SUVs are designed with a high center of gravity for road clearance and reduced weight for fuel efficiency. Unfortunately, some of these vehicles would have benefited from a wider wheel base because they have a tendency to roll over when taking sharp turns or making quick lane change maneuvers. Rollover accidents can result in severe or fatal injuries when passengers are thrown from the vehicle or suffer head injuries from a roof crush.

SUV Rollover Crash Facts
- Motor vehicle accidents in which a vehicle rolled over accounted for more than half of all single-vehicle crash deaths. (NHTSA)
- Vehicle rollover crashes are especially serious because they so often result in head injuries when the roof of the vehicle is crushed. Head trauma is the most frequent type of fatal and nonfatal injury in SUV rollovers. (NHTSA)
- Injury victims who are thrown from a vehicle are much more likely to suffer severe injury — spinal cord injury, head injury — or death, than people who remain in the vehicle.
- The rate of serious injury in passenger vehicle rollover crashes is 36 percent higher than in crashes where there is no rollover. (NHTSA)
You do not have to be driving fast or driving recklessly to cause a serious accident with an SUV. Nearly all SUV manufacturers have had lawsuits brought against them for poor design and failure to warn vehicle owners about the exact dangers involving these vehicles.
