Although some accidents may be the result of a driver error, others may be blamed on manufacturing and defective vehicles. Companies such as Toyota and Ford have recalled thousands of SUV's in the past due to concerns about rollover accidents.
SUV's are more prone to rolling over due to their high center of gravy and narrow wheel track. Emergency actions such as swerving to avoid hitting a vehicle can easily throw the SUV off balance and cause the driver to lose control.
The Insurance Institute for Highway and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration often perform additional testing on rollover accidents in order to discover why these types of accidents happen and how vehicle manufacturers can help keep consumers safer.
