Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

Helping Victims Injured in SUV Rollovers in San Diego

ESC is a computer-assisted system of speed and traction sensors that allow the selective braking of individual wheels to recover control of vehicles at risk of skidding or rolling over. New regulations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will require ESC systems in place on some motor vehicles beginning with the 2009 model year. That same regulation will require it on all cars, SUVs and pickups by 2012.

Could Your Accident Have Been Prevented with ESC?

According to a recent insurance industry study, ESC can reduce the risk of single-vehicle accidents such as SUV rollovers by 40% and the risk of fatalities in such accidents by 56%.

Though available for years as a luxury option, auto manufacturers are only now preparing to install ESC as a standard feature in all motor vehicles. Failure to protect against a known risk SUV rollover, for example by implementing a known preventive measure (ESC), has been shown to be a sound theory of liability against vehicle manufacturers throughout the U.S.
