Hawaii Vehicle Collisions
Car accidents are among the top ten leading causes of death in the United States. In 2021, more than 40,000 people were killed in auto collisions in the United States. This is a 10% increase from the previous year and the largest yearly increase recorded by the National Highway Traffic Association ever. Because so many people drive vehicles on a daily basis, we tend to shy away from the scary truth of how dangerous it can be.
In Hawaii, thousands of people sustain injuries serious enough to seek medical attention every year in vehicle collisions. Additionally, hundreds of people lose their lives per year in car accidents. No one ever wants to go through being seriously hurt in a car accident, but it happens constantly. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics reported that every 60 seconds in the United States, approximately 13 car accidents occur. Roughly 27% of all accidents result in injuries, which is equal to three injury crashes per minute.
According to car insurance estimates, the odds of you being involved in a car crash during a 1,000-mile trip are about 1 in 366. The average driver files an insurance claim for a car crash approximately once every 18 years. When you or a loved one are hurt in an accident with another person, it’s important to determine who caused the crash. If you figure out that it was the other party, they need to be held accountable.
