“Roof Crush” in a California Auto Accident
The Dangers of Roof Cave-Ins During Rollover Accidents
In the event of a rollover accident, roof crush is a primary concern. This occurs when the roof of the vehicle caves in or crumples in a rollover or other accident, severely limiting the amount of space a driver or passenger has to survive. When the roof is crushed in this manner, large spaces may open up in the roof and this may result in passenger ejection from the vehicle. Whether the passenger stays in or is ejected from the vehicle, however, the result of a roof crush may be catastrophic.

A driver or passenger may be at an increased risk of injury if the vehicle is not properly designed or manufactured and therefore lacks in roof strength. When the roof caves in, any occupant in the vehicle will be at risk of suffering severe head trauma, spinal cord injury or neck injury. This may result in paralysis or traumatic brain injury, changing the victim’s life forever. Roof crush in a rollover accident may also result in death.
