Products Liability > Ford Explorer Rollover

Rollovers of SUVs, passenger vans and trucks kill 10,000 people and injure another 27,000 each year.

Rollovers occur in sports utility vehicles when a driver attempts to avoid an emergency with a quick steering movement or when a tire fails. All vehicles should stay on their wheels in an emergency.

In common emergencies, SUVs and 15 passenger vans because of their high center of gravity will "trip" over a front wheel or the rear wheels will break loose, causing the vehicle to go into over steer. In either case, the result is a total loss of control and a rollover.

Heavier is not better. Vehicle instability is aggravated by a full load of passengers, cargo, roof and bicycle racks.

Worse, roof pillars are not designed to prevent massive crushing that causes deaths, traumatic brain injuries and severed spinal cords, even for belted passengers.

Because pickup trucks, SUVs and passenger vans are not classified as "passenger vehicles" they are not required to meet all of the federal motor vehicle safety standards for crash worthiness imposed on cars and station wagons.

Juries have concluded that Ford Broncos and Ford Explorers have specific design defects that make them much more likely than other vehicles to roll over. Other trucks, vans and SUVs are just as dangerous.
