Injuries From Auto Accidents in Hawaii
Although there are several causes of vehicle accidents, the majority are caused by careless driving. Common types of irresponsibility that often lead to auto accidents include:
- Distractions while driving, such as texting and making phone calls
- Driving while intoxicated
- Reckless driving
- Poorly maintained automobiles
These drivers’ reckless conduct endangered countless individuals, including bikers and pedestrians. When the driver of a potentially lethal vehicle is negligent or inattentive for even a fraction of a second, the likelihood of a fatality or major injury is quite high.
A competent accident attorney in Hawaii will be able to pinpoint any negligent acts that led to your injury.
In addition to enduring everyday agony and suffering, accident victims confront fast-increasing medical expenditures while unable to work. If you were injured due to a driver’s recklessness, you might likely file a personal injury claim against the liable party.
Even if you are not at fault, the driver’s insurance company will often just cover your medical expenses. This implies that none of the extra costs associated with your injury, including lost wages, impaired earning ability, and pain and suffering, will be reimbursed. This is just one of the many reasons why we advise you to seek the aggressive legal counsel of a Leavitt, Yamane & Soldner personal injury attorney.
If you were hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s carelessness, you should contact a qualified Hawaii personal injury attorney who knows what you and your family are through.
