Pedestrian Accidents in Hawaii

Throughout the state of Hawaii, we see a significant number of individuals lose their lives as a result of motor vehicle accidents. Regrettably, these accidents are typically a result of drivers who fail to follow traffic laws. When it comes to drivers being distracted, texting and driving is becoming a severe problem in the United States, causing millions of accidents and injuries per year. Over the last year, over 7,000 pedestrians lost their lives in car accidents across the country. Careless drivers caused the majority of these collisions.

Pedestrians are more likely to suffer severe and fatal injuries and accidents because they do not have protection during accidents. As a result, they suffer significant trauma to the head, internal organ injuries, and other injuries that can ultimately take their lives. The sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one due to a fatal collision can be tough to deal with. Unfortunately, we see countless accidents take place right here in Hawaii, leaving families to deal with overwhelming consequences.
