Ford Escape Lawyers
When Ford introduced the Escape in the early 2000s, the company officially entered the small sport utility vehicle market. The Escape uses a unibody construction, similar to a sedan, and is front-wheel drive. In essence, it is a sport utility vehicle that is designed to drive like a sedan.
Unfortunately, the Escape still takes it most basic features, including a high center of gravity, from SUVs. If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a Ford Escape rollover accident, contact the Ford Escape rollover lawyers of the Willis Law Firm at 800-883-9858 today.
Ford Escape Rollover Dangers
Since the Escape is a sport utility vehicle, its risk of rolling over is greater than that of many other passenger automobiles. In particular, the Escape has a short wheelbase in addition to having a high center of gravity. As such, the Escape distributes its weight over a short distance.
In addition to its short wheelbase, the Escape may cause injuries in rollover accidents due to:
- Roof Defects
- Fuel Line Linkage Problems
- Stuck Throttles
- Seat Belt Defects
These are problems that Escape owners have reported in the past. Individuals who have been injured in Ford Escape rollover accidents can learn more about their legal rights and options from a Ford Escape rollover lawyer.
