Hawaii Pedestrian Collisions

Honolulu, HI - Skateboarder Critically Injured in Traffic Accident on Kapiolani Blvd near Kona Iki St

Pedestrian accidents are some of the most severe crashes that occur in Hawaii. Pedestrians are at risk for serious injuries or even fatalities if they become involved in a traffic collision due to traveling with no protection against the force of fast-moving vehicles. Hundreds of pedestrians are killed yearly due to catastrophic accidents. If you or a loved one of yours has been injured in a negligently caused collision, you have legal options to help you recover.

A lawyer can help determine fault, and when it is determined that your accident was caused by another person, a lawyer can get you financial compensation for your losses.

When you are financially compensated for the damages you may be facing in relation to your recent collision, you will then be able to focus on your emotional and physical health. You should be able to focus on your health and well-being, and that of your loved ones, without having to worry about the monetary aspect of your crash.
