Rollover Collisions in Hawaii
Although most car accidents are caused by driver error, some can also can be attributed to or worsened by flawed safety mechanisms or a defective product. Some vehicle models are designed with roofs that are not able to withstand the force of impact created by a rollover accident, contributing to the number of injuries and deaths they cause. Also, some vehicles are very prone to rollovers, specifically sport utility vehicles.
Those who are injured in rollover crashes might be entitled to compensation for their injuries and other losses. Not only are victims forced to deal with daily pain and suffering, but they are also faced with rapidly growing medical bills while being out of work.
If you were injured by another driver’s carelessness, you are likely eligible to pursue a personal injury claim against the responsible party.
