Roof crush accidents in Colorado most often occur during a rollover accident and frequently lead to very serious or fatal injuries, including Traumatic Brain Injury and spinal cord injuries.
The Denver injury attorneys at Lonn Heymann Law Firm, P.C. have the medical and legal resources and experience to assist you and your family following a rollover or roof crush accident in Colorado. Rollover accidents are not always the result of a car accident. Other causes can include defective wheels and tires, a vehicle defect or faulty design, and road defects, including crumbling shoulders or missing guardrails.
Roof crush accidents are very complex cases, from both a medical and legal standpoint. At Lonn Heymann Law Firm, P.C. we will first work to ensure that you are receiving the medical care you need and that your immediate concerns are addressed, including employment issues, medical bills and insurance coverage.

After a full determination, we will pursue justice on your behalf by seeking compensation from at-fault drivers, insurance companies, tire or automobile manufacturers and other parties responsible for your Colorado roof crush injuries.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates about 215,000 rollover accidents occur each year in the United States – seriously injuring some 60,000 motorists. However, certain vehicles are more prone to rollover accidents, including light trucks, minivans and SUVs. Because of their high center of gravity, these vehicles are at up to four-times greater risk of a rollover accident. When a defective design is responsible for your accident, the vehicle manufacturer can and should be held responsible for injuries sustained in the accident.
How a vehicle’s roof withstands a rollover accident is another important consideration in investigating a roof crush accident. In 2010, Consumer Reports found the Acura TL and TSX, as well as the Audi A3 and A4 and the Hyundai Genesis did well in rollover accidents. Meanwhile, the GMC Canyon, Scion TC and Hyundai Accent, faired the poorest.
