Injury-Causing Collisions in Honolulu
Injury-causing collisions are a serious issue in the United States and throughout the state of Hawaii, particularly when multiple vehicles are involved in a single wreck. In fact, close to 10,000 car crashes are reported annually in Hawaii, and these incidents cause thousands of people to sustain injuries. Furthermore, every year, more than six million car wrecks are reported nationwide, most of which are caused by driver negligence.
Driver negligence can be displayed in countless ways. However, the most common are speeding, intoxication, distraction, and fatigue. Drivers who pay attention to their phones, the radio, other people in their cars, and anything other than the roadway while operating their motor vehicles put themselves and everyone else at risk for serious injuries or even fatalities.
For example, in one recent year, over 11,000 people were killed due to auto accidents caused by speeding. Speeding is one of the most dangerous types of driver negligence because it leaves drivers no time to stop in case of an accident and increases the dangers and risk of catastrophic injuries in the case of a crash.
Sustaining injuries in a traffic collision is never easy. You may be dealing with debilitating pain, suffering, emotional trauma, overwhelming stress, and more. Your finances may be under assault due to outstanding medical bills, vehicle repair costs, and wage loss.
