When vehicles rollover in traffic accidents, defective roofs collapse on the driver and passengers causing death and more often catastrophic brain injury. Auto safety expert and Crashworthiness Attorney Todd Tracy demonstrates why victims may be able to file an auto accident lawsuit against the carmaker.
The vehicle’s roof structure, when it crushes down onto an occupant, will take the skull, will take the head, and can cause catastrophic brain injury. You have to remember what the purpose of the vehicle’s roof structure is. It is to provide a safe survival space zone, a safety zone for the occupants inside the cab. When a vehicle’s roof structure performs like we see behind me in this particular rollover, the roof contacts the head so violently, catastrophic brain injury can result.
So why is it important to keep the roof upright? So that we can prevent catastrophic brain injuries from happening, like we see what happened to this crash test dummy when the roof collapses and crushes down on the person’s skull.

If you, a family member, or friend have suffered a traumatic car accident injury or they were killed in an auto accident, there may be grounds for a product liability lawsuit against the car maker. The victim’s or family members of the deceased person may be entitled to significantly more money in damages than just a negligence case about the cause of the accident.
The Tracy Law Firm focuses on “Who Caused The Traumatic Car Accident Injuries or Death” — not who caused the accident.
Whether you were at fault or not in the cause of the accident, car companies are required by federal motor vehicle safety standards to make vehicles that will protect the driver and passengers from catastrophic injuries or death.
