Auto Accidents in Hawaii
Automobile collisions across Hawaii can be devastating to deal with. Unfortunately, thousands of people are injured every year as a result of collisions on our roadways. Quite often, these accidents take place due to negligent and careless drivers. Common factors that contribute to collisions across our state include:
- Impairment: Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol are most likely to lose control of their vehicles. These drivers may not be able to recognize colors or traffic control devices. They may not be able to maintain safe control of their vehicle and may experience impaired judgment.
- Distractions: There are so many accidents that take place on our roadways as a result of drivers who simply are not paying attention to the road ahead. Common distractions that lead to accidents in our state include cell phones, food, and even talking to passengers.
- Aggressive Driving: When drivers become aggressive while behind the wheel, they are likely to cause accidents that severely harm others. We see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who zip between lanes of travel, tailgating other vehicles, and are reckless while operating their cars.
