Although someone is injured in a motor vehicle accident nearly every 10 seconds in the United States and a person is killed every 13 minutes, GMC Yukon rollover accidents can result in especially devastating consequences. Because of their higher center of gravity, SUVs are more likely to flip over, sometimes crushing the victims inside. This dangerous variance can be the difference between life and death.
Many times, GMC Yukon Rollover Accidents prove to be disastrous because of weak vehicle roofs that collapse during rollovers. In many of these roof crush/roof collapse cases, the roof actually intrudes into the driver and passenger spaces, causing lower-cervical neck fractures or other serious and potentially fatal injuries. Other head and spinal injuries can result when the rollover occupant is thrown or ejected from the vehicle during the rollover, and even in extremely low speed rollovers the impact of the person ejected during the impact with the pavement or ground proves to be deadly.
If you are the victim of SUV manufacturing negligence, you need to contact a qualified and experienced SUV rollover attorney or personal injury lawyer immediately so that you can be rightfully compensated for the preventable suffering that you had to endure. It’s important to start the process as soon as possible so that the statute of limitations constraints in your state don’t expire, leaving you without the rightful recourse for financial reparations.
