Hawaii Car Crashes

Severe auto accidents can wreak havoc on victims and their family members. Every year, over 6 million car crashes happen in the United States. These crashes injure more than 3 million people and take the lives of over 40,000 individuals annually. In Hawaii, tens of thousands of auto collisions occur yearly that injure thousands of people and take the lives of hundreds. Despite Hawaii’s reputation as a beautiful island paradise, there are still several auto collisions that take place here on a regular basis. Negligent driving is a national problem that injures and takes the lives of thousands of people per year. 

Driver distraction, intoxication, speeding, and fatigue are some of the most common types of driver negligence displayed by Americans. Most often, however, drivers choose to look at their phones while behind the wheel, causing devastating and even deadly accidents. When you or a loved one of yours has suffered serious injuries in a car crash, you may be going through an extremely difficult time.
