Sport utility vehicles, or SUVs, have increased in popularity over the past few years. These vehicles are great for large families or for individuals needing lots of storage room. They can traverse across land without a paved road and can fit luggage, the whole family, the family dog, and still have room for more. But as fun and functional as these vehicles may be, they also have a potentially deadly flaw.
Because of the high center of gravity possessed by most SUVs, they are prone to rolling over during a sharp turn, a tire blowout, or a car wreck.

Avoiding Rollover Crashes
Although Sports Utility Vehicles will always have a high center of gravity, there are certain things you can do to reduce your chances of being in a rollover crash including:
- Never overcompensate
- Hold the steering wheel as straight as possible if you lose control
- Never throw your foot on the brake when losing control
Unfortunately, despite your best efforts to remain safe, a flawed vehicle design can put you, the occupants of your vehicle, and other drivers on the road in great peril. If you have been injured because of a dangerous vehicle design, you deserve to be compensation for the avoidable pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.
