Hilo, HI - Injury Crash Involving Truck, Downed Utility Poles on Kanoelehua Ave

Although there are many different kinds of vehicle accidents and many different ways they can happen, they all share one thing in common; they are predisposed to causing serious injuries to the occupants of the involved vehicle as well as those around them. 

Although a majority of accidents are the result of driver error, some can also can be attributed to or made worse by faulty safety mechanisms or a defective product. Additionally, some vehicles are very prone to rollovers, specifically sport utility vehicles. 

Certain vehicle models also have roofs or sides that are unable to withstand the impact produced by an accident, contributing to the injuries and deaths they cause. People who are injured in car accidents may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries and other damages.
