Across the country, including in Oklahoma, traffic accidents are categorized by the type of motor vehicles involved. Among the more popular types of vehicles in Oklahoma are sport utility vehicles because they seem to offer more protection in accidents, hold several passengers comfortably and can carry light cargo loads. In decades past, SUVs were deemed unsafe because they were susceptible to rollover accidents, but SUV manufacturers have redesigned these vehicles to improve stability on the road. However, because rollovers still happen, those responsible must be held liable for any damages, injuries or deaths that result.
At Dawkins & Gowens, P.L.L.C., we have handled SUV accidents from rollovers to collisions. Every accident requires a thorough examination to determine exactly what caused it and why victims were injured or killed. After any SUV accident, we work with law enforcement officers and private investigators to investigate the crash, allowing injured victims and their families to focus on their recovery. If the accident was a rollover and no other vehicles were involved, we look at the vehicle to determine if it was poorly designed or whether faulty parts contributed to the accident. If design was to blame, a product liability claim will be one course of action that injured parties can consider.
When it comes to any SUV accident involving other vehicles, we can hold other parties accountable if their actions or negligence caused the collision. By employing our legal services, the injured parties have a good chance of recovering compensation in court. In fact, our main goal in handling such claims is to secure full compensation for any injured person who is experiencing financial injuries as a result of collision.
