Ford Truck Rollover
Rollover accident reports have afflicted Ford trucks, including the Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty truck models. Defects in the truck’s manufacturing appear to have made these trucks vulnerable to rolling over. The roof of the driver’s compartment has caved in following a rollover, placing the occupants in severe danger of disastrous harm.

We have successfully prosecuted dozens of rollover claims against prominent manufacturers including Ford. We may be able to file a claim on your behalf if you were hurt when your Ford F-150, Ford F-250 or Ford 350 rolled over.
Problems with the Ford F-250 and Ford F-350
Ford F-250 and F-350 vehicles have received several major consumer complaints. according to the NHTSA. The bulk of concern is about losing control of the car at highway speeds because of minor road bumps.
Hundreds of customers have reported to the NHTSA that striking even a small bump on the road while going at high speeds causes the entire vehicle to shake, making steering problematic. To reduce the violent rocking, they had to come to a complete stop, putting them at risk of being rear-ended while stopped on the highway. This has been called the “death wobble,” Drivers are frightened to drive their trucks at highway speeds because of the danger of losing control.
Although the NHTSA is still investigating crash reports, it appears that the “death wobble” fault of both the Ford F-250 and F-350 Supers has led to past rollovers. Drivers who need to turn a corner while their truck is shaking may lose control. This can send the truck crashing over onto its side before rolling over and crushing the roof.
Death Wobble in Ford Trucks
After being in a rollover accident while driving a Ford F-250 or F-350, it is vital to recall details about what caused the terrifying event. If your truck violently trembled and you complained to your dealership about the problem, then your claim is particularly strong.
Even if your vehicle had never wobbled before the crash, the problem is so widespread among Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks that Ford and your local dealership should have been aware of it and warned you. However, there is no current recall statement for these two types of vehicles due to the risks of wobbling or rollover.
