The Monitor: 15 Passenger Rollover Fatality Spurs Seat Belt Debate, Wigington Interview

Jun 06, 2019

A 15-passenger van rollover killed seven occupants, and authorities say at least four of the rollover victims were not wearing seat belts. The Monitor quoted Jeff Wigington of Wigington Rumley Dunn & Blair LLP, as the firm has represented families of the van’s victims in over 20 cases around the nation.

“The basic problem with the van is that they have a high center of gravity, narrow track width and a short wheel base, which makes them prone to rollovers,” said Wigington. “They are more likely to roll over in any situation.”
