Hawaii Pedestrian Accidents
In Hawaii, pedestrian accidents are common, happening several hundred times per year. Pedestrians often suffer serious or even critical injuries in accidents, and sadly, they sometimes lose their lives. This is mostly due to the fact that pedestrians travel with little to no protection against the force of fast-moving, heavy vehicles. When a pedestrian becomes involved in a traffic collision with a passenger vehicle, they are most likely going to suffer some type of injury. Being hurt in a pedestrian crash is never easy and can land a victim in the hospital for days, weeks, or longer.
