Car Crashes in Hawaii
Tens of thousands of car crashes are reported in Hawaii per year. Over ten thousand people are injured in these accidents and some even end up losing their lives. Car crashes are among the most common causes of severe injuries and death in the United States, especially among people ages 15-20. Every year, about 3 million people sustain injuries in auto accidents in the United States. Approximately 32,000 people are killed annually in car accidents across America.
Injuries that usually result from severe auto accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
At this time, the main cause of American car crashes is driver negligence. Negligent drivers account for more than 92% of reported traffic collisions. Accidents caused by the actions of negligent drivers may be much more catastrophic than collisions that happen for other reasons.
The consequences that arise due to sustaining a severe injury in a car crash are usually difficult to endure. Not only do victims suffer from physical injuries, but they also face difficult financial and emotional problems in the aftermath of their accidents. It is important for the negligent driver who caused your crash to be held legally responsible for their actions so they are less likely to endanger other people in the future.
