Rhode Island Suv Rollover
Because of their higher center of gravity, sport utility vehicles, or SUVs, are particularly prone to rollover accidents. Their large capacity means an SUV is likely to be loaded with people or cargo, which also increases their rollover risk. And the lack of rollover bars means that the roof is likely to be crushed-and passengers injured or killed-when an SUV rolls over. If you or a loved one was injured or killed in an SUV rollover accident in Rhode Island, you may be able to sue the person at fault in the accident or the SUV manufacturer.
A Rhode Island SUV rollover accident attorney (or Rhode Island personal injury lawyer) can evaluate your situation and explain your legal options. Your Rhode Island SUV rollover lawyer may examine the vehicle and police accident reports, talk to witnesses as well as your doctors and look at other available evidence. If your Rhode Island personal injury attorney thinks you have a viable claim, your lawyer can help you negotiate a settlement with the party at fault in your accident or file a lawsuit if you're unable to reach an out-of-court settlement.
