- Rio Rico SUV Rollover Accident Could Be Due to Tire Failure | Legal News | News Ticker
SUV’s have long been top-selling vehicle models in the United States, as they generally present the best of both worlds to their drivers. These larger vehicles provide safety and utility along with the convenience of sedans. Unfortunately, SUV rollover accidents are extremely prevalent as well in the United States, and there are many reasons for these types of crashes. Tragically, another Arizona SUV rollover accident has claimed the life of a person and injured two others, although police have indicated that this incident could be due to tire failure.
According to authorities, the latest fatal Arizona SUV rollover accident occurred this afternoon at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Interstate 19 just south of the Rio Rico Drive exit. 30-year-old Ana Bertha Valenzuela was driving her SUV when she suddenly lost control of the vehicle and it rolled over as a result. 60-year-old Maria Dolores Apodaca of Rio Rico was a passenger in the vehicle, and she was thrown from it as a result of the crash. She was killed at the scene, and both the driver and her young son were taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.
Arizona Car Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the woman who was killed. Losing a life in such a random and violent manner is always a tragedy. In addition, this fatal Arizona SUV rollover accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona car accidents. Every year, more than 65,000 people are injured and more than 1,000 people are killed in these occurrences. Finally, SUV’s are more than 30 times more likely to roll over than other types of vehicles.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
In terms of potential liability, more investigation would need to be done in regards to the potential failure of the tire that may have led to the crash. If it turns out that the tire was defective or that it was not replaced when it should have been by a dealership, it’s possible that the family of the woman who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against those responsible for the tire being attached to the vehicle. A successfully filed claim could lead to an award of damages that would compensate the family for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their lost income and loss of companionship.
If you have lost someone you love to a defective product, you need to seek the help of Arizona wrongful death lawyers who have been successfully defending the rights of grieving families for many years. Contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.
