Car Roof Crush Injuries and Claims

Qualified Farmington Hills Car Accident Attorney

Injuries sustained in a roof crush can be very serious. Often associated with rollover accidents, roof crush is responsible for a great deal of catastrophic injuries and fatalities. There are many causes of these kinds of accidents, but many times it comes down to defects in the planning or the manufacturing of your vehicle. If you have been injured in a rollover accident, especially due to roof crush, then you may be able to get compensation from a product liability claim.

One Reason: A Result of Poor Manufacturing

Car roofs are not supposed to collapse. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) was behind the push for the U.S. to set up standards for car roofs. A car is supposed to be up to standards that would prevent this disastrous result in an accident, just as there are standards in place to help prevent rollovers. Roof crush occurs when, due to a poorly planned structure, the roof cannot handle the car's weight, or there is roof intrusion because of poor manufacturing, such as a bad welding job, flawed construction, or even missing pieces.

The roof itself may be defective, either because it is made up of flawed material, it was poorly planned, or it was clumsily constructed. Defective parts, such as bad quality tires, may have caused a rollover, and are at fault for your accident. If so, then you need an experienced car accident lawyer who can demonstrate that you were injured, that your vehicle was defective, and that this defect caused your injuries. Else, you may be left unable to work even as you face astronomical car and medical bills. If someone else is responsible for your pain and suffering, then you are entitled to compensation to help you on the road to physical and financial recovery.

Common Roof Crush Injuries

Many severe, even permanent, injuries are associated with roof crush. You could suffer from traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can have life-altering consequences. Spinal cord injury or serious neck injury is also possible, and may even lead to paralysis. Even broken bones can be costly, as well as impair your ability to work. You could be facing long and expensive therapy; do not face all these problems alone. If someone else is at fault, then a qualified car accident lawyer can ensure that you receive full compensation for damages and to cover your costs, so that you can move on from this accident.
