Roof Design Defect Lawyers in Corpus Christi
We Handle Dangerous Product Claims
In a rollover crash, the roof structure and the vehicle’s seatbelts must be strong and designed properly, or the occupants of the vehicle will suffer catastrophic injuries. First, the roof must be strong enough to avoid deformation into the safe zone around the occupants. Second, the seat belt system needs to operate in such a manner to prevent the occupant from leaving the seat and going into the roof. Occupants that properly wear their seatbelts should not be punished for acting responsibly in their vehicle and have the roof crush down on them, making them more susceptible to injury. Automobile manufactures have known for a long time about the importance of the roof structure in a rollover accident, and they know how to fix it. They simply choose to focus on their bottom line and choose profits over people, with tragic results.
