A 36 year old woman was killed in a rollover accident on Blevins St. and Florida Ave. in Corpus Christi around 1:30 am, March 6, 2015. Police say that a patrol officer witnessed the woman lose control of her SUV and saw the vehicle flip several times.

Persons involved in this type of accident should seek the advise of an experienced personal injury lawyer to analyze whether a product liability claim is viable. It is foreseeable to automobile manufacturers that the vehicles designed, manufactured, and sold will be involved in crashes. Therefore, the crashworthiness of the vehicle is an issue that should be analyzed in any rollover accident.
Furthermore, whether a vehicle's roof was designed safely to prevent roof crush and whether a vehicle's seatbelt system and seats are designed safely to prevent injury to occupants are additional issues that should be analyzed in rollover accident cases that result in serious injury or death to occupants of the vehicle.
Anyone who has suffered serious injury or who has lost a loved one due to wrongful death in a motor vehicle accident should consider seeking the legal advise of a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer. Call Sheadyn R Rogers at (361) 356-6057 for a free consultation concerning your case.
