Ford Expedition Rollover & Roof Crush Lawsuit

Ford Expedition was introduced in 1997 as a replacement for the Ford Bronco then later in 2005 a larger version based heavily on the F150 pickup truck using similar transmission, chassis systems, and electronics. Like the Ford F-150, many Expeditions are prone to rolling over at times due to its high center and stability problems inherent with SUVs. The Expedition with 3 rows of seats and capable of carrying up to 8 passengers along with luggage creates a rollover prone vehicle especially when a luggage / roof rack is used too. When a driver is faced with emergency braking or swerving situations, or from sudden tire blowout or tire tread separation, the driver can often lose control and flip over on the highway resulting in severe roof crush failure closed head and spinal cord injuries  If you or a loved one have been injured in a Ford Expedition Rollover call 1-800-468-4878
