Vehicle Collisions in Hawaii
Traffic collisions in Hawaii can be very hard to deal with. One of the reasons is that you or your relative may have received significant injuries due to the crash. You are most likely grasping at straws trying to juggle a seemingly infinite amount of paperwork coming at you from multiple organizations and multiple people, including your insurance carrier and its claims adjusters, your doctor, surgeon, specialist, or another healthcare professional, the other party’s auto insurance company, as well as anyone else who was even tangentially involved in the crash.
Our Hawaii victim injury lawyers have spent their entire careers dealing with these organizations while delivering reliable legal advice to those who find themselves in this stressful and overwhelming situation.
The two most frequent causes of vehicle collisions in Hawaii are:
Driving While Under the Influence: As stated in a news source out of Honolulu, drivers in Hawaii have the largest number of auto crashes in the United States, per capita. The majority of these crashes are caused by drivers who are under the influence. In Hawaii, a vehicle accident attorney will be able to assist in organizing and informing you of any information pertaining to any current criminal proceedings in order to make certain that full financial damages are awarded to the victims who need it.
A journal published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that this fact is not likely to improve anytime soon. Although deaths caused by drunk driving have dropped, they are likely to continue to do so given that a poll taken of Hawaii drivers showed that they are 50% more likely to get behind the wheel after having a few too many as opposed to the rest of the country.
Driving too Fast: Unfortunately, it is this same way of thinking that also places Hawaii drivers in danger due to vehicles driving excessively fast. Another publication referenced by a local media outlet shows that drivers from Hawaii are in the top 10th percentile when it comes to crashes caused by automobiles being driven at hazardous speeds.
