Can I File A Suit If My Loved One Has Died From An SUV Rollover Accident?



When you have had a loved one who has died from an SUV rollover accident, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim against the manufacturer of the SUV. Thousands of individuals have died as a result of using an SUV vehicle. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the SUV has a rollover rate of between 20 percent to 25 percent. This figure compares with the rollover rate for a passenger vehicle, which has a rollover rate of 10 percent. No person should have to experience the loss of a loved one due to the defective design of an SUV. You can call an SUV rollover attorney to discuss any wrongful death claim today.

Types of Damages in a Wrongful Death Claim

The family members of a person who has died as the result of an SUV crash may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the manufacturer and the other driver. A family member may want to obtain compensation for a wrongful death case to cover the following expenses:

  • The costs of funeral administration.
  • The costs of burial.
  • Any medical bills incurred by the individual prior to death.
  • Loss of enjoyment of one's life with the loved one.

Schedule the Initial Consultation

You can schedule the initial consultation meeting with an SUV rollover attorney today. You can discuss the facts of the case that led to the death of your loved one. An SUV rollover accident lawyer will want to interview any witnesses who were present at the time of the accident. An accident lawyer may also try to gather experts who can testify about the design defects that were present in the SUV at the time of the accident. The initial consultation gives the lawyer the opportunity to carefully review your case and develop a strategy for settling your case. If your case is able to be settled outside of court, then a lawyer will likely try to pursue this option in order to avoid a lengthy trial.
