Have You or a Loved One Been Injured In an SUV Rollover Accident? We Can Help!

Rollover AccidentSport utility vehicles, commonly referred to as SUVs, have become quite popular with drivers over the last two decades. The combination of roomy interiors, higher driving profiles, sense of comfort and secure off-road capabilities, and other desirable features have made these vehicles one of the fastest-selling segment of automobiles. However, the higher center of gravity of SUVs also makes these vehicles prone to rolling over and causing devastating and fatal accidents. In fact, SUVs have the highest rollover rate of any class of passenger vehicles, with most rollovers occurring when the SUV leaves the roadway.

The Los Angeles SUV rollover attorneys at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas have years of experience in helping SUV rollover victims recover the full compensation they are entitled to under the law. We are dedicated, yet aggressive, in helping you get the money that you deserve for the injuries you suffered.

How SUV Rollovers Happen

An SUV rollover is one of the worst things that can happen to you while on the road. SUV rollovers may only occur in approximately 3 percent of all serious motor vehicle accidents, but these accidents account for about 30 percent of auto collision fatalities.

Given the right circumstances, any vehicle can roll over. However, sport utility vehicles are more likely to roll over because of their taller, narrower designs and higher center of gravity that make them more susceptible than traditional passenger vehicles.

When a vehicle rounds a curve, sideways forces shifts its center of gravity to one side. This can have a dramatic effect on the balance of the vehicle. The lateral forces increase with speed and also with rapid changes of direction. For example, if you make too sharp of a turn in one direction and then attempt to overcorrect it in the other direction, the transition can setup a pendulum effect that can eventually cause you to lose control.

The Grim Statistics of SUV Rollovers

By their very nature, SUV rollover accidents are more dangerous than other typical motor vehicle accidents. The false sense of heightened security most SUV drivers experience is the very same reason that makes these accidents more dangerous.

Statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) only justify the danger of these top-heavy sport utility vehicles:

  • There are more than 11,000 fatal rollover accidents each year in the U.S.
  • Rollover accidents account for more than half of all single-vehicle accident deaths
  • SUV rollover accident increase the chance of serious injury by 36 percent
  • More than 90 percent of rollover accidents involve a single vehicle

Even though SUVs are naturally more likely to roll as compared to other passenger vehicles, few sport utility vehicles are built with basic roll bars. As such, when a SUV flips, the roof absorbs the brunt of the force. Thousands of SUVs are recalled each year because of their increased likelihood to roll or because they do not meet the standards set for automobiles by the NHTSA.

From the start of my untimely and horrific fall at the most unsafe flight of stairs. Which was in a privately owned complex, where by the way, the owners truly believed they were, as they say, “above the the law”. The MOST WISE DECISION I MADE WAS TO CONTACT THE HABBAS LAW FIRM! This firm from the initial meeting (they came to me!!) Photos were taken of all aspects of this poorly kept complex and a promise I shall never forget! They promised to take great care of me with medical professionals, fully inform me of all the correspondence with the opposing party/insurance company. Most of all have me compensated for the pain and misery the on site owners daughter put me and my daughter through! True to their word, SAM HABBAS AND ASSOCIATES LAW FIRM DID JUST THAT! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FIRM TO ANY AND ALL PERSONS WHO NEED A TRUSTWORTHY PROFESSIONAL LEGAL TEAM!!! From the initial meet and consultation, the scheduling of medical appointments, the medical professionals, the wonderful receptionists at HABBAS LAW FIRM, my paralegal SUMMER, and of course my team of THE BEST OF THE BEST LAWYERS! 5💫 rating! By the way, settlement negotiations came and in a matter of minutes HABBAS LAW FIRM upped and secured a handsome settlement. Thank you 🙏 to all the most amazing team whom I shall always recommend, and appreciate! P.s This poorly managed complex was forced to make all repairs and changes to meet safety code!👍🏼Amanda Inland Empireread more

I had such a great experience with Samer Habbas & Associates from the very beginning of working with them. The process was so easy from the start. They came to me to get the details of the accident, they asked me for a few additional documents which I scanned in, and then they took it over completely. In a time of need, they were amazing with taking all the burden off of me and eventually getting me a great result as well. I would highly recommend them to anyone.read more

I was involved in a major car accident in 2015 and was referred to this law firm by an acquaintance. Samer and his team handled my case for over 3 years. During this time, I felt at ease knowing that I was in good hands. I was able to move on with my life and let my attorney’s office handle the rest. Samer and his team educated me on what to expect in the process and guided me through every step of the way until the settlement. They were always professional and quick to respond to my requests and worked tirelessly to get the compensation I deserved.I highly recommend this law firm to anyone seeking legal counsel on auto accidents. A huge thank you to Samer, Corbin, Mike and the rest of the team!read more

I was in an accident a week before Christmas, my car was totaled and my arm was broken in several places. Therefore I was in need of a couple of pretty serious surgeries. Having never been in a car accident and being completely lost as to where I even begin, I was referred to Samer' Law Firm by a co-worker. Within hours of being released from the hospital they had sent someone to my home to take a statement, to began what was a seamless process that surprisingly required very little from me which I was thankful for considering I was out of work for the next 5 weeks with my injuries. I worked closely with Selena Bazan and Mike Habbas, they were both extremely patient in explaining what was completely a foreign process to me. Throughout the entire case I had plenty of questions or needed clarification, they were a phone call or email away to answer and to take the time to explain any and everything to me in detail and address any concern I had. Even when returning back to work if there was something that needed to be taken care of in person they came to me at my office. I was warned by several people who have been in accidents how matters like this can take months on months, even years. As of today my case is resolved! While maintaining professionalism and ensuring that I knew how important my case was to them, I always felt as though they genuinely cared for my well-being and that I received both the medical attention, after care and compensation I deserved. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the treatment that I received from Samer habbas and Associates.read more
