a rollover accident, these pillars can save passengers’ lives by preventing roof collapse.
When a vehicle has poorly designed or manufactured roof pillars, a rollover accident can quickly become catastrophic. If you or a member of your family has suffered an accident that was exacerbated by roof pillar failure, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Consequences of Roof Pillar Failure
When a vehicle rolls over, the pillars supporting its roof can crumple if they are poorly designed or made with inferior materials, or if the vehicle is very bottom-heavy. This roof collapse can have many painful consequences for the people inside the vehicle, including:
- Injury to the skull or brain
- Spinal cord damage
- Inability to exit the vehicle
- Increased difficulty of rescue attempts
A rollover accident is always dangerous, but if the vehicle is poorly designed or built, the likelihood of severe injuries can be greatly increased. Our roof pillar failure attorneys work hard to help those who have been injured by poorly designed, built, or maintained vehicle roof pillars.
Victims of defective SUV’s or other vehicles can sometimes win financial compensation for their financial, medical, and emotional losses. To learn about your grounds for legal action, contact the roof pillar failure lawyers of the Willis Law Firm at 800-883-9858.
