Car Accidents in Hawaii
When someone behind the wheel of an object that has the power to kill is careless, irresponsible or distracted for even a second, the chances of them killing an innocent victim or leaving a victim with critical injuries are quite high.
Some motor vehicle collisions are caused by a single outside influence over which neither driver has control. It is far more likely, however, for a car crash to be the result of several different factors that come together into a single, terrifying event.
While it is true that, once in a blue moon, no one is at fault for a vehicle accident, an overwhelming number of serious car accidents are caused by negligent actions committed by one or both drivers.
Some common forms of negligence that often lead to serious auto crashes include:
- Inattentive drivers, such as those reading text messages and making telephone calls
- Drives who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are aggressive or reckless
- Vehicles that are poorly maintained
- Roadways and intersections that are badly designed
These and numerous other forms of negligence put thousands of innocent people in harm’s way each and every day, including joggers, bicyclists, pedestrians, children, and even other motorists and their passengers.
