Rollover Collisions in Hawaii

Kunia, HI - Kunia Rd Site of Three-Vehicle Collision With Injuries

When a vehicle overturns on the roadway, its occupants can be severely injured, especially if they are not properly restrained. 

Accidents involving vehicle rollovers are ten times more likely to end in fatalities than any other kind of car crash.

Rollover accidents are also prone to causing more serious injuries. Just a few of the injuries that a rollover crash can cause include: 

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal trauma 

These injuries often leave victims buried under a pile of medical bills and unable to work. 

If you were injured in a vehicle rollover, you could be entitled to financial recovery. Our law firm can help you recover monetary compensation for:

  • Medical expenses 
  • Continuing medical needs
  • Lost income due to missed work
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering

There are multiple scenarios that can lead to vehicle rollovers, but the most common causes in Hawaii include:  

  • Debris in the Roadway: Anytime a driver swerves to avoid or fails to notice debris in the roadway, they are in danger of losing control of their vehicle and potentially being involved in a rollover accident. Dropped cargo falling from poorly loaded trucks, detritus leftover from construction work, and even potholes can be the cause of a vehicle rollover serious enough to cause injuries. 
  • Automobile Defects: SUVs, trucks, cars, and other motor vehicles need to be created and built in such as way that the occupant’s safety is paramount during an accident. Manufacturing flaws or deficiencies in the vehicle’s steering, electrical stability control feature, brakes, tires, or other components can result in preventable rollover accidents. If a defective part caused your accident, you can seek damages via a product liability claim.
  • Car Crashes: Rollover accidents can also occur when one vehicle crashes into another. Drunk driving, running red lights, speeding, and many other kinds of driver negligence can pave the way for an accident during which one or more vehicles overturn. If you were injured in a rollover crash caused by another driver’s carelessness, we can help you bring them to account.
