SUV Rollover Accidents
Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) are inherently more dangerous and are involved in more accidents than smaller passenger vehicles. SUVs are designed to have a high center of gravity, making it more difficult to maneuver and more prone to rollover accidents. This type of design places drivers and their passengers at increased risks for serious injuries and death.
