2009 Kia Sorento
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rates the overall safety of vehicles before they are released to the market. Kia models have become very popular due to successful marketing campaigns and competitive pricing, but the NHTSA rates the 2009 Kia Sorento as having anywhere from a 19.1% risk to a 21.2% risk for rollover accidents, depending on which specific model one chooses. Rollover accidents can be very dangerous, and if your Kia Sorento rolls over due to a design flaw, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation.

Consequences of Rollover Accidents
Any motor vehicle accident is likely to result in extensive vehicle damage and severe injuries for those who are involved. Those which involve a rollover incident are typically even more destructive because automobiles are not designed with a focus on reinforcing the roof or providing overhead protection to a vehicle’s occupants. The following are some possible consequences of a rollover accident:
- Crush injuries due to the collapse of the roof
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Cranial fractures
- Neck injuries
Carmakers have an obligation to ensure that the vehicles they design, build, and sell do not unnecessarily endanger the safety of those who travel in them and they should be held accountable for the failure to uphold this duty.
