Hawaii Auto Accidents

Every day, about 30 car crashes are reported in Hawaii. Each year, about 10,000 auto collisions take place in the Aloha State. Auto collisions are a leading cause of serious injuries and fatalities in the United States and throughout Hawaii. Yearly, more than 6 million car accidents take place in the US that causes injuries to more than 3 million people. Sadly, about 40,000 people lose their lives annually due to traffic collisions throughout the country. 

Most of the car accidents that happen in the United States and throughout Hawaii are caused by some form of driver negligence. Driver negligence has grown into a persistent and serious issue throughout the country. This is most likely due to the ever-increasing popularity of smartphones. It seems virtually impossible to go anywhere without seeing someone staring down at their phone screen, totally oblivious to the world around them. Scarily enough, people engage in this activity while behind the wheel, causing severe accidents that end in injuries and death. 

Reports concerning negligent driving in the United States reveal that more than 400,000 auto collisions happen due to the actions of distracted drivers each year. This number only continues to grow.  Unfortunately, more than 3,000 individuals lose their lives annually in these crashes. Other kinds of driver negligence include speeding, intoxication, and fatigue.
