Hawaii Pedestrian Collisions

Hawaii is a large state that is home to lots of people. Due to the high population in Hawaii, there are a lot of traffic accidents reported each year. On average, more than 10,000 yearly vehicle collisions occur in Hawaii, causing injury to numerous people. 

Being involved in a car crash can be a disruptive and overwhelming experience. Those injured in serious auto accidents usually find themselves dealing with a mountain of debt and severe physical injuries that can negatively affect their daily lives and function. Being forced to stay in the hospital for a prolonged period due to severe injuries can result in lost wages and medical bills.

Pedestrian crashes cause injuries to many individuals in Hawaii per year. Pedestrians are often more vulnerable than other people on the roadway, especially if they become involved in an accident. Injured pedestrian victims need to speak with an attorney concerning their legal rights after being hit by a vehicle. 

Injured victims should be compensated for the damages and losses due to another person’s negligent actions. If an injured victim did not cause the accident they were hurt in, they should not have to pay for all costs associated with their injuries.
