Roof Crush in Florida Car Accidents

Roof Crush in Florida Car Accidents Can Lead to Serious Injuries

You probably don’t often think about the roof of your car much. If it keeps the wind and rain out of your vehicle, you likely think it is doing its job. The reality is that in a split-second, the strength of your roof could mean the difference between life and death.

When a Florida car accident causes your car to rollover, the strength of your roof is crucially important. Rollover accidents happen if you slide off the road, are side-swiped by a speeding car, or even if your vehicle (such as a SUV) is not balanced and stabilized correctly.

In rollover accidents, the roof has to sustain the full weight and force of your vehicle. To make matters worse, perhaps the most vulnerable part of your body, your head, is directly beneath the roof. It is absolutely crucial that your roof can stand up to the challenge.

Unfortunately, many rollover accidents result in roof collapses each year. While some of these instances are due to the force involved in these wrecks, others are caused by defects in car manufacturing or design.

If a roof is defective, it may:

  • Snap at the roof pillars
  • Collapse onto a driver or passengers
  • Crush or trap people inside the vehicle
  • Fly off during a violent wreck

If you or a family member has been injured in a rollover accident in which the roof collapsed or caved into the cabin of the vehicle, it is important that you call a Florida car accident attorney as soon as possible.
