Pedestrian Injuries in Hawaii
Although pedestrian accidents happen for various reasons, an overwhelming majority of them are caused by irresponsible drivers.
Not only are accident victims forced to cope with daily pain and suffering, but they also face rapidly accumulating medical bills while being unable to work. If you were hurt due to the carelessness of a driver, you are most likely entitled to pursue a personal injury case against the person responsible.
Some common examples of the kinds of negligence that result in pedestrian accidents include:
- Driver distraction, such as texting and making phone calls
- Driving under the influence
- Reckless driving
- Inadequately maintained vehicles
- Poorly designed intersections and roadways
These negligent driver behaviors put countless people in danger, especially cyclists, and pedestrians. When the person in control of a potentially deadly vehicle is careless or inattentive for even a split second, the chances of them taking a life or leaving a victim seriously injured are extremely high.
