Rollover accidents result in more fatalities than other types of crashes. Accordingly, the government and motor vehicle manufacturers are working to develop new technologies that will decrease the likelihood of rollover crashes.

Three of these efforts include*:

  • Electronic Stability Control: this technology allows the car to maintain the driver's intended direction even during an extreme steering maneuver.
  • Rollover Air Bags: Side impact head air bags can reduce the likelihood of injury or death in a rollover wreck.
  • Variable Ride Height: this technology can actually raise or lower the ride height of the vehicle while the vehicle is in motion and provide the vehicle with additional stability.

As a New York car accident lawyer, I am hopeful that these technological advances will decrease the number of rollover injuries and fatalities. However, these technologies are not yet universal and they are unlikely to eliminate the risk of rollover accidents completely.

If you have been hurt in a New York or New Jersey rollover accident, then it is important to know that you may have the right to recover damages for your injuries. Please contact an experienced New York car accident attorney at 1-800-PAGAN-911 to find out more about your case and your potential recovery.
