Hawaii Car Crashes
American car accidents continue to happen at an alarming rate despite the amazing safety features in today’s vehicles. Auto accidents result in more than 4.5 million injuries for Americans every single year. In Hawaii, there are thousands of auto collisions reported every year and hundreds of people lose their lives in these crashes. It’s easy to think that you’ll never be involved in an accident, however, the reality remains that most drivers will be involved in approximately four accidents throughout their lifetime.
Auto accidents are always sudden and unexpected. Before you are aware of what’s going on, you’re involved in a scary crash and may be in need of professional medical care due to your injuries. Unfortunately, it is totally impossible to prevent each and every collision from happening. However, drivers can choose to remain alert, aware, awake, and sober at all times, which may greatly reduce the likelihood that they will cause an accident.
If you or a loved one of yours has been injured in a Hawaii auto accident, it is likely the incident was the result of negligent driving. The most prevalent causes of traffic accidents in the Aloha State include speeding, intoxication, and distraction. These are three common types of driver negligence seen throughout the United States. Tens of thousands of people become injured each year due to driver negligence. In one recent year, distracted driving caused more than 20% of all crash-related fatalities in the state of Hawaii. If your crash was caused by a negligent driver, you will most likely be eligible to collect financial compensation for numerous damages that may have resulted from your accident and the injuries that followed.
