Hawaii Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents are often more severe than regular traffic accidents. Pedestrians are traveling with no protection, and when they become involved in collisions, they often suffer severe injuries that land them in the hospital or worse. Thousands of pedestrians suffer serious injuries every year in traffic accidents throughout the United States.
If you were hurt in a pedestrian crash in Honolulu, you may be eligible to collect financial compensation for some or all of the damages you face in relation to your crash.
