Car Accidents in Hawaii

Every year, car crashes are the cause of countless injuries and deaths across Hawaii. There are many cases where these accidents completely disrupt the lives of those involved. We see victims left with broken bones, internal organ injuries, and other severe and traumatic injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Trying to deal with the overwhelming consequences can be quite challenging.

There are countless instances where innocent people are harmed as a result of negligence. Some of the leading factors in auto collisions that occur across our state include:

  • Alcohol use: Drunk driving remains a significant problem and is one of the leading causes of collisions in Hawaii.
  • Speeding: Traveling at too high of a speed is a significant factor in many fatal accidents, particularly on highways and busy roads.
  • Road conditions: Damage to the road, such as cracks, potholes, and other road defects can result in crashes if drivers are not careful.
  • Distracted driving: Drivers who become distracted while behind the wheel due to cell phones, food, or passengers in the car are more prone to causing accidents.
  • Weather conditions: Inclement weather conditions, such as foggy weather or heavy rain, can severely affect a driver’s visibility, which can lead to a serious collision.
