Statistics show that mechanical failures contribute to about 15% of all automobile accidents; this number can be reduced with proper care of your vehicle. In some instances it is the manufacturer's fault. Manufacturers use quality control procedures to make sure their vehicles meet quality expectations and are safe to drive. However, sometimes a defective part may slip through the process, causing an accident.
Details of the accident are not known at this time. If the investigation determines that her vehicle turned over because of a mechanical failure, her family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the parts manufacturer.
