The Dangers of Roof Crush
One of the most important elements of a vehicle’s crashworthiness is the structural integrity of the roof. If the roof is crushed or otherwise deformed in a rollover or other type of accident, it may directly intrude into the head space of passengers. This can substantially increase the likelihood of catastrophic injuries, including the following:
- Severe head and brain trauma
- Spinal cord injury
- Back and neck injury
- Paralysis (quadriplegia and paraplegia)
If the impact is severe enough, the results can be fatal. For this reason, automakers have the duty to produce safe vehicles that come equipped with the necessary roll bars or adequate roof support required to prevent roof collapses. If an automaker’s failure of this duty results in an accident, they can be held liable for any damages that result from such negligence.
