Car Accidents in Hawaii
The aftermath of an automobile collision can be incredibly devastating. Regrettably, thousands of collisions are reported in Hawaii every year. Quite often, these accidents are preventable. Innocent people continue to suffer due to negligent and careless drivers. Leading factors in automobile collisions reported in Hawaii include:
- Drivers who failed to yield the right-of-way to other motorists nearby.
- Drivers who travel well above the posted speed limit.
- Drivers who tailgate other vehicles.
- Drivers who switch lanes recklessly and carelessly.
- Drivers who run red lights at intersections.
Any negligent or careless action can cause severe harm to other drivers who are traveling nearby.

- Spinal cord injuries that can lead to paralysis.
