Auto Collisions in Hawaii
The state of Hawaii follows standard no-fault auto insurance laws, meaning that, for the most part, the injured person or persons will need to file a claim with their own insurer for recovery of any accident-related medical expenses no matter what caused their accident.
The most frequent forms of driver negligence in Hawaii auto accidents are:
- Distracted driving, such as sending texts, watching videos, and making telephone calls
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers behaving aggressively or recklessly
- Drivers who do not maintain their vehicles
- Roadways and intersections that are badly designed, such as those with obstructed views or those missing traffic lights or signs
These and countless other types of negligent actions place the lives of thousands of people in jeopardy each and every single day, including children, joggers, walkers, cyclists, and even those in other vehicles on the roadway.
