Car suspension and the risk of rollover crash

Posted on November 10, 2014 10:27 am under Automotive Defects

Car suspension refers to the network of coils, shock absorbers, and torsion bars designed to keep the occupants isolated from the bumps, noise, and vibration outside, provide safe handling while braking and curving, and reduce the risk of damaging car accidents, such as a rollover crash.

As the frame of the vehicle moves parallel to the road, tires may interact with bumps and specks along the way, causing it to move upwards. Also, cars may also experience upward movements when trying to brake or while navigating a curve. A properly designed, manufactured, and installed car suspension system would effectively minimize the car’s upward motion, making it less prone to rollover accidents.

Car suspension system manufacturers who fail to ensure that each of their product’s components are designed, manufactured, and installed within adequate safety standards should be held liable for all the damages they cause.
