Rollover Car Crashes in Hawaii
Although a majority of car 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. Certain vehicle models have roofs that are unable to withstand the impact produced by a rollover accident, contributing to the injuries and deaths they cause. Additionally, some vehicles are very prone to rollovers, specifically sport utility vehicles.
A rollover accident occurs when a vehicle overturns onto its roof or side. These accidents are predisposed to causing serious injuries to the occupants of the involved vehicle as well as those around them.
People who are injured in a rollover accident may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries and other damages. Not only are accident victims forced to cope with daily pain and suffering, but they also face rapidly accumulating medical bills while being unable to work. If you were hurt due to the carelessness of another driver, you are most likely entitled to pursue a personal injury case against the person responsible.
