Driving a motor vehicle is dangerous enough without having to worry about the unnecessary and sometimes deadly SUV rollover accidents that plague the roads today. Unlike a regular automobile or trucking accident, accidents in which a vehicle rolls over are often more violent and subject the driver and passengers to serious injury, the possibility of being ejected, and in the worst cases, death. This is particularly true with Sports Utility Vehicles.
On January 19, 2001, a jury awarded $15 million to a young man who suffered quadriplegia when the roof imploded in his S-10 Chevy Blazer after a rollover. The plaintiffs at the trial introduced evidence that General Motors had decided against partially strengthening the roof on its 1992 S-10 Blazer because it would cost about $9.00 in metal and its factory would need to be retooled. This kind of gross negligence is inexcusable.
