Roof Crush in Rollovers
A rollover accident is always a terrifying encounter, and the stresses put on a vehicle’s frame in such a situation can be devastating for both the vehicle and any occupants trapped within. Most vehicles are designed with safety measures in place to ensure that the roof of the vehicle will remain structurally sound even if the vehicle rolls, but not all vehicle manufacturers are willing to prioritize the safety of passengers over the cost of producing the car.
Any defect in the roof of a vehicle can result in a roof crush should the vehicle roll over, putting the occupants at risk of major injury. If you have sustained such an injury in a rollover accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the losses you have suffered.

Hazards of Defective Roofs
Every part of your vehicle should be designed with safety in mind, including the roof. When any part of a roof is defective or faulty, a rollover accident can result in serious complications that should have been avoidable such as the following:
- Shattering windows
- Roof collapse
- Forced opening of doors
These conditions can put vehicle occupants at a highly increased risk of injury to the head and neck, potentially resulting in permanent nerve damage, paralysis, or even death.
If a faulty roof has exacerbated your injuries in a rollover accident, you may be able to hold the manufacturer of the vehicle liable for your medical expenses and other losses.
