Honolulu, HI (February 3, 2023) – Multiple responders were sent to the scene of a car crash in Honolulu on the night of February 3. At around 8:56 p.m., the incident occurred on Punchbowl Street. 

Sources say the collision occurred on Punchbowl Street on the onramp to H-1 West. The Honolulu Police Department and other emergency crews were seen rendering aid to those involved at the crash site. 

At least one person was in need of emergency medical care and transportation to the hospital due to the injuries they sustained in the accident. Currently, the total number of injured victims has not been reported. 

Traffic was backed up near the scene while rescue crews worked in the area. Authorities urged drivers to use different travel routes for the time being. 

We hope for the full recovery of the injured victims. 

Hawaii Auto Crashes

Being injured in an auto accident can be painful and scary. An experience of this nature is not easy to go through. Individuals who are injured in auto accidents may suffer for prolonged periods of time after their accidents. Depending on the nature of their injuries, injured accident victims may have to stay in the hospital for days, weeks, or longer. They may need to undergo extensive medical treatments in order to totally recover. Going through something like this can be expensive and draining. 

Tens of thousands of car accidents happen in Hawaii each year. Approximately 20,000 people sustain injuries in these crashes annually. Sadly, the majority of the car crashes that happen in the United States and throughout the Aloha State are caused by driver negligence. Distracted, fatigued, or intoxicated drivers cause millions of collisions each year that end in injuries and death for those involved. 

Working with a car accident attorney in Honolulu is the best way to make a full recovery after you were injured by a negligent driver. 

It is important for injured crash victims to understand their legal right toward compensation if they’ve been hurt by driver negligence. Driver negligence leads to over 92% of auto accidents reported in the US. If you or someone in your family were hurt in a crash caused by a drunk, drowsy, or otherwise negligent driver, you deserve to be fully compensated for the damages you face.

Vehicle repairs, wage loss, medical care costs, and more may be able to be paid for by financial compensation awarded to you through filing a personal injury claim with an attorney. Even non-economic damages like loss of consortium, pain, and suffering, and more can be covered by financial compensation depending on the circumstances of the crash. A personal injury attorney can help you determine if you are eligible for compensation.
