Hawaii Pedestrian Accidents

Getting hurt in a pedestrian collision can be painful and scary. An experience like this is something no one ever wants to deal with. Individuals who get hurt in car accidents may suffer for prolonged periods of time for days, weeks, or longer after their crashes. Pedestrians often sustain injuries that are more severe than those who become injured in other types of wrecks. This is obviously due to the fact that when they travel, they are totally unprotected against the force of vehicles.

Depending on the severity of your injuries, if you were hurt in a pedestrian accident, you may be stuck in the hospital for a lengthy period of time, away from work and your family. This can be stressful and overwhelming, causing you to go without much-needed pay and quality time with your family. An experience of this nature may be expensive, time-consuming, and exhausting. 

Every year, approximately 20,000 individuals sustain injuries in traffic accidents in Hawaii. Sadly, most of the car crashes reported in Hawaii and across the nation are caused by negligent drivers. Distracted, intoxicated and fatigued drivers can cause crashes that end in injuries and fatalities. Working with a car accident attorney in Honolulu is the best way to recover financially after you or someone you love was injured by driver negligence.
