Hawaii Car Wrecks
Around 30 serious car accidents take place in Hawaii per day. In the United States, car wrecks are a top cause of severe injuries and fatalities. Especially among people ages 15-20, auto accidents are the leading cause of death. More than 6 million auto crashes are reported every year in the United States. Over 3 million people are hurt in these accidents and more than 40,000 lose their lives.
The majority of auto accidents are caused by driver negligence. This means that drivers act carelessly while behind the wheel and fail to exercise reasonable caution in the way that every driver should. For instance, a negligent driver may have run a red light and smashed into your vehicle. It is in your best interest to contact a lawyer as soon as you can in a situation like this.
Negligence can happen in many different ways. For example, it is possible to be negligent by failing to take the proper safety precautions while driving, like running a red light or stop sign. Another example is when drivers perform unsafe acts such as looking at their phones or speeding. Thousands of people choose to operate their vehicles while using alcohol, drugs, texting, or speeding. This causes millions of people to become injured and lose their lives yearly. When someone is hurt due to the actions of a negligent party, the injured party and/or their family may qualify for financial compensation for damages.
You may be suffering a great deal when you’re hurt in a serious auto accident. Not only may you be dealing with pain from your injuries, you may also be worrying about how you’ll pay for the expenses related to your wreck. Dealing with all of this on your own can be overwhelming and stressful.
If a negligent driver caused your injuries, you can file a personal injury claim with an attorney. A personal injury lawyer in Hawaii can help you get money for the costs associated with your medical care, lost wages from being stuck in the hospital, and more.
