A roof collapse, or “roof crush,” is a common effect of a rollover accident that can lead to serious injury or death. What happens is the structural supports of the vehicle (the doors, the roof supports, etc.) will fail under the weight of the vehicle’s engine block and undercarriage. While some people might see this as a natural issue in rollover accidents, cars are specifically designed to meet NHTSA roof strength standards.
If your car’s roof failed in a rollover accident, then there is a good chance your car is defective. Cars are legally mandated to be able to withstand 2.5 times its own weight on its doors and structures. When it fails to do so, they put passenger lives at risk. Roof collapses are responsible for neck and head injuries, paralysis, and death. In fact, some safety advocates believe that rollover fatality rates are owed to roof collapse. Rollovers themselves are not the deadly component—it’s what happens to passengers when their vehicles stop rolling that could lead to potential injury or loss.
