SUV types of cars are convenient for a number of reasons, particularly if a consumer needs a larger vehicle with higher capacity and more space inside. However, SUVs, compact SUVs, and crossover SUVs also typically come with higher risks for rolling over if a driver is involved in a car accident. Sadly, many people are injured in accidents like these because there is some vehicular flaw that increases the chances of a rollover accident. For instance, the Mitsubishi Endeavor is a crossover SUV, which already has a higher chance for rolling over than smaller vehicles. Although the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not rated the Endeavor's risk for rollover, consumers should be aware that all SUV models have a relatively high risk for rollover, typically somewhere in the 1 in 5 risk rating.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a Mitsubishi Endeavor rollover accident caused by a vehicle flaw, you might actually be entitled to financial compensation through a lawsuit. Contact an experienced SUV rollover lawyer of the Willis Law Firm today by calling 800-883-9858.
What Increases a Risk for Rollover?
There are several factors that contribute to a vehicle's risk for rollover, and the Mitsubishi Endeavor is no exception. Some factors that can make a vehicle have a higher risk for rollover include:
- Worn / poor parts
- Employer negligence / failure to train
- Design flaw
- Construction negligence / flaw
These factors can significantly increase a vehicle's chance for rolling over. However, because these are factors that are preventable and need to be addressed by a manufacturer or designer prior to the vehicle going on the market, a person may be able to seek financial restitution when injured in a rollover accident.
