Willis Law FIRM  - Houston, Texas


           Jeep Grand Cherokee Rollover & Roof Failure

      Chrysler's Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of its most popular luxury SUVs. Sadly however ,the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Cherokee don't have strong enough roof pillars and sufficient metal strength to withstand the SUV's weight and energy of a highway rollover accident. Drivers of these Grand Cherokees, the SUV's Jeeps Liberty and Jeep Wrangler are often shocked to see severe roof collapse and intrusion into the once thought "safe" passenger space. Often the roof supports fold down and collapse down onto the passengers causing severe closed head and spinal cord injuries and even death. Rollovers happen all the time, especially to drivers of Jeeps that are out on highways and back roads where deer and animals can suddenly jump out in front of them causing a sudden avoidance braking and over-steering resulting in loss of control and rollover.

Designing vehicles with stronger roofs padded or cushioned interiors, airbags, side curtain airbags, better seatbelts, but the best device has been the addition of the  Electronic Stability Control (ESC) or rollover computer to help prevent vehicles from losing control and rolling over in the first place.

  Injury Prevention       About the Law Firm

Injuries from a rollover type of roof crush are usually severe and often fatal. When the roof crushes the occupant's head and spinal cord are the first to be impacted and loaded resulting in closed head injuries, paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, suffocation, amputations & deaths. 

Roof crush failures can be mild to severe. There are four main types of roof crush deformations patterns:

  • Cathedral Roof Collapse
  • Shearing - Sideway Movement
  • M Shaped & FMVSS216 Test

Each of these collapses present different types of potential injuries.
