Wrongful Death Caused by SUV Rollovers
Filing a Law Suit When a Loved One has Died in an SUV Roll Over
If a loved one has died from an accident involving an SUV roll over, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim against the manufacturer of the vehicle. Every year, there are countless deaths involving SUV’s. In keeping with the US Hіghwау Traffic Safety Administration, rollovers caused by SUV’s hаve a rate between 20% tо 25%. Thіѕ реrсеntаgе is much higher than autos, which have around a 10% rollover rate. No one should have to go through the loss of a loved one because of a defective design on these vehicles. If you have recently experienced the death of a loved one, and it involved a SUV, please call Jeff Roberts and Associates at (615) 425-4400.
Wrongful Death Claims Involving SUV’s
If you are closely related to a person who has died in a SUV roll over, there are certain expenses you may have incurred. A spouse or children of the deceased may need compensation for living expenses that they must now accrue. They may also need costs covered for the loved one’s funeral, and medical expenses incurred from the wreck. Most of all, a family member needs compensation for the loss of life by the loved one in an SUV roll over that could have been avoided, simply because the manufacturer was negligent in the SUV’s design.
