Hawaii Pedestrian Accidents

In Hawaii, pedestrian accidents are common, happening several hundred times per year. Pedestrians often suffer serious or even critical injuries in accidents, and sadly, they sometimes lose their lives. This is mostly due to the fact that pedestrians travel with little to no protection against the force of fast-moving, heavy vehicles. When a pedestrian becomes involved in a traffic collision with a passenger vehicle, they are most likely going to suffer some type of injury. Being hurt in a pedestrian crash is never easy and can land a victim in the hospital for days, weeks, or longer.

When you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian crash, you deserve to be able to recover without having to go broke or worry about how you will cover the related costs. Especially if your accident was caused by the actions of a negligent driver, you should not have to pay for the damages that you may be facing. You may have many different problems that stem from your crash, ranging from physical injuries to financial burdens and emotional stress. The average recovery time for a serious pedestrian accident injury can vary a great deal depending on its nature and severity. Most often, pedestrians suffer serious head injuries, bone breaks, and spinal cord injuries. Injuries of this nature can take anywhere from weeks to months to recover from or even years.

When you file a personal injury claim with a pedestrian crash lawyer, you may be eligible to collect financial compensation for a long list of damages that resulted from your crash.
