Why Did Your Vehicle’s Roof Collapse in a Sarasota Rollover?

Most drivers don’t think twice about the roofs of their vehicles—not until they are in a serious Sarasota car accident in which their vehicle flips and lands on its roof. Sadly, a person in this situation can be seriously injured or killed in an instant if a roof collapses into the cabin of the vehicle. When pressure is put onto the roof, like it is in a rollover crash, a roof crush or roof collapse may occur, even though it is not supposed to happen.

A roof collapse may have been the result of one of the following:

  • Weak or defective roof
  • Collapse of vehicle’s cabin
  • Defective or weak roof supports
  • Poor roof construction
  • Design or manufacturing defect

When a roof caves into the cabin of the car, wrongful death can occur or other injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Lower-cervical neck fractures
  • Facial injuries
  • TMJ injury (dislocated jaw)
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of limbs (amputation)
  • Disfigurement
  • Head trauma
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Fatal injuries

For those who have survived a violent rollover crash in Florida, they may suffer from lifelong injuries and disabilities and will need all the help and financial assistance that they can get. If you or someone you love was injured or killed in a Sarasota rollover accident, you need to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer today. An attorney can help determine if the vehicle was defective and help you pursue a lawsuit against the automobile manufacture.
