Hawaii Car Accidents
Each day in the United States, more than 17,000 auto accidents are reported. These accidents cause injuries to more than 7,500 people and take over 100 lives daily. Yearly, there are more than 6 million vehicle collisions that injure approximately 3 million people and take the lives of about 40,000. In Hawaii, about 10,000 car accidents are reported per year or nearly 30 per day. Car accidents have become one of the main causes of death in America due to driver negligence. In the past decade, driver distraction has caused over 400,000 traffic collisions per year.
Dangerous road conditions, vehicle malfunctions, and driver errors are the most commonly seen factors that contribute to car accidents in the United States and throughout Hawaii. However, driver negligence is the main cause, causing more than 92% of reported car crashes each year. Drivers who choose to pay attention to anything other than the roadway while operating their vehicles endanger the lives of everyone they encounter on the roadway, putting them at risk for severe injuries or even fatalities.
Speeding is another commonly seen display of driver negligence. Each year, more than 11,000 deaths are caused by speeding. This is equivalent to about 30% of the national fatality rate related to car crashes.
Sustaining serious injuries in a car crash can be devastating. Depending on the nature of your injuries, you may be stuck in the hospital for a long time, unable to make a living or see your family and friends.
