Hawaii Car Crashes

In Hawaii, each year, tens of thousands of car crashes are reported. Numerous individuals are left with serious injuries, and some lose their lives due to these accidents. Auto collisions are among the top causes of severe injuries and death throughout the country. Every year, nearly 3 million people are injured in car crashes in the United States. Approximately 32,000 people are killed due to car crashes every single year across the nation.

Injuries that usually result from serious car wrecks include: 

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries

Currently, driver negligence is the leading cause of American car crashes. Driver negligence accounts for more than 92% of the traffic collisions reported. Crashes caused by negligent drivers may be much more catastrophic than accidents that happen for other reasons.

The consequences that arise when you or someone you love is seriously injured in an accident are often severe and difficult to overcome. Not only may you be suffering physically, but you may also be facing difficult financial and emotional issues. It is important for the driver responsible for your accident to be held liable for their negligent actions so they are less likely to harm another person in the future.
