Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) may seem safer on the roadways, but thousands of SUV crashes occur every year in Pennsylvania. After an SUV accident, you need Jim Ronca’s 30 years of experience and outstanding advocacy to obtain results.
SUVs, pickup trucks and minivans have become more popular over the last 10 years, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. More than 72,000 vehicle crashes in Pennsylvania involved an SUV, van or pickup truck in 2011. Of these accidents, there were more than 300 deaths that year, which accounts for nearly half of all fatal crashes. When combined with cars, SUV crashes make up the majority of vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania.
The Dangers of Rollovers
The taller, often top heavy body of SUVs makes them far more likely to roll over in single-vehicle and multi-vehicle crashes. Common factors that may lead to a rollover include excessive speed, possibly combined with poor road conditions, alcohol or drug use, and swerving.
